Throw Back

By  | 

Happy Saturday guys! So happy to share another outfit post with you…this one is special because the hat was my grandmother’s.  While I inherited several of her hats a couple of years ago when she passed away, they were a wee bit too small for my head (and I always thought I had a tiny noggin).  But it wasn’t until recently I got a hat while thrifting that too was undersized as well, that it dawned on me to look up if anyone else had a solution to my problem…and low and behold they did! The message boards I read suggested that I wet the hat and then wear them.  Not one to mess up my hair (I know I’m not the only one), I soaked the hat in the bathtub, placed a plastic bag on my hair, and proceeded to wear them each for about a half hour around the house as they dried — and presto, it worked! I was so very excited to find a solution, so now I’ll be rocking her hats with pride.

I also wanted to share a funny story with you. I wanted to try a new location today, so I took my camera up to Lincoln Center for this post. I was just about finished shooting myself with the 10 second timer when a New York City Police Officer began to approach (I could see him coming in my LCD screen, but pretended not to notice) and told me I couldn’t shoot if I was using a tripod. How was I supposed to finish, alone? Having everything I needed except my wideshot, I expressed my dilemma to the officer and he offered to take some shots for me. Relieved and now finished, I happily packed up my stuff.  So, while I didn’t get his name….I’d like to dedicate this post to that officer.  It just goes to show you that you should always be nice, even if you’re being ejected from a place 🙂 Have a beautiful weekend guys!

    You know I’m loving the hat! You always get good finds in Grandma’s closet. Perfect combo! You’ve inspired me to go hat shopping!

      YES…some of my favorite possessions were my grandparents — I’m been even getting a lot of use out of a pool stick that used to be my grandfathers. Can’t wait to see the hats you get!
