the urban turban

i remember watching leelee sobieski aka aldys martin aka "alpo" from never been kissed and wondering why they gave her such a rocking head wrap when they wanted her to look geeky. alpo was just ahead of her time i guess.


last summer i saw the PRADA turban in person.
'twas amazing.
for how obsessed i was with it, i am surprised at
myself for not making myself one sooner.



well, i finally scooted over to the fabric store, got some scraps and some elastic and voila....

small, and large, and if you're too lazy to sew, just tie a knot in it

VERRRRRRy cute! I'm glad you found some time in between all your work and school to do a creative stint in the sewing room!

I'm also glad you don't pair your headwrap with the mini-- though you have the legs for it!

i've tried a few on and i can't get them to look right. when you are wearing your hair down do you just set them over it or do you pull some hair through? i know that is a weird question but i really like them and i want it to work for my life.

$283. SLC TO NYC.
sept. 7 i think
obviously we dont have to go those dates, but I figure maybe aug,sept??? that way it would give us poor peeps to save a little cash for some amazing shopping.

Kimberly Ngarupe said...

Does Mary Kate's wrap come with a tin-foil compartment to smoke her meth? Such a great appetite suppresant.
