Let me take you back in time a little to Dec. 31st, 2008. Michael and I were attending a fabulous New Year's Eve Party! The dress was semi-formal. Most everyone was wearing cocktail attire. As guests were filing in, I noticed one girl in particular. She was young and cute, and I was in love-with her headband! Her headband was magnificent! It was a normal headband with a jeweled fleur de lis attached. I was obsessed with this headband, so I made my way through the crowd to find out where I could purchase such a cute hair accessory. By Jan. 2nd, I was at the store ready to make my purchase!
The store was all out of the headbands, so they proceeded to order one for me. I stupidly did not ask the cost. I mean-It's a headband. How much can a headband really cost? I was thinking at most it would cost $50-$70. That is a little much for my budget, but oh how I loved this headband. She rang me up (you have to pay before they order) and told me my total-$110! $110 for a headband! I don't think so! I had her cancel the order, and I left the store without hope of ever owning a sparkly fleur de lis headband.
Fast forward to earlier this week, I was in Target with my friend and coworker, Heather. We love taking our lunch break browsing Target for shoes, clothes, or whatever we are in the mood for. That day I had accessories on the brain, so Heather and I headed over to look at the earrings when I spotted some really cute headbands. Better yet, I spotted a sparkly headband! I tried it on and fell in love. I was almost afraid to look at the price tag after the last sparkly headband incident, but I was pleasantly surprised to find this headband was only $9.99. I happily gave Target my money and went home with a great headband! I love it, and I can't wait to wear it the next time I need to add a little something to one of my dresses!!!
Here are a few pictures I took of the headband while I was getting dressed the other morning. No, I am not naked. I have on a strapless knit dress that I love to wear when I am getting ready. Sorry for the poor quality and my creepy eye in the first pic. I took these with my phone. What do you think? Thumbs up or thumbs down on the headband?
If you like the headband and want one for your very own, visit your local Target or you can also find it here.
