Tottie's Pretties or J.Crew?!

Someone at J.Crew must of seen a Tottie's Pretties & found inspiration because this is what they are selling for $26.50 & got coverage in the NYTimes Magazine:

The High Low J.Crew headband, $26.50
By Courtney A. Weinblatt

Good style mixes high-ticket items with brilliant affordable gets. In this column, T’s fashion team finds the cheap and the chic.

What: Headband with fabric flower and bow (style #98114)

How much: $26.50 at J.Crew retail locations

Who: Courtney Weinblatt, T Magazine’s Fashion Assistant

As a general rule, hair accessories with bows scare me. They are a painful reminder of the style mistakes I made growing up in Boston, the capital of prep, where toile is not just for upholstery but a major fashion statement. So I was surprised to find myself gravitating toward this headband from J.Crew. It’s the perfect weapon to combat summer frizz, and, while it does have a bow (gulp!), it’s anything but preppie.


With its beige flower made from multiple layers of chiffon circles, stacked on top of a clean loop of black grosgrain, the headband is decidedly more Audrey Hepburn than Bunny McDougal. In fact, just this morning a colleague asked me if it was Chanel or Lanvin. It was enough to make me forget I ever liked madras.
