So this season one of my main obsessions has been headbands, the kind that are like mini fascinators with flowers, sequins feathers and lace :)
I think this trend may have started with the Diane Von Furstenberg (one of my favourite designers) SS09 shows, which featured many floral head pieces...

Although the winter versions have been a bit more classy in darker colours.

Bambako have the best range of fascinator inspired headbands this season.. here are just a few...

Celebrities have really embraced this trend on the red carpet and for everyday casual looks.. heres just a few I've found...
Eva Mendes takes one headband from the red carpet to her
casual look with simple but elegant hairstyles.

I love Nicole Richie's hippie style beaded headband, laid back
and cool... just her style.

Although I've really gone off Mischa Barton lately I love this
headband, it's similar to one I have myself and looks great with
this hair colour.

I thought I'd include a few of Zooey Deschanel too because I think
she is the most beautiful girl alive and I LOVE those headbands :)

So here's a few quick pics of my fascinator inspired headbands (sorry about the quality, I meant to take them earlier in the day but forgot so had to make do with the bad lighting in my room)...

(click to enlarge)
The first is just a simple black sequin bow but I thought it was quite cute. The second some of you may recognise from one of my earlier blog posts about pretaportobello.com although I bought the green colour instead of the gold, I thought it would just be a bit different and it's nice and festive. The third is my absolute favourite, it was a Christmas present from my Mom and is just perfect, it has feathers, lace, a big flower and lots of jewels and beads :) the picture really doesn't do it justice but I'm planning on wearing it for New Years Eve so ill try and get a better pic to show you then.

I hope you've all had an amazing Christmas! I've seen a few of your present posts and I'm planning to get a little one done in the next few days too :) make sure you all do an outfit post of your NYE get up too :) can't wait to see how gorgeous you all look.. my friend is having a house party (less hassle than going to a club) and I'm so excited to be with all my favourite people.

  16. I am so over the bow headbands, but I really love the colorful feather and flower ones, nice picks!

  17. Those DVF ones are so seriously cute!

    I would start wearing some more if I wasn't so worried about having a small head :(

    They suit you, and they're just the edge or quirk you need to make an outfit stand out :)
