Vintage Rose Wraps Review & $100 Gift Certificate Giveaway! Ends 4/4

Vintage Rose Wraps is a mom-owned business run by two fabulous sisters, Katie and Ginny. Together they run a successful shop, selling their handmade headbands and belts that have a uniquely vintage, hip, and totally chic style that you will fall in love with! 

I try to be a fashionista, but it's hard when my clothes are quite plain jane and sometimes I think I just lack some good fashion sense. It's much easier for me to accessorize than find something cute to wear for some reason! So I'm thrilled to tell you all about the items I received! The lovely ladies at Vintage Rose Wraps were very generous to allow me to pick my review pieces! I chose 3 headbands and one of their adorable belts.
I must say, I had such a hard time narrowing down my choices and at one point had over 20 items in my shopping cart! My best advice would be to take a few of your favorite tops or clothing pieces from your wardrobe, and find the perfect headband or belt that coordinates with it. Doing this will help you narrow down your options immensely. You can even shop by band color, rose color, or band style too. 

After I looked through my closet, I decided to go with 3 pretty different headbands. I need to make some fresh, new looks and these will help me do it for sure. The Modern Millie pink rose headband will go with any top that is black, lime green, gray, white, pink, or many variations of those colors. I also LOVE anything with a pink/gray combo. Add the fact that it's a damask print and I'll totally there! I chose the Charlotte Classic with the blue rose since it really screamed "Spring!" to me and the yellow is a beautiful color that will tie in to all sorts of other colors. Lastly, I chose the Best Selling Black Teal because I tend to wear a lot of black, especially if go out to dinner in the evening. I wanted something that would bring a little color, but not overwhelm my head! I think it's perfect, and will be getting lots of wear.
Here is my beautiful sister who modeled the 3 headbands for me so I could get some good photos (seriously, taking photos of your own head is really hard!). You can just see the quality and beautiful construction of the headbands! They are very well made with amazing color combinations that you will definitely find one to go with every outfit. Not only that, but these headbands are FUN, and will put a smile on your face when you go from drab to fab! :)

Now on to the details. I like how the flower is somewhat flat and understated compared to other similar headbands I've seen before. The flower is sewn a little offset from the middle so you can wear the headband as shown but have equal lengths to tie in the back - very smart design! I love the way it looks in the back when it's tied. It looks so cute! You can also tuck in the ends and hide them if you wish. The headbands are also super light weight, comfortable, and don't constrict your head unless you tie the ends too tight of course. They stay put on your head pretty well, and probably aren't going to slip off too easily in the middle of your day (hasn't happened yet!).

Next up is the Cream Damask Eggplant Belt I received. I love, love, love this belt! I'm excited to wear it on the next date with my husband! It totally shows off my waist and gives just a plain black top a pop of design and style. It's destined to become my favorite new accessory, I'm totally sure. It really adds a whole new dimension to my current "look"!

It features 2 metal D rings to slip the end through. You can wear the end out or tuck it under the belt and wrap it around your back like I did in the photo here. I have also worn it around my hips at an angle with a tunic and loved how the short tail looked too. The belt is thicker than the headbands and is double-sided for sturdiness -- fabulous quality that is so professional, I must say.

The one and only part of the belt that I wish was a bit different is how the side that is not sewn down sort of flaps outward and doesn't completely lay flat against the body. A quick fix for me was just a tiny little safety pin to hold it down once I had adjusted the belt to where I wanted it. Although this isn't ideal, I was trying to figure out how it could be design differently and couldn't think of a way to keep it down and still hide the metal D rings. I still love this belt and would definitely recommend getting one (or more!) as a fun new accessory to your wardrobe!

I pretty much adore all of the headbands! Among my most favorite favorites are the:
Asian Influence, Best Selling Black & Red and the Black & Teal, Black-eyed Pea, Cheetah Black, Gray Floral Pink, and English Toffee.

The belts are gorgeous too! They require a lot more thought to determine which would work well with various outfits I have - or maybe I might come up a color combo for a dress that would really come alive with the right belt!

Thank you so much for this authentically thoughtful and generous giveaway!
