green eyed maven!

On your list of daily anxieties (arriving late on donut day, arriving early on donut day and stuffing your face), hair catastrophes rank high.

Keep strays at bay with Green Eyed Maven braided accessories.

Local designer Aubrey D’Agostino scours estate sales and thrift shops for vintage designer scarves (think Liberty of London, Pucci, Oscar de la Renta, and Anne Klein) then gives her finds a second chance at life, weaving them into breezy, boho-chic headgear.

Every one-size-fits-most piece includes a fabric train: Wear it loose or, if you’re feeling saucy, loop it through your braid (it looks especially lovely braided around your head).

The collection has everything from vibrant primaries to subdued pastels; the skinny neutral comes in handy.
