Personal Shopper: Fantastic Fascinator-like Headbands for Simone's Sister

Simone writes: "Hi Outblush Lovelies,

Love your site! Outblush is part of my daily web browsing routine. It's a must for me. I've bought products that you all have suggested, and I'm always repinning the stuff you guys feature on Pinterest (<--my other obsession). I'm emailing you because I'm looking for a headpiece for my sweet little sister, who is my maid of honor for my upcoming September wedding. I definitely want her to stand out among the other bridesmaids, but I don't want her to wear a different dress. I found this great headpiece on Pinterest to serve as inspiration. While I do think its Fab! It's also kind of big, and I don't want the guest to be staring at my sisters head throughout the ceremony. LOL. I do want some of the attention, lol. So could you please help me find something similar and more affordable (its $275 eekss) that's not such a scene stealer?? I'd like to spend no more than $50. Thank you so much!!

Here is a link to the inspiration.

XO, Simone"

When we said we were obsessed with fascinators, we weren't lying. We know just how beautiful they are, and how much fun it would be to wear a gigantic one to a wedding. However, we also understand that others might not be fans of this super-stylish trend. (Who are these people you ask? Our relatives.) As a compromise, we found headbands, and when you let us know that you wanted one for your sister, we knew just where to look: Nordstrom. These are our favorites, but there are tons more to choose from - let us know which one you like the most!

1. Lux Extra Large Rose Headband (inspiration) ($275)
2. Tasha 'Glam Wow' Fascinator Headband ($38)

I believe a woman can never have enough little black dresses, as black is always chic and sexy. I'm not afraid to wear beautiful bright colors and keep things fun and fresh. If you're looking for the perfect pair of heels to complete your outfit, or need new bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and bangles, I'm your girl.

Zappos also has a ton of fascinators - these Nordstrom ones are gorgeous though!
