Baby’s frou-frou frippery is from Pink Bowtique and the sophisticated mock tortoise band is from France Luxe as is the leopard version.
If you go back and look at old pictures of Coco Chanel — when she was no spring poulet — you’ll see her with a wide black ribbon acting as aforementioned headband, featuring a soft, jaunty bow or with one of her signature camellias adorning the side.
If it’s a fashion statement you’re looking for as well as a diversionary tactic, go for the leopard. It’s big again over here — in small doses — and you can’t get much smaller than this.
