The Purple Chameleon {review + giveaway}


Get ready for some fabulous handmade hair accessories for all ages from The Purple Chameleon!




Gorgeous statement pieces without being in your face!  I love the splashy designs, chic and fashion forward, with color combinations that will bring your wardrobe up a couple notches!  These babies turn any outfit into a masterpiece!  I'm not talking run of the mill, everybody's making 'em -- these babies are original.  100% a style of their own!


Not just for women either!  These look great on kiddos of all ages, perfect for a photo shoot or a day out!!  Or, if you're like us, a day on the ranch!  For us, every day is an opportunity to glam up a bit!!  



I must chat about the fabulous Christina, the creator of these pretties.  She's a true artist, and these are quality pieces she creates!  Hand sewn jewels and adornments, gorgeous fabric, and get this -- she takes custom orders!  Check out her facebook page, where her fans simply upload a picture of their outfit, and Christina whips up something perfect to set it off!


There's a little bit for everyone.  If you're not crazy about bold statement headbands, she has a line of headbands that are a little simpler, but still packs such gorgeous touches!  {check out the netting!!}





Check out this pretty!!  I love the roughed up look, the stitching, and the oh so perfect rosettes!!   Plus, who doesn't love polka dots?





Annnnnddddd... the only problem with it?  The struggle to have a turn to wear it!  My sweet Ella decided that it was the perfect crown to her furry white Barbie dress.  :)   Haha!  But we do love it, and it's versatile {it fits the 3 girly heads in our house because of its tie back!} and obviously, it's so much fun!


Guess what?  Sweet Christina has offered up a $20 gift code for The Purple Chameleon!  YAY!!!
