Over The Top

It's almost time to top off 2009 and say hello to 2010. Not only will this be a new year, but it will also be a new decade. So why not go all out this New Year's Eve? Funky statement hair accessories such as bow, flower, and feather headbands/hair clips were very dominant throughout 2009. Another statement headpiece has been hat headbands and hat hair clips. While these fun accessories have not been worn as much as the three former headpieces, they would still be perfect to wear while celebrating the end of the decade. If you are attending a party on New Year's Eve, there is no doubt that all eyes will be on you once you arrive in a hat headband or hair clip. Wearing one of these quirky accessories would also be a great conversation starter with that cute guy you'll be eying from across the room. Maybe it will even get you a kiss at the the stroke of midnight!

While these headbands and hair clips may be a little hard to pull off in a casual setting, as stated before, they would be nice for any New Year's Eve party. Even if you're not going to be attending any New Year's parties, you can still wear these funky accessories for hitting up clubs or bars. If you're planning ahead for next Halloween, I've got a great idea for a costume. Wear one of these hat headbands or hair clips with a fringe dress, a sequin purse, a pearl necklace, and a pair of pumps. I hope you enjoyed this post. I also hope everyone has a happy New Year!

Tiers Of Joy

Ruffles have been in style for quite some time now. With this trend as well as lace, floral prints, flower headbands, bow headbands, bow necklaces, bows, and polka dots, it's all about being proud of being a girl. So this post is going to be about another feminine trend: tiers. Tiers are a type of ruffle, but they have more of a layered look to them than regular ruffles generally do (think of tiers on a cake). Tiers are usually lined up in a row underneath each other. I personally love tiers. They're so girly and fun. They are also festive and decorative. Therefore, I thought they would be perfect to wear to any upcoming holiday parties you may be attending. These gorgeous tiered pieces would also be great presents to give any to female you know.

For a holiday party, wear a tiered dress with some liquid leggings, a shrug, a pair of high heeled pumps, a bow headband, and a bib necklace. To pull off a tiered dress in a more casual setting, pair it with some patterned tights, ballet flats, a cardigan sweater, hoop earrings and a cloche hat. To wear a tiered skirt to a holiday party, pair it with a sequined top, glittered tights, stillettos, some chandelier earrings and a flower headband. For a more casual setting, pair your tiered skirt with a colorblock top, a beret, some black leggings, over-the-knee boots, and a cuff bracelet. For wearing a tiered top to a holiday party, pair it with some satin pants, a bow necklace, a pair of high heels, and a flower hair clip. In a more causal environment, pair your tiered top with skinny jeans, slouch boots, some bangle bracelets, and a newsboy hat. Any of the tiered accessories can be worn with a lace dress and some textured tights for a dressy look or a tunic and jeggings for a casual look. Let me know if you have any other suggestions. Happy Holidays!
