Wardrobe Wish List: Anthropologie’s Twinkle Headband
Are the employees at Starbucks beginning to memorize your order? Do you have under eye circles resembling black eyes? Might someone mistake you for a caveman if they happened to graze your leg?
Same here. And it’s not pretty.
It’s that time of the semester when all that skipped reading starts to catch up with us and we see more of the library then we do the outside world. Let’s just say I’ve resorted to flipping my socks inside out. I barely have time to eat, let alone sit in the laundry room for 2 hours duking it out for a dryer, only to find myself trekking back to my room with a pile full of wet clothes to hang dry over my door.
That being said, my fashion sense is screaming to get out, as I’ve locked it away for a couple weeks and invested instead in a couple new pairs of Pink sweats. And let’s not even start on my hair. When it gets washed, it definitely doesn’t get brushed, and in the morning I end up looking like Chewbacca and Medusa’s offspring. This is something a straightener can’t even begin to fix.
Which is why right now I am totally loving Anthropologie’s Twinkle Headband. At this point in the semester, it is literally a lifesaver.
Slip this badboy on and it will instantly transform my rat’s nest bun into a chic up-do. The headband is elegant and sophisticated, but casual enough to be acceptable head wear to class. What I love most is its antique look; the muted gold tones and metallic beaded accents give a sultry Grecian feel to even the simplest jeans and t-shirt combo.
What I love second most? It doesn’t make me feel like I’ve stuck my head into a wood vice. We’ve all worn those headbands that leave your temples throbbing with permanent indents above either ear. This headband is cloth and has an elastic band that fits snugly around the base of your head and stays in place without the migraine. Plus, it’s thick enough to conceal all those fly-aways and the bangs you’re trying to grow out for winter break.
Now when I get a last minute text to do a little bar hopping or grab dinner in the caf. I won’t hesitate, considering how many potential hookups I will chase away with my disheveled appearance. I can now quickly answer “see u in 5!”, slip on my twinkle headband, add a quick spritz of perfume on either wrist, and I’m out the door.
Yea it’s a little pricey at $38, but let’s be honest, a $5 headband from Claire’s doesn’t come with the booty-call saving abilities.
