Lucky Find: Scrunchies

I don't know when was the last time I wore scrunchies -- maybe when I was a little girl. Since highschool, I think I have preferred wearing plain black thin ponytails, or sometimes rubber bands. But cloth ponytails are better because they don't "eat" my hair.

Anyway, I read this blog about scrunchies in Jenni Epperson's blog, and saw the Wondergirls of the Nobody, Nobody but Chu (sorry!) fame wearing scrunchies . . . in their arms! :D

And because I am such a cheapie, and I don't want to spend more than P50 on hair ties, I said I'll be lucky if there will be scrunchies for sale, and luckier if I'll find scrunchies that fit my taste.

Boy, I was lucky. Because the thrift shop haven has a pile of scrunchies in their store for P5 each! I bought three -- in the safest colors, pink, black and grey. But will probably be back for more.

I have already transformed the black one into a headpiece... I'll show it to you one of these days when I have found a fitting headband to attach it to. And the pink one is perfect as an arm candy. The grey one, I still don't know how to use it. Maybe just as a scrunchie? (how creative) :D

By the way, the banner photo of the blog, is, yes, the pink scrunchie.
