Review – Rocking Retro Feather Headbands and Fascinators
Again with the funky hair accessories! lol.. I can’t help it. My hair is short and I get bored! There’s only so much I can do… I have this new fascination with feather headbands and fascinators. At least I don’t go all crazy like SJP did here at the Sex and the City premiere!!! I think I’d rather take Drew Barrymore’s approach or even Solange’s. Urban Outfitters carries some feather hairpieces and so does Bebe but with an item like this, I would HATE to see somebody else wearing the same piece as me so…. to Etsy I went. Plus, they don’t seem to be made very well and the Bebe one is $79!!! Forever 21 even carries a couple feather pieces but let’s just say you get what you pay for with those… =/ I found Rocking Retro on Etsy a vintage inspired line thats specializes in hair pieces like these. She has a huge collection ranging from a nice accent piece to definite statement pieces so there’s surely something right up your alley. If not, she does welcome custom work. There is something in just about every price range. She is working on a pinup inspired summer line which I personally can’t wait for!! She has several collections each with a different feel to it including a gorgeous bridal collection for you bride to bes. I am reviewing a headband and a fascinator that I received from Rocking Retro. They were both beautifully well made and there was obviously time taken when designing and creating them. My pet peeve with headbands is that most of them give me a headache after an hour of wear.. ughhh what is the point of having a cool accessory if it hurts to wear it? Well this headband was very comfortable. The fascinator attaches to your hair with a plastic comb and it was actually very secure. It never felt like it was going to fall off and I had mine on all day. I am very happy with them and I got a ton of compliments! Here are some pics of the pieces. I actually took pictures of the fascinator worn two different ways so that you can see that there are different ways to wear it. Stay tuned for a giveaway of 2 of her pieces!!
