Wedges: Shoe Carnival
Um, first of all, sorry for the inconsistent exposure on these pictures but it is hot as h-e-double hockey sticks and I did not want to take my pictures in the sun. I guess I need to do like Monkeyface and take my pictures in the AM when it's 80, not 90?
Anyway--I went to my very first H&M while I was in New York (with my boss no less), and it was an absolute riot. That place is ridiculous with its loud music and fast fashion and tiny sizes and chances are good I'd never fit into any clothing they offered. HOWEVER. There was a corner dedicated specifically to accessories--the great equalizer among women!--and we rapidly began to drift toward it, and it was all downhill from there. $50 later and I was walking out of there with a boatload of headbands, six hair clips and a scarf.
My boss is a major enabler who talked me into buying this ridiculous headband which I really thought I'd never wear, but was $6 or something silly like that so why not. And then I wore it today and a style bomb went off--people young and old/male and female were coming up to me all over the place making both comments and compliments and staring at my head like Athena just sprouted out.
What do you guys think? I really like it and plan to wear it again but I know fascinators aren't for everyone. Is this thing a dud? Should I be moving on?
