About the Designer...
My name is Annelee and I started The Ruffled Cupcake in February just as a bit of a fluke. I was making pretties for myself and my daughter and showed them to friends on Facebook who said they'd love to buy them. I love making hair accessories and jewelry at prices that are affordable.

Review...
I found The Ruffled Cupcake a few months ago, and have loved everything she makes from the beginning. Annelee makes beautiful hair pretties for girls of all ages, and jewelry for mom too! She sells her customer creations through her Facebook page, and recently started her Etsy shop.
This adorable headband I received features two flower rosettes that Annelee has now named the {Chloe} style. This {Chloe} double is made from an aqua floral fabric, and has been placed on a gray satin ribbon wrapped headband. It's very well made, and the rosettes are attached very well. You can see that felt is used to reinforce the structure of the them on the headband. The headband is wrapped tightly and covered completely by the ribbon.
This headband is just so cute! It has a bit of a vintage feel, and yet feels so feminine and modern at the same time. I LOVE the print of this fabric. This is actually a recreation of a headband I saw (and loved) in a Facebook album she had. I'm so impressed that she can duplicate almost anything. While their are variances in recreations from an original, that just makes your hair pretty uniquely yours! The headband itself fits my head very well too. Most headbands hurt my head, but this one does not!  

Annelee does an excellent job and has MANY repeat customers by the looks of all her Facebook interactions. They're keeping her very busy! Her hair accessories are not just for babies and girls. Women and moms wear them too! Her Etsy shop features only a few of the styles she can make. It looks like she is possibly reorganizing to start creating full lines and specific designs to constantly have listed in her shop. Annelee takes custom creations all the time, and you can change the hardware on many items to headbands, clips, or various elastics too! Oh, if you need some fabulous photo props for a newborn (or any age really), The Ruffled Cupcake is where you want to go!




Win it!
One winner will receive a {Norah} Double Headband in the winner's choice of colors!
