Since founding Posh Petals in 2007, designer Carie Harris has turned her modest, "mom-owned business" into a venerable headwear retailer with fashions sold at swank boutiques and stores around the world—including, notably, Nordstrom. Carie's brightly colored, floral-tinged hair accessories range from casual elastic headbands to wedding-day crowns, and her fondness for rhinestones had led to many an eye-catching hat and hair clip. A photo slideshow on her website displays a representative variety of the shop’s designs. Carie recently expanded her inventory to include several caps for boys, from classic crocheted designs to propeller models that lift their wearers to the heights of out-of-reach cookie jars.
