'band of Insiders

Hey, guess what’s even cooler than a headband? The chic girls who wear them, that’s what. Do you see these girls?! I mean, do you see them?! They actually walk around like this, they stand on sidewalks like this, they lean against walls and smolder like this. There were no stylists or fashion editors involved here – everyday is an editorial shoot for girls like this. All of these photos are from the massive worldwide database at Stylesight, and all were shot on the streets of New York recently – most within the past week. I love the one (far right) that says “Colombia” – she said she bought it at her local cheap-o/99 cent store. (They had one that said “Mexico” as well.) James (top, center photo), is sporting an amazing improvised headband made from a vintage necklace – small white ceramic beads that she had wrapped double. The effect is both strikingly modern and vintage/20’s flapper all in one look. My favorite however is probably the simple double bit of black elastic cord (top, left) – chicly understated yet bang-on-trend adventurous. I love to see girls being girls like this…the magpies of the Lower East Side. More please…

    Hey!…I love headbands too and I love the way each one of the girls you’ve found on the streets wearing one of those, make them look totally unique…buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut…I’m pretty sure that the headband of the girl on the right corner says Colombia…I was very happy to see that there in NY because I’m from Colombia & it looks reaaally cool!
