The Classic Hair Accessory







*Pearl headband: c/o GLITZY SECRETS

Black lace dress: TOPSHOP

*Crystal drop earrings: c/o LOLA AND GRACE 


To coincide with the release of the movie Grace of Monaco, I was given the opportunity to review one of these absolutely beautiful head pieces from Glitzy Secrets who have an amazing range of vintage inspired hair accessories, including this Pearl Headband which I chose. I know a lot of headbands are really flimsy and I got a huge shock with this one - the quality is literally amazing with the headband being sturdy and the pearls being firmly rooted into it. The headband itself is definitely one of the most eyecatching hair pieces I've owned and any one of Glitzy Secret's accessories would be perfect for proms, weddings or any special occassion really. I don't know about anyone else but I am obsessed with the earlier 1900 decades and this is just one of those kind pieces which makes me feel instantly glam - think Gatsby with a modern twist. Glitzy Secrets have also written a blog post about the wedding of Grace Kelly and you can read that here.

All in all I was so pleased with the headband and I'll definitely be wearing it for the next special occassion I attend.

p.s. I really suck at any hairstyle other than my usual basic bed head curls (as that is just how my hair is so really I can't even take credit for that!!) so apologies for the very messy and poor attempt at a different style ha!
