Here’s a trend I’d like to try: the jeweled headpiece. But I’m also totally terrified. Sometimes even a standard run-of-the-mill headband feels too over-the-top. And I don’t know why. It’s a totally baseless fear. I love accessories. I wear crazy jewelry and shoes and lipstick, but when it comes to a headpiece – the kind that actually drapes over your head and forehead, I fear I’ll look like a nut. Because you know, I don’t seem to fear wearing a tutu, leopard platforms, and skull jewelry. But the headpiece has been elusive to me so far. Have you ever been to one of those traveling Medieval or Renaissance fairs? The costumed sellers are always offering up these gorgeous and intricate chain headpieces, and every year I drag my husband to the local fair, feed him something fried, and try on every headpiece in the tent. I always come home empty-handed because I rationalize. I rationalize way too much. Still, I love the trend and really want to try it. Do note, there’s a bit of Cleopatra envy mixed in here as well.
Would you wear a chain or jeweled headpiece? Out in public?
