Hair Accessories: How Much is Too Much?

Jennifer Ouellette satin and feather headband When it comes to women and fashion, there are simply no words to describe a feeling a woman gets when her eyes fixate on the perfect item that she knows will compliment her style and wardrobe to a T. There is definite swooning involved and even some cases of putting a store’s number on the speed dial to check on the price of the item weekly–I’m pretty much the same way when it comes to bath and body products.

The world of high fashion, as seen through the eyes of top fashion magazines, sometimes baffle me. I can’t necessarily get into the big feathers, the high and sometimes obnoxious collars, the crazy skirts and the list can really go on for a while here. And in the eyes of high fashion, Barneys New York has put together some items that make me look at that item then at the price and wonder to myself “Why?” or “For what?”

And that is exactly what happened when I stumbled across the Jennifer Ouellette Satin & Feather Knot Headband.

This $85 hair accessory would compliment what, exactly? The matching white feathered boa and matching skirt you have tucked away in the back of your closet waiting for that one, special occasion? This headband comes in the black and white shown here and also dark green and black.

What do you think of the satin and feather headband, and maybe more importantly, the price?

  1. I think the headband is perfect, but it would require a good match of wardrobe. But I don’t think I would buy that just for the sake of fashion. It’s quite expensive and I wouldn’t be able to wear that everyday.
