Nothing tickles me more than a versatile piece I can wear everyday. Do I want to be boho chic today? Classic with a twist? Or rock goddess in training? I am dying to get my hands on one of these headbands, but holiday shopping (and that car thing...) has put a pretty little dent in my die hard fashion addict funds.
