Would You Spend $200 on a Headband?
I should preface this post by stating that I'm an accessories addict.
I currently own a catalogue of pricey pieces and— though I adore every brooch, band and random clip in between— they tend to spend more time in my closet than in my hair. That said, the maximum I've ever been able to justify spending on my little "problem" is about $150. And the last time that happened, a friend made me begin a rehabilitation program (a.k.a. stop spending and start sporting what I already own).
Now, under the unflattering fluorescent light cast by our economy, even the most Amex-happy of addicts can see that such luxuries have to have more than just an enticing sparkle or celebrity endorsement. You'd think that brands would also understand this, but then there are always those that act as the exception to the rule.
Case in point: this recent collaboration between Mischa Barton and Stacey Lapidus. How they plan to sell such uninspired headbands for as much as $200 apiece is beyond me...
What's the most you've paid (or would pay) for a hair accessory?
