ban.do

If you've never seen the work of polaroid photographer Jen Gotch, then you've been seriously missing out. She takes gorgeous, grainy, dreamy works which you can check out at her blog or on Flickr. I've long loved the nostalgic sense of style which comes across in her work, but never before was it available to us, the common, less stylish, folk. Now there's ban.do, featuring beautiful handmade headbands and combs. From the website (original emphasis):
Each piece is handmade, and one of a kind using totally awesome materials. They're not perfect, but they are fantastic, and sometimes fantastic is better than perfect, wouldn't you agree? Oh yeah, and they each come with their own haiku.
Here are a few of my favs:
no. 13 (sadly, sold)
art nouveau head dress
song of siren invites

oh witchy womanno. 10 (also sold)no. 45

I wish I could pull off the feather-in-your-hair thing. So retro and cute.
