The other night I was reading the January 2015 edition of Essence magazine when I saw something that made me pause. On page 13 in the section about style, I saw a woman wearing a floral appliqué headband a.k.a. a fancy headband.
It dawned on me that I just bought one that looks very similar to it. Sure enough, I take my headband out of the bag that had been sitting on my kitchen counter for a few days and they are very similar.
Isn’t that crazy?
I literally bought it because 1. I thought it’s cute and 2. It was on clearance for you ready…..$4!!!! Yes, a mere $4 from Wal-Mart.
The one featured in the magazine is $35, which is a bit much for a headband in my frugal opinion. I just giggled when I saw it because it was a total happenstance that I bought something on trend, according to Essence, but mine was a total steal.
There’s nothing like being fly AND frugal.
