Uncle Karl’s Vision
They say man cannot live on bread alone but we tend to disagree… As little girls, we grew up on French baguettes in Belgium (and waffles, too) and now, as adults, we’re into Fendi’s fashion version (after all, calories do count these days!) which celebrated it fifteenth birthday last month. This iconic purse was honored all over the world with celebrity-filled parties, a sketch by Karl Lagerfeld and even a book.

Here’s another wonderful post from our intrepid 12-year-old fashionista!
In case you have not noticed, floral accessories are extremely “in” this year. Notice that I did not use the word “season”. That is because florals have been “in” for SEASONS! They got lucky, you could say. Everyone knew that the 70’s GoGo boots were never going to work forever.
Forever 21 - Haute Rosette Headband
I am going to focus this entry on FLORAL HAIR ACCESSORIES. Personally, I think a woman or girl can never have enough of these. These simple beauties can transform a boring, bland outfit into one that is unique and eye-catching. Have nothing to wear? Just put on a black tee with a pair of dark wash jeans…add a flower accessory, and voila! You have a fashion statement. Don’t be shy! You might think that you have a head that doesn’t please the headband; but, I will tell you that there is a flower for everyone.
Anthropologie - From A Seed Clip
Here’s the “heads-up” on some favorites:
Anthropologie - Florist's Pick Clip
Forever 21 - Mesh Flower Headband
Nordstrom - Tasha Fluttering Flower Headband
Forever 21 - Lacquered Flower Clip
And here are some celebrities showing off their “flower power”:
Fabulous Choice, Rihanna!
An Amazing, Creative One-of-a-Kinder!
So you see, there are many different flower choices, each as unique and special as the person who wears them. Wearing floral hair accessories always make me feel confident, “fashion forward,” and “heads above the rest”. (Which is funny since I am only 4’9″!!)
Have fun picking yours !!!!
