I want to introduce you to a new brand, Monalda4, a fab headband line founded by Bonnie Friedman. Bonnie Friedman, an ex-editor has a great fashion pedigree. She was the Senior Market Editor in the Fashion Department of Out Magazine and Out Traveler and then became the Fashion Editor of Maxim Magazine. She has traveled the world extensively and is deeply in touch with global trends and lends that specific eye to her amazing designs at Monalda4.
I wrote about headbands all the way back in December, before I found Monalda4, as like many predicted that they would be a big spring trend. Well, I don't know if you were our enjoying the day on Saturday, but if you were, I bet you would have noticed the abundance of fab headwear adorning the locks of many. They really are this season's jewelry and at affordable prices should become a fashion staple in your wardrobe.
Monalda4's headbands are some of the best I have seen...beautifully adorned with bold, dramatic flowers or sweetly embellished with tiny florets, they are feminine and soft. I also love the fact that they are not overdesigned. I don't know about you, but I don't really need a bird growing out of my head. That said, a perfectly placed little bloom is just the statement I want to make.
If you are a bit headband shy, as you associate them with little girls, I promise you they can look super chic and sophisticated on any woman. Of course, it is as always, in the execution. Don't use them to pull your hair back as this is quintessential 10 year old. Instead, let you lush hair flow and simply use the Monalda4 headbands to adorn your mane. I also, love them when used on hair pulled back in a loose, messy updo (very ballerina-esque). Now remember if you dress up your hair, don't also do bold jewelry...their is nothing worse than accessory overkill!!!
Monalda4 is the only headwear line at the Retail Therapy at 515 East 72nd Street/Miraval Living event, so after you get your makeup done at Lancome|The Boutique, run over to Monalda4 to finish you look with their perfect headbands!!! Happy shopping...
