Wardrobe Wish List: Penelope Flower Lariat

[I want it, I need it, I can’t live without it. There are so many things on store shelves and racks right now that we want to take home and hang in our closets. Things that are so cute, everyone should know about them. We’ll share ‘em with you here (because we’re that nice), but as far as actually getting them goes….well, you’re on your own with that one.]

There’s something oddly bad-ass about wearing a headband that you actually wear on your head. It’s an oddly sexy combination of rock star style and hippy chic. Often seen on the likes of Nicole Richie and Mischa Barton, I LOVE how they look, but have yet to actually wear or buy one.

However, my most sincere desire to try the look started when I saw the Coach Penelope Flower Lariat on Selena Gomez in the December issue of Seventeen.

The lariat features seven different types of cut-out-leather flowers in shades of red, pink, and purple with metallic stitching and retails for $198. It’s also almost impossible to find online and sold out at many Coach retail stores. Sigh. Ban.Do and Stacey Lapidus have some VERY cute (and very pricy!) alternatives, featuring crystal, feathers, and braided details.

Not going to spend $200 on head gear? Me neither. (Hello, wardrobe WISH list!) Luckily for all of us, Forever 21 features some super cute on-the-head headbands at a fraction of the price. Perfect for non-commital college girls who still want to try out this look!
