How to dress up a plain Pashmina: with a feathered hair clip

A feather hair clip, tucked into the side of hijab, gives my plain pashmina instant-sass. Believe it or not (it is hard to tell from this pic) it looked good. Good enough for a few non-muslims in the shop to compliment the look. They weren't thrilled on my play around with a mini top-hat toy-hat but I thought it'd look cool with some tulle... LOL. But back to the hair clip---it looked good.

I've been wanting to do this but where do you get these things? I can only find them over here for like £75+ which is a fortune! I'm wanting to find lovely hijab accessories ~ pins and things! But to no avail.

P.S. Victoriantradingco.com has fantastic reproduction glam jewelry and pins/brooches. (also scarves and glooves etc) I just ordered three cameo brooches (#11115) for $40. They are 2" long.

If you're looking for a we bit of an "old fashioned" twist this is the company to haunt!

Great idea. Flowered hair ties (they usually have safety pins on the back) and embellished brooches work amazingly well too :)

Coffee Catholic: I find the best accessories on the racks in teen fashion stores---you know, the ones that sell the stuff we can't wear as hijab? Also places Monsoon Accessorize (in the U.K) I'd figure would be good [tad expensive---they went out of business here]. Topshop would be my first, out in the UK. I LOVE TopShop!!!!!

Laalaa: I love flower hair clips. I make my niqabs look less scary with them:D

RevertsScecret: Like hats, I think it all dpends on one's face shape. If one looks good with underscarves, sometimes they don't look good with side clips.

I look wretched in underscarves but I think the look looks amazing.
