Hair Bears: The Search for Life’s Little Magical Moments

It’s become a new thing where I find myself wearing something animal-related in my hair! Whether it be cat ears or now, teddy bear heads. I purchased these on Etsy and I absolutely love them! They’re made of felt and super squishy. πŸ»πŸ’•

I don’t know about y’all, but I’m always on the lookout for fashion inspiration, because it can pop up anywhere!! I was thinking about this topic lately. I remember back when I was in high school in the early 2000’s, there was a girl at school who would use an umbrella with a panda face on it, and it had ears on top. If I recall, it looked something like this:

She used it as a parasol with her goth-like outfits, and I’d see her walking around campus during lunch hour. It was the most magical thing everrrrr, and I’ve never forgotten it. She was like a ray of sunshine on an otherwise beige-and-cement-colored campus. Even all these years later in my thirties, it inspired me to embrace cute animals for accessorizing! (Perhaps I shall try to track down some panda head hair clips…hmmmm!) πŸ˜‰

Don’t you just love those little moments where someone inspires you, fashionably? I sure do. Sixteen years later, I still remember her and how she totally owned holding that panda parasol. It’s like a little flash of a moment in time where someone’s ensemble makes the world a little more magical, and in turn, you want to make the world a little more magical, too. πŸ’–βœ¨

Anyway, the black suspender dress I’m wearing in this first outfit is an old school uniform apron from the Soviet Union days. πŸ˜‹ The second dress is from Gowntown on Amazon! (I hemmed it up to a shorter length, so it’s been altered).

Because really, doesn’t life need a little more magic? A little more quirk? I’d definitely say yes. And it starts from something as simple as an umbrella, or an outfit, or something you put on your head. From there, we can make the world a little sunnier. β˜€οΈ

See ya next time!! πŸ’œ

  3. “is an old school uniform apron from the Soviet Union days.” Are you aware of how cool you are!?! πŸ˜„ And I totally approve of the animal themed hair clips. I might have caught your fever, because now I want to do it too πŸ’–

  4. Your new bear barrettes are adorable and complement the plaid and polka dots in your outfits perfectly!!! I absolutely love that a panda umbrella-wielding goth girl from high school is inspiring your style today, and you describe it all so beautifully: “It’s like a little flash of a moment in time where someone’s ensemble makes the world a little more magical, and in turn, you want to make the world a little more magical, too.” You, without a doubt, make the world a lot more magical with your fashion, quirkiness, and wonderfully witty words. I know that there are people out there who want to emulate your style too!!!
