Throw Back

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!
