My Joan Crawford Moment: Bringing Back the Turban


My fashion sense continues to get more eccentric, but I've thrown caution to the wind. Perhaps it's all the old movies I watch. Those ladies did not hold back for one second. They wore big, bold, head turning accessories, serious gowns, pounds of make-up and they had the guts to own it all. Yeah, it was Hollywood, but it all comes back to confidence, don't you think?

I live in Hawaii- where else can one parade around in pom pom bedecked caftans and Joan Crawford inspired turbans? People here wander around in swim trunks and slippahs (flip flops for you uninitiated) and little else, so I feel obliged to inch toward over the top, if only for my own entertainment. (Helpful fashion tip for those of you who would like to try this at home: You look less like a cancer patient if you let a bit of hair poke out the top of your turban!)


P.S) I bought my pom poms from the lovely Etsy supply shop Frog Feathers. I fell in love with her shabby rose trims too and ordered several yards- it's even prettier in person!

Yay, that is so groovy! Grey Gardens has made me a bit afraid of turbans. And batons, for that matter.
