I've always had a thing for hair pieces.

(No, I'm not crying)

As a younger girl I would replay the image of the princess of Fantasia in Never Ending Story over and over again to see her frigging beautiful hair-crown-thingy.   I'll be honest.  I basically just wanted to BE her.  

I was also enthralled with this cheesy tourist trap called Greenfield Village in Detroit.  It's basically an old-timey village where you can go and watch a blacksmith or someone churn butter or some old shit like that.  There was also a millinery shop.  I would beg my parents to leave me there while they perused the Wright Brothers bicycle shop or Thomas Edison's original laboratory.  I never got to stay longer than 15 minutes with the ladies dressed in faux victorian garb making hats..  But it was enough to fall in love.

Recently, I found modern milliner's Laurel St Romain & Christopher Garbushian.  Together they make ilovefactory, a new york based hand-sewn, fashion forward, headgear company.

They were featured in Teen Vogue, New York Magazine's The Cut and Daily Candy to name a few.  Let their pictures speak for themselves...

Love you, mean it


p.s. Barton!  When are we moving to New York??
