Raising the Bar in Barrettes

with 4 Comments

Hello Letstalkstylers,

I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving. Like most Americans, it has taken me awhile to get back in the swing of things after an indulgent four day holiday weekend. We are all a little wiser, a little fatter, a little broker, and a little more lucid now that the tryptophan has finally left our systems.

I went through my fashion file of Ask Sammy queries and found a good one, so without any further ado, let's get to it.

Hi Sammy,

What are some cute hair accessories that I can wear for the holidays that don't look like a little girl should wear them?

Thank you

Dear Ginny,

I understand your holiday headwear predicament. You want a little sparkle without all of the bows, ribbons and festive accoutrements that might come off like a kindergarten arts and crafts project on your head.

You're in luck. I just holiday happened upon these adorable Holiday Barrettes from Kate Spade that showcase three holiday phrases: "ooh la la", "cha cha, cha" and "pop, fizz, clink" in different fab fonts. They're extravagantly priced at $78, (compared to the Goody barrettes I get from the dollar store) but hey, you get three. Don't wear them all at the same time.

Extras: They'll make a great conversation piece at your office Christmas party and make an extra special gift considering the super cute packaging.

p.s. I loved you in the Harry Potter septology.



Having a fashion dilemma or crisis?

Need to know what top goes with what bottom?

Don't go it alone. Ask Sammy!
