I have debated posting about this for the past few weeks, yet have decided to take the plunge. I am not the kind of girl to hop of the trend wagon every time it comes around. And quite honestly, I would never have done what I have done...in fact I probably would have just rolled my eyes...which actually I have...and still I was persuaded. Who persuaded me? My husband. Oh yeah, he wanted his wife to have feathers in her hair. My initial reaction was, "Um, what? Like those would even go with my silk shirts." Insert foot into mouth, since I have now had feathers in my hair for almost a month. When it comes to being married, you must pick and choose your battles. This was one battle that I gave up with out even firing a shot. Luckily, I have a fly-fisherman husband who ties his own flies and who very generously put together a little feather arrangement and placed them in my hair. And even more fortunately he was sweet enough to do an excellent job of hiding them for me. (Only one person has actually questioned me after seeing a fleck of red in my hair while out in the sun.)
I seriously cannot decide if this trend is more Hippie or Indian. Celebs and fans alike are sporting these in all shapes and forms. What do you think? As 15-year-old Laura would say, "Totes not my style, but I'm rockin' them."
I liked these two feather pictures, so I had to post them.
Though I would much prefer feathers like these...
I am opting to be trendy...at least for a little while. Questions? Comments? Snide remarks? What do you think, are you going to join the bird world?
