Black Mermaid, Silver Aphrodite

It seems like everything in the fashion and design world is being influenced by the release of The Great Gatsby, due out this spring. Don't get me wrong, it's always been one of my favorite reads, and I love art deco, but not everyone can pull off the flapper style without looking like they're going to a costume party. And drop waist dresses are only flattering on waif-like girls. So if you're dying to join the fashion craze this season, do it with head gear!

Silver Aphrodite
Last night, while combing the interwebs, I stumbled upon this little treasure of a shop based in Edinburg, UK. Rene Walrus is a jewelry and accessory boutique. They have beautiful pendants, hair combs, and veils, but what I really love from the talented woman behind it all, is the headdresses. They evoke an ethereal and enchanting spirit.
The Queeny Headband

Kelp Headdress
The Black Mermaid line is made up of bejeweled headbands and tiaras.  With names like Silver Aphrodite and Black Mermaid, you feel like a mystical and alluring sea siren.

I love these pieces and you don't have to be a bride to wear them. They would go just as well with your little black dress as they would your glamorous gown.

Are you excited for the release of the movie? What do you think of these works of art? Would you wear one? We want to hear about it! Tell us in the comments section!
