A Thank You, a Milestone, and Petite Fashion Challenge #21: The Fashionators

First of all, I want to say THANK YOU so much to all my readers for supporting this blog for the last year. It has been a wonderful experience, and it wouldn't have been possible without your readership and support! This is the 100th post on Hello, Framboise!, and I'm looking forward to sharing many more with you.

For this Petite Fashion Challenge, the lovely KTR asked us to "create an outfit for an occasion (of your choice: attending a wedding, in a wedding, a holiday party, Kentucky Derby, etc.) and utilize a headpiece as the focal point to make a “fashionator” statement. This headpiece can be a fascinator, a fancy headband, a delicate flower or a big hat. Feel free to get as creative as you like!"




Headband: Nordstrom (similar here) | Dress: 5-7-9 (So old, I know! Find a cute one that's not 10+ years old here) | Coat: Gap (old, similar here) | Shoes: Jessica Simpson (similar here) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (on sale via Bluefly!) | Bracelets: Tiffany, Swarovski, F21

While I didn't have a full-fledged fascinator around the house, I thought this pretty crystal headband jazzed up this holiday party ensemble nicely. I actually rediscovered this dress as I was rummaging through my closet looking for a suitable headpiece, and I realized that the burgundy velvet was as on-trend now as it was when I wore it to a high school homecoming dance. I love when "everything old is new again."

  2. I love headbands! My problem is I can't find a pretty one that does not cause pain behind my earbone after wearing it for a little bit. I think you look absolutely gorgeous in this outfit. Anything old can be made new indeed depends how you style it :)

    1. I've found that the thinner headbands work better for me, but it's important to test them and make sure they're not too tight around the ears. This headband is very comfy, but I've definitely experienced what you're talking about.

      Thank you so much for your support--I appreciate it so much!

  3. You look absolutely gorgeous! Stunning no less. I personally feel that I look strange in a headband, but I adore it on others! This is the perfect look for a special event :)

  8. Coat seems to ran a bit small, the lining seems to make the sleeves snug but its beautiful and lovely shoes.

  14. Elegant headband! I love collecting headbands, but every time I put them on my hair at the top immediately loses its volume...any tips?
