RED Hearts: Cute Feather Accessories

RED Hearts are guests posts on I Heart Daily from the authors of RED: Teenage girls in America write on what fires up their lives today. Today's RED Hearts post is from Cammi Henao, 17, of Chicago, Illinois, who writes about her penchant for Ke$ha and feathers:

Living in Chicago, being exposed to different styles and new fashions is a given. Lately, feathers have been very much “in," and necklaces, bracelets, headbands, keychains, even hair extensions, have really taken off. Personally, I dig the trend.

I’m also a devoted fan of Ke$ha, who happens to be a fellow friend of the feather. So which accessories have made my favorites list? If all goes well, I plan on layering and wearing all of the following to the Ke$ha concert here next week.

Seriously, I just bought this headband (Forever 21, $6) on Saturday, and it's super cute. The peacock feathers are layered with some other teal/turquoise ones, and it creates a really cool effect when the feathers peek out from the bottom and sides of your hair.

I bought Navajo Feather Earrings (Urban Outfitters, $24) and Tribal Feather Earrings (Urban Outfitters, $20, pictured) and I mix and match them all the time, which really grabs people’s attention! Urban Outfitters has a ton of different designs, and they're made really well, too. Pair a long feather with a short stud, or wear two different-colored feathers. Go wild!

This is my fave necklace (Forever 21, $6) for the way its feathers, as well as the charms, vary in color. It hangs really nicely and adds a kind of tribal touch to any outfit.

Now, what I consider the most exciting feather accessory and you may too: feather hair extensions (Do Hair Extensions, $10)! I haven't heard many people even talking about these, but my friend and I are incredibly excited to place our order. And here's a video showing you how to put them in your hair, and take them out.

Now, to see what flies with Ke$ha…
