Uhhhh no. This is called culture appropriation and it's not ok. It's basically racism. I usually love all your looks, I really do, but this isn't ok. Wearing a headdress like that is not. ok. You can't take someone's culture and turn it into a fashion statement, it's wrong and racist. Everyone's probably going to get really mad at me for saying this but it had to be said. Culture appropriation is not right and awareness really needs to be spread. I'm really sorry to act like such a stuck up debbie downer, but this sort of thing seriously has to stop.

Dear Sara, I respectfully disagree of you. Vini and I are brazilians and the brazilian indigenous culture is part of our culture as well. This is not appropriation of culture, even less racism. This is a celebration of diversity of brazilian culture. Japanese, european, arabic, indigenous, chinese, african...in my country we can see all this diversity living together!

Thanks for responding. I actually was not aware of where Vini was from, and I'll be the first to admit, I am not an expert of Brazilian indigenous culture. Headdresses are used wrongly in fashion so often nowadays I guess I immediately assumed the worst. My mistake! I think something that still worries me is the amount of commenters who are oblivious to the implications of culture appropriation and the situations in which it does apply. Anyway, thanks for the response, I was in the wrong and I'm glad someone called me out on it! x)
