They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery. If that’s the case, local designer and crafty lady Ann H. must be feelin’ some serious love. She’s the face and fingers behind adorable Lou and Lee headbands for kiddos—the same headbands that have generated a handful of spin-offs on crafty sites like Etsy. But just like a Louis V handbag or classic Frye boot (or Magnolia cupcake, while we’re at it), there’s nothing quite like the real thing.
Especially when the real thing is handmade and hand-stitched by a fashion-loving stylista. Ann’s signature designs are uniquely intricate and fashion-forward, always incorporating fabric rosettes, textured blossoms or vintage-inspired tattoos—and loads of sequins, on occasion. Attention to detail and creative genius come together to make a perfect look that can’t be replicated.
And that’s the kind of thing you can wrap your head around. Or wrap around your baby’s head.
