(In my head, this post title is to be read to the tune of that 80s Olivia Newton-John classic, "Let's get JUDG-men-tal, JUDG-men-tal . . ." If that tremendous ditty is now stuck in your head, uh, you're welcome!)
At my senior age of thirty-one, I'm generally more likely to attempt a youthful appearance via
*Yes, I had such a past, and yes, a friend has put on a Fashion Fatwah on me if I get within 50 feet of a pair again.
The more preptastic amongst you may be shaking your heads in dismay at this, but even at my mistress du Alex P. Keaton peak, the traditional headband look was simply never my thing. And yet, this modern version, as ushered by Blair Waldorf and her faux UES crew, has caught my attention.
I'm starting to second-guess myself - a rare occurrence here at the Pretty, as longtime readers know - and find myself in need of a vote. What do we think, darlings - can this incarnation of the headband** be adult-appropriate, or am I teetering perilously close to romper territory?

**And not this twee over-the-forehead one, which, mostly to its association with She Who Shall Not Be Named, I won't acknowledge here.
"Feather Headband" ($7.99): Too much flair for me, but I think this look could be darling on the right woman. Problem is, as "Project Runway" fans will recall, a similar look was sported by favorite-contestant-turned-whiny hussy Kenley who mocked Fantasy GBFF Tim Gunn. I'm sure you can understand why I'm struggling here.
I'm also sure the crafty types amongst you could fashion something like this yourselves. For those like me, where the presence of a glue gun is likely indicative of criminal, not crafty, activity, I'll always feature the store-bought version.
Flower Double Headband ($7.99): Like the oragami style of this flower & the color, but is it too bow- (as opposed to Bo-) like?
Double Headband ($7.99): Now this, this I might be able to work. The double-strap is a new take on things, and this is simple & clean enough to please this Southern California girl.
Jurors, it's time for your verdict - am I guilty of watching too much CW? Or is this trend worthy of consideration by this thirty-one year old?
