My obsession with head adornment knows no end.
I just love the drama they add to an outfit and to the person.
Especially to the girl who basically is 100% drama, inspiration and fun.
The headband is actually mine (an old Mimco thing that I picked up ages ago because I was totally taken by the bold and yet simple art deco circle detailing and flapper style silk fabric) but I don't think I could carry it off half as well as Steph does in this picture. Half is probably being far too kind. Actually...I'd make that some measly fraction like 1/10th or something paltry like that because her artistic jaunty bob looks ten million times better than her than on me (despite the totally liberating effect of hacking off all my hair post-break up...)
It was so her.
I think this shows how a girl can really make the piece with her personality. A look, the way she walks...it's all in the character. And Steph has never ceased to inspire me since the first day I met her in a cabin all the way back in year 8 camp and we swapped notes on our budding musical penchants for acoustic guitar rock and nouveau jazz (not in those terms exactly...but I'm going to pretend that we were that cool...no actually...she was...I was just trying to be...and am still trying to be)
Oh to be cool...
Maybe one day, Bec...maybe one day...
Then I could totally steal my headband back and make it look as good...
Who am I kidding...
