While watching the Grammys with Melissa on Sunday night, we both commented how it would suck to sit behind Lady Gaga. How could you see over that architectural headpiece? Worst seat in the house! Despite that, we do dig her head steez. But how do you get what's less dramatic than the Eiffel Tower, but more creative than a headband? The answer is: a fascinator, which is simply an intricate headpiece.
Here are three pieces that aren't over-the-top (in other words you can wear them to the movies without the person in back of you getting peeved).
1. Roseberry Plume, sweetgrassmill ($16, pictured). Delicate and whimsical, this bouncy plume clips into your hair with a barrette. You'll want to bob your head all day (but not too hard -- you'll get a headache).
2. Maggie, Fascinators NYC ($19). This ball of fluff made of ostrich features comes in tons of colors, so you can match it to any outfit. Wear it with your hair swept to the side, or at the nape of your neck with a low ponytail. Fluff = good.
3. Lavendermoon. You may not want to pay in pounds, or for the cross-Atlantic shipping, but these amazing fascinators are created in a little village in Scotland. I want all of them. Who has frequent flier miles to donate?
