Spring 2008: Hottest Accessory by Stacey Lapidus

If you haven't noticed already, Stacey Lapidus' unique and charming headbands are a hit with TV show Gossip Girls and singer/American Idol judge Paul Abdul, and have been featured in Cosmopolitan, People, InTouch, Vanity Fair, Glamour, and at least a dozen other magazines since 2005! Lapidus, an accessory fanatic, started with a versatile handbag line in 2005, and then began her luxurious, refined, but contemporary jewelry line featuring necklaces, bangles, and bracelets. She dares to mix classic fabrics such as velvet, silk, and chiffon with sparkling crystals and other components that make her line unexpected and classic all at the same time. Lapidus' designs for her line came from her deep appreciation for antique jewelry. Way to go vintage, Stacey!

Most recently on Gossip Girl, Lapidus' chic and moderately cheap headbands adorn the head of Leighton Meester, as the fashion queen ingenue of the Upper East Side, New York, New York-- Blair Waldorf. Among the most popular headbands worn by Meester are the Three Row Crystal Headband ($100) and the Crystal and Chain Silk Headband with Bow ($90). My favorite of the two is the Three Row Crystal Headband-- it comes in the prettiest, softest colors and the crystals make the headband as cute as can be!

"Accessories are my passion. I wanted to create distinct pieces that are versatile and luxurious, yet affordable" -Stacey Lapidus
