Headgear

Thoughts on the latest trends in headgear???

asos headband headgear 20


I was recently doing a bit of on-line shopping at ASOS when I saw many, MANY ridiculous headgear options that made me laugh.

Felicia of My Boring Life and I were discussing this goofball trend via twitter, and we decided to collaborate on said topic with a couple of blog posts, and perhaps warn the viewer to proceed with caution before following any headgear trends.

I tend to think that hair, makeup and jewelry should be sufficient adornment from the neck up (with possible exceptions for kings, queens and brides), but that's just me.  If someone wants a bouquet, a bird's nest, a treasure trove, a food tray, or a crown of thorn's sitting atop their head, I guess they can have at it.


Thoughts from Felicia of My Boring Life:

I saw a group of young high school aged girls wearing these fool-ass things at a Yeah Yeah Yeahs show in Portland earlier this summer.  It wasn't so much the GIGANTIC MASS of tumorous faux flowers from the finest dusty bin at Michaels' craft store, but the outfits they were wearing to "compliment" the headdress.  Most of them were wearing high-waisted diaper short-shorts with off the shoulder crop tops.  If you have eyeballs and the gift of sight you've probably noticed that this is just what all the kids are wearing these days.  Not only that but I spotted a gaggle of young girls going to their Homecoming dances last month wearing dresses so short and tight that even Courtney Stodden would throw shade. Like, cooch out flapping in the damn wind.


HAHAHHAHAHA!!!  Felicia and are in agreement that the trend featured above (as well as many other trends in fashion) look rather ridiculous.  For more of Felicia's thoughts on this topic, click here.

The toddlers were creepy. Creepy enough for their own post.
I wore flowers on my hair like that... for HAlloween last year when I dressed up as Frida Kahlo!
Oh and I am very careful with headbands but do wear them occasionally.

HOLY PLASTIC DIAMOND. Those things are ridiculous! And that picture of the little beauty pageant girl in the blue towards the end... TOTALLY PHOTOSHOPPED! She does not look real!

Much Love,
