From here on out my Saturdays are devoted to college football and Sundays are reserved for Saints games.

My go-to Sunday accessory, a Deepa Gurnani headband in the classic black and gold combo.

Crown Headbands…

While packing for my New Orleans trip, i.e. shopping at Urban Outfitters, I found this amazing Deepa Gurnani headband to add to my ever-growing headband collection.

I have several of his pieces and am absolutely obsessed.  A friend of mine owns a boutique that retails his headbands and jewelry and told me he started by doing couture beadwork for Alexander McQueen and Fendi, etc.

Thankfully mine was only $32.

I figure this will be perfect for Mardi Gras.

As The Boyfriend said, “put on your princess hat and let’s go”.

Geography & Headbands…

Yesterday.

Even thinking about it gives me a headache.  I began my day trying to plan some travel in the south, and finally five hours later looked up from my giant map, cross eyed and agitated.  Don’t get me wrong, I love to travel.  Just not by car.  Or when I have to plan it myself.

Geography is not my thing.

Seeing as it was only 2:30 and it didn’t seem like a proper time to open wine (and no one was available to come over), I decided I needed a little retail therapy.

While in college my freshman year, I started dating a fun new guy and found my geography class relegated to the back burner.  They could have told me Arizona was in Dubai for all I cared.  And (fortunately) the relationship lasted only as long as the class but (unfortunately) I still don’t know where all the states are.

So even though geography is not my thing, headbands are.

I can easily say I will never have enough headbands.  Especially gorgeous vintage looking headbands.  And, although I’m a jewelry designer, apparently I also needed some jewels.  And a manicure.

Thank you Anthro.   While you break my bank account, you save my sanity.

So for now, I’m headed to Mississippi.  I think that’s off to the right.  Hopefully there is an Anthropologie there.

Chic Yoga Gear…

I have been (slowly) working yoga and pilates back into my work-out routine.  And since my current work-out wardrobe consists of all black, I usually end up looking like a ninja.

All that’s about to change.

 

I found this great boutique featuring these little headbands, perfect for yoga.  Different colors and fabrics, even throw on with a ballet bun for a cute date night accessory.

  

I am throwing an impromptu cocktail party Friday and am thinking the black one, ballet bun and big fake lashes.

Go check out all of their cute designs.  Headbands, adorable heart shaped backless tees, etc.
