The headband




So this is the headband. I put it on. I went to Clay with a big smile on my face and said, "Okay...tell me the truth- do I look like a fool?" And he so politely and shyly said, "Yeah...you kinda do"...I said in a little mouse-ish voice, "Well you just probably haven't seen things like this before"...I can't even look him in the eyes...he says, "Well it probably just needs a thicker band, there's barely anything there...if it were thicker, like a real headband, I'm sure it'd look good."

So. I need to know. I made this poll, so you could annonymously tell me the TRUTH and not feel ashamed or bad about telling the truth. This way, I can look good...and not embarrass myself...or give myself a high five for knowing this is the bomb.com. Alright...VOTE!

What's your opinion on the headband?

OH MY GOSH- ok- Sorry Clay- but boys just don't know what's in fashion for girls. Maybe for themselves, but not for girls. When I saw this I freaked out and squealed- it looks so good- I have seen the same look in forever 21- it is amazing- and I would have never thought to make it!- I am so impressed wiht it- and impressed that you even thought of it!- And as soon as I saw it I also thought- I knwo Clay hates this- and Mike woudl think the SAME thing. Mike hates trendy things- and he only likes them right before they go out of style, when he's finally used to them and has seen it on everyone. MEN!

You are such a cutie! I just seem to have a more interesting life because I am unmarried and fill that space with a million things. lol oh and I try to make people laugh, but sometimes I feel that it doesn't get across the same way in the written word! :O :)
I like the headband, but I would do a thicker band. ;) I am totally on a flower in the hair thing lately!

Ok, I can't just vote one way or another- 'cause it really just depends. It's very cute. But it's one of those "out there, LOUD" fashions, that most people will think looks freakish- unless they're especially stylish. I LOVE the way you're WEARING the headband. I want to do that. So I think if yyou want to wear it safely, where it with a small flower. I think you'll get a lot less wierd looks that way. Also, I think it just needs to be worn with a particular outfit. Like a BOLD outfit. So it's REALLY apart of the WHOLE ensemble. Good luck. I would love to hear if you actually wear it in public.

This is blunt, but I think a thicker band would be BAD. It's going across your face. I've ONLY seen it small, like the one you have on. But, really I'm just not up on these things anymore. I'm sure you'd know a lot more than me. Good luck.

Love it exactly the way it is. I've only seen in places like Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, etc. Way hip. I definitely would NOT make the bad thicker. Defeats the purpose. I think it's beyond stylish. I havne't seen anyone in real life wear it, but if I didn't know you and saw you out and about, I'd probably have a hard time not staring at you because I'd know you were really hip and I'd try to copy what you were doing. I love it.

And Clay not liking it....Shad would be the same. Maybe just wear it if you're out with girlfriends...if that ever happens. Did you ask McKayla?

Emily said...

Looks cute to me! I'm a smaller flower kind of girl, but if you like it, go for it...it's all about the confidence.

I love the headband.. Makayla and her friend Alex had one on last weekend and they are so cute. Of course most guys thought they were dorky, but what do they know about fashion. Did you make it or buy it. I would like to make a few for Makayla. Have a great day from the candy angel. I wish I had one for myself.

Styling girl really, and what do men know really? I am an old gal, but I think it's pretty neat. So go figure, I vote you wear it and see how many compliments you receive? Looks really great on YOU. I love you and I pray you are getting warmer. Hugs grams

Just to let you know- 1 of the votes saying you look like a fool is from MIKE- so you can discount that one

I made a comment before anyone else, where did it go? I said that I often was the first one to wear new trends when I was younger. Men don't know anything about fashion. I love the flower just the way it is. I agree with Lizzie, wear it and everyone will think, "oh thats whats cool now". Love you!!!

Cute Danielle. It reminds me of the flappers in the twenties. Love you. Enjoyed being with you this morning and already miss you.

Jenni said...

I viewed the results of the poll. and who are these jokers that are saying they agree with clay? Its adorable. I'd pay you to make me one. I love it!

you go girl

Lizzie said...

It's me again. I cannot believe the people who put they agree with Clay. Seriously. How many times did Clay vote? And Mike. Don't believe those results.

Anyhow, I'm ready for another post from you. I really liked your NY goal to post everyday. Maybe, every other day?? Please? = ) Love you.
