I first spotted this gorgeous headband (top) at the Youngblood Designer Markets and now it is winging its way to my sister-in-law in the US. It is part of an amazing collection of headbands and alternative millinery by Sydney-based designer Jen McEvoy from South for the Summer.
Hand-fashioned from feathers and leather, these headbands are so cool and are quickly garnering a cult following, gracing the coifs of rockstars and hip teens alike. My friend Alischa has the Shelley band (bottom) which looks gorgeous against her fair hair. And I'm all about the purple Peggy feather band. Jen's headbands are a great edgy pick-up for an outfit that would also be perfect for Melbourne Cup. Always nice to have a hard-working piece in your wardrobe.
You can find South for the Summer accessories on Etsy and at local markets. Check out the South for the Summer blog for more details.
