Fashionable, elegant, and sexy—these are only some of the words that describe a feather boa. Isadora Duncan, Mae West, Billy Graham, and Elton John are just some of the many famous personalities known for their use of feather boas. If you will be going to a special occasion, say an elegant party, you can be flashy and elegant as these people by wrapping around your neck a feather boa.
However, wearing a feather boa is not like wearing a t-shirt. It’s not for everyday use, unless you want to walk on the streets being so fashionable. Want your own feather boa? Below is the buying guide for wise and trendy feather boa shopping:
Set your budget for a feather boa. How much are you willing to spend for a feather boa? Since you will only be using the feather boa for a few times, maybe a cheap one is already okay. But if the occasion is worthy an expensive tag price, then be it.
There are many factors that determine a feather boa’s price: the length, the diameter, the color, and the material. A feather boa can be more expensive if it is longer and bigger. A feather boa with two or three colors is more expensive also compared with a one-color feather boa. The material used also matters to the price. Feather boas made out of authentic feathers like that of ostrich or turkey are more expensive than those made out of fake feathers.
To give you an idea, the feather boa price can range from about $3 to as much as $40.
