Raving Ribbons

My friend Mindy launched her Ivan & Mary etsy store with incredibly cool reversible ribbon belts and fun totes in delicious prints.  Now, she’s expanded to her own online store complete with canvas ribbon belts for kids, dog collars, and sweet reversible ribbon headbands which will keep your locks swept away from your eyes and give you a slightly more pulled together look than just a ponytail.

Each headband set comes with three reversible ribbons for a total of 6 different looks per set.  The ends are folded in and stitched to prevent fraying.  One end remains open for ease of headband threading and removal.

Usually my biggest complaint about headbands is that they’re too tight on my skull.  After a few hours or even a few minutes of wear, many of them cause discomfort.  My grandmother always said, “Honey, sometimes we have to suffer to be beautiful.”  While that may be true for some things, I don’t think that should be the case for a lovely hair accessory.  Discomfort is definitely not the case with Ivan & Mary’s reversible headband.  It’s a lightweight and flexible plastic which fits varying sized crowns from a young girl to a mom.

ivanandmaryIvan & Mary has five headband sets available, each with its own unique combination of six lovely looks.  If you live in Charlottesville, you don’t have to wait for shipping.  Pick up your favorite Ivan & Mary goods locally at Novel boutique in Barracks Road Shopping Center – North.

Whether you live locally or on the west coast, you can win your own set of reversible ribbon headbands (retail value $15) courtesy of Ivan & Mary.
