SHE Wears: Sproos Accessories & Giveaway

For our third installment in the SHE Wears series we're thrilled to be sharing our reviews of products received courtesy of Sproos! Launched just this past May, Sproos is a charming destination for hair accessories with sass, style and substance. Creator Melissa Matos, an art school graduate, decided to pursue her own business when she realized how difficult it is to find hair accessories with accessible style, realistic prices and enduring quality. "It's all about being practical and innovative," she says of Sproos. "You shouldn't have to buy a whole new outfit to feel you have variety in your wardrobe. Adding subtle or vibrant accessories to your clothes can make all the difference." You can read more about Melissa and Sproos over here.

What Jenmarie Wore:

Top/Lace Cardigan: Target
Maxi Skirt: Kohl's
Flats: Shoe shop in the mall
Headband: Pearls of Wisdom Stretch Headband c/o Sproos
XOXO Bag: DD'S Discounts

I am very excited about my new Pearl Headband and love the way it looks against my dark brown hair! I am very pleased with the quality and the fit. I wondered at first if the pearls would bother my scalp but I was proved wrong as it's very comfortable! Before I took my photos I had a necklace on but I felt it blended too much with the headband and that it took away from it's beauty. I decided the headband did the job perfectly on it's own. It was the only accessory I needed!

My lace cardigan you've seen before back in November in this post. It's one of my favorite lace pieces. This is the first time I paired it with this skirt which I purchased years ago before maxis made their comeback. Mixing pieces with others you wouldn't normally think of pairing together is a fun experience and the results are sometimes surprisingly positive. As I ran my errands for the day I had the feeling of a relaxed elegance and I have my pearl headband to thank for inspiring this outfit. Thank you again Melissa for sharing your beautiful products with us!

What Casee Marie Wore:
Sheer skirt (worn as a dress): Sparkle and Fade
Scarf (worn as a shirt): gifted
Cardigan: Leo & Nicole
Necklace: gifted
Earrings and bag: White House Black Market
Shoes: MaddenGirl
Bow: Cheetah's Roar Bow Clip c/o Sproos

When I first saw this bespeckled bow I knew the possibilities would be endless; its color is the perfect sort of tan to go with anything - and what outfit wouldn't benefit from a punch of animal print? I also love that the back has both a clip and pin, making it a dual accessory. It can be a barrette or a brooch in a snap! It's also wonderful quality, lightweight enough that you don't even feel it in your hair but without being flimsy. It's very well made, which I really appreciate. Keep an eye on our Facebook page because I'll be sharing some of the other ways I've worn it!

As for the rest of the outfit, this scarf-as-a-shirt look is something I picked up recently from the lovely Tanesha of Girl With Curves. I can't get enough of the trick, and with the amount of scarves I have I feel like I doubled my wardrobe. The sheer skirt is actually a maxi skirt but it only falls to just below my calves, making it a somewhat awkward length, so I decided to wear it instead as a dress. I do this a lot with my maxi skirts, and I do believe it was Ashley of Ashley4Emergy who got me started on it. I just love it when bloggers share their tips for reworking pieces!
