Jennifer Behr Wide Feather Headband, $158 at Saks
Recently, on an aimless visit to Barneys, I noticed a collection of feather headbands. Perhaps it was the chic woman trying them on or Sarah Jessica Parker's aplomb when wearing her feathered hat to the "Sex and the City" London premiere that drew my attention to the whimsical wildness of those mesmerizing adornments. A feather headband is probably the closest thing I'll ever get to wearing real feathers (the thought of spontaneous molting is enough to scare me off), and a touch of plumage adds individuality and spunk to an otherwise conservative outfit. Anyway, headbands are so Blair Waldorf--and I confess I love me some Gossip Girl.
