Releasing this Friday, July 5th, there will be a gold Minnie ear headband that incorporates the classic look of ALEX AND ANI with an iconic Minnie Mouse silhouette. Engraved on the sides of the headband, ALEX AND ANI encourages you to “follow your path” and “listen with your heart!”

In August there will be a Minnie ear headband that will debut in time for Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary.
