Cute or Creepy? Bundle MacLaren Macaw Headband


I know this Bundle MacLaren parrot headband is more than a little ridiculous, but actually, there's something about it that I think is pretty splendid. It's a parrot, that you wear on your head!

Now, I wouldn't actually wear this. But I do know some people who would be able to perch this little guy on their head without looking like a damn fool, and I imagine I'd be a little bit envious of them. They're my friends who can wear seventeen different shades of green at any one time and not look stupid. Even when eight of those shades are in a poncho. They're brilliant.

"Please don't shit on my head. Oh, it's fine, you're a hat."

So I'm torn. I really like the design, I think it's a really fun piece, I just wouldn't wear it. I also like the price - it's £54. The rest of Bundle MacLaren's millinery isn't quite as out there - I really like this feather headpiece, and this bright purple hat. The prices are reasonable and beautifully crafted (and all available from Culture Label).

Still, none of the other pieces are quite as batshit crazy exciting as a parrot perched atop your head. What say you? Cute or creepy?

  1. Hello, yes, I love this. I really like ridiculous headpieces. I have two enormous feathered fascinators, and a hairclip with a bird on it. It's time for me to upgrade to Full Parrot.

    2. I probably wouldn't wear the parrot, but I'd wear the rose one. I'd love to be a Paloma Faith-type person who could plonk a parrot on their head before heading to Tesco, but alas, I'm not.
