You guys. I was at J Crew this weekend (shocking, I know) and spotted a blast from the past hair accessory…the ponytail hair barrette! Have you seen these? I hadn’t but perhaps these made their debut months ago and I’m just now “that mom”who will grow increasingly more behind the fashion times? (Really? Is that going to really happen?!)
Regardless, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I picked one up and instantly was brought back to 1992 when I was a very bratty, pubescent (sorry mom) soon-to-be teenager sporting various versions of this infamous – er, I mean, famous – hair clip/barrette/ponytail holder. I specifically remember rocking the ponytail folded under (think makeshift bun) whilst using these clips.
And what? They are at J Crew now? Yeah, I’m in love. And yes, I bought two and will be wearing both on the reg. (Ashley Diestel, if you read my blog, that quote was for you). What do we think, will J Crew start selling banana clips soon? Travel sized AquaNet hair spray? Slap bracelets? I’d be fine with all three. #letsbehonest
