My second entry for Month of Love! This week’s theme was favorite love story and I gotta say, it was too hard to pick just one out of the twenty some-odd that I came up with.

Melusina or Melusine is a feminine creature from European myth. A sacred river spirit bound to fresh water and hallowed springs, the Melusine is usually depicted with the body of a serpent or a fish, but, much like a mermaid, she is a stunning beauty from the waist up. This collection of headdresses by designer Jay Briggs celebrates that mythical creature in jaw-dropping fashion.
