I have a new obsession.
It began with a hairband about five years ago. Thin, black fabric, with white dotted lines round the edges.
It moved onto a thick, black plastic one [no longer with us]
They both stayed in a drawer for at least a year as I was afraid to wear them. I thought people would laugh; I didn't think I suited them. Then when I had about 8 inches cut from my hair into a pob I found the thick one was great to wear on holiday to scrape it all back.
I started buying more and I started wearing them quite a bit. Thin ones thick ones, black ones coloured ones, plain ones patterned ones, plastic ones fabric covered ones.
Then I saw one Passion for Fashion had bought and I loved it so I copied her and bought it too. This is it:
I couldn't wear it though. It looked so WRONG on my head - I have such a high forehead I looked bald! I even printed a photo of her wearing it from her blog and tried endlessly to wear it the same way she had [I still can't wear it like that >:] but in the end I threw it in a drawer and forgot about it.
And then somewhere, I don't know where from, just came this obsession with headbands like it. I started wearing it ALL the time and then headed back to the shop and bought others in different colours/styles and now I think I have a bit of a problem. I have way too many. This week alone, I have bought SEVEN headbands. Seven! Who needs seven! And I am pissed off because there was one I saw and I said to myself you do not need any more! You already have three in your basket! Leave it alone! So I did and I was proud of myself but then I got to the que and I got as far as the next in line to the till but it was no good because I'd already thought of how many outfits it would go with so I ran back and got it :] I also picked up another at the little section next to the tills as well. And I got home and went to try the one I ran back for one on - and it snapped! It bloody snapped the minute I went to put it over my head! And call me lazy but I just can't be bothered to go back and swap it :/
I bought a gorgeous one in River Island recently, bar far my favourite - I paid £7.99 but on the website it's £5.99? How does that work out.
My names [_______] and I'm a heaband-a-holic. :)
