I Wore A Turban…

What I wore: turban – vintage from Cheap Thrills, blazer – vintage, jeans – Banana Republic, heels – vintage

I mentioned here that I was a fan of turbans but had not yet tried one out. A few weeks later, I found a vintage one at my favorite shop in Fayetteville – Cheap Thrills. I must say, I got a few ‘complisults’ at work. People said things like, “only you would wear that”. Haha.

Who cares, that’s why I love fashion – the ability to experiment. I do realize I’m taking a risk by posting a photo of myself after brutally judging the attendees of the met ball. Oh well!

So now that you see me in a turban, would you wear one?

5 Days/5 Looks: Hanneli

Have you heard of Hanneli Mustaparta? Well, she’s a gorgeous & stylish model as well as an accomplished photographer and blogger. You can find her here. Obviously with the body of a model you can pull of almost anything but I really love her quirky choices (she’s fond of DIY turbans and CVS socks).

Would You Wear? {Turbans}

Women of the western world have been dabbling in turban-wear for quite a while. But, if you’re acquainted with the Man Repeller, you know that turbans are not one of the most attractive things you can wear (according to men…but who cares!). However, it is easy, fashionable and a fabulous way to disguise unwashed hair. Personally I love it but have not tried it. For some reason, I feel like it looks better with a tan (doesn’t everything?). PS – I discovered airbrush spray tanning. Life changer. I digress. What do you think of turbans? My final thought is that it takes a chic person to make the turban look chic.
