Wearing a banana clip has been considered the worst of the 80’s, and wearing a bow is considered to be too girlie, but ladies wearing a hair clip from Alexandre de Paris or The Bow from Ella Gorbo is like accepting the scrunchie from Slip. I literally run around in my Slip scrunchie, and own several Alexandre de Paris hair clips.

One day I will own The Bow, that’s the only way to describe the beauty that is Ella Gorbo. The Bow is so beautiful, it reminds one of cake frosting, I just want to gobble it up, absorbing it’s beauty.

I remember my first time in Paris, running into Le Bon Marché, looking for the hair accessories department and feasting on Alexandre de Paris, the sales lady directed me to a sale table where I swooped up every piece, never mind that the colors were not my usual, I figured I would somehow make them work and I did. My sisters and I since, go back when in Paris, as far as to visit the shop on Saint Germain. The selection is different and purchasing Alexandre de Paris in the states is more expensive due to the sales tax.

Ladies, the banana clip and wearing a bow isn’t just for teens or little girls. Here’s to wearing adult hair accessories while running around chic.
