Headscarves: My latest find to dress up that do!

Ever wanted to dress up a simple updo or ponytail – perhaps there isn’t enough time to do something fancy? I came across a super cute accessory on Etsy recently. Big, fun headscarves in a variety of prints that go from cutesy to retro chic.

Made by Oh Honey Hush, these hair bow ties and bandanas can be tied into a big bow on top, tied into a neat little knot or tied in back to show off more of the print.  What I like about them is that there’s a little more material to work with than the average square bandana or scarf so you can make the look a little exaggerated. Plus, the material is a nice substantial canvas so it stays put, unlike a silky scarf. There are so many colors and styles, it’s really hard to choose – – and let’s just say they had me at the comic book and cherry prints! But at only $12, there’s no reason to limit yourself. So go on honey!

Do what you do,

Book Purses: Dress Smart!

What is it about purses – why can’t us girls get enough of them? There are just so many cute ways to carry your stuff! Actress Michelle Williams recently drew attention on the red carpet for making a fashion statement with an unusual handbag – a book purse.

See Michelle’s look.

While hers was from designer Olypia Le Tan, which sells for over 1K, the crafty people on Etsy have made some for you for a fraction of the fancy designer cost, like this one I found from SpoonfulOfChocolate:

If you’re feeling crafty, you can make your own. It’s a great way to recycle an unused or vintage book. Learn how by watching a handy video on YouTube:

Well, I for one have very little time for crafts so I’ll stick to shopping! Be sure to check out all of SpoonfulOfChocolate’s book purses.

It’s one sure way to flaunt your literary prowess and green leanings, while being ever-so-fashionable.

It’s in the bag,
