Feather Head

Jacket, FANG. Tank, The Limited. Skirt, Newport News. Boots, Nine West. Bag, Payless. Earrings, gift. Headband, self-made.

It took no special skills to make this headband. I bought the feathered paddle as one piece, at Michael’s, for $5 or so. Then, I hotglued it to a brown, python-print headband I already owned. After I completed the project, I was leafing through an old Lucky magazine and found a very similar headband priced at $95. How silly.

I like how the whimsical headpiece lightens up an otherwise bland and office-appropriate outfit.

I love your feather accessories. This one looks relatively easy, but I would love to see a tutorial on how you've made your other accessories such as the hair clips.

I love the headband ! People are selling them on Etsy for $30.00 and more.
I am glad that I know now that I can make one myself much cheaper. Thanks for the tip.

"bland" is not the word I would choose for that outfit, even sans headband. I love it!

I've been wanting to get one of those too but the prices can be ridiculous. I like your thrifty solution!
