Winter Ruins Outfits- Product Review

So six more weeks of winter huh? Or four-ish by now. I have my regular outfit posts, but the thing I cannot show you is the multitude of layers I have to wear on top to keep warm. And let me tell you, I have tried to research ways to look cute in the winter. Even my favourite bloggers don’t have the answers for me. People look cute, but then you go outside in ridiculous wind and blowing snow and you realize that a thin jacket with a bare neck and no hat is just not going to cut it. At this point, I have given up. Winter is a patchwork quilt of mittens and scarves, and so out I trek in a puffy coat and actual winter boots. And this super cute headband.


I have a friend who runs her own knitting company based in Montreal, Quebec. Darien Hamedani Knitting offers different types of hats, scarves, headbands, and as of recently, mittens as well. Check out the Facebook page, and you can enquire about the prices. I opted for the headband because I thought it would be the perfect solution for my winter chill. I have been doing my hair for real and instead of covering it up with a hat, the headband keeps my ears warm without ruining my hair. I chose white so it would go with any coloured scarf I decided to wear that day, but I was offered any coloured I wanted. All in all, I have been loving this headband. It feels so good to give to small businesses. I am considering getting a scarf to add to my collection. Everything is very well priced, and knowing it came from someone who values quality it is even better. Plus, it gave my sister and me a great excuse to go into a forest and take pictures.

If you’re looking for well-priced winter accessories to keep warm, I am suggesting checking out Darien’s work. It is of good quality, and it supports small business. It’s a win-win situation!
