I have the day off. I am doing spring cleaning. I am very happy.
I bought this hat this weekend (more about it later) at this totally awesome antique store. It cost me $10. I totally love it. But it's odd wearing a hat out in public. I know most people who wear vintage hats get the same reaction, but it's still annoying. Most people stare at you, there is the occasional giggle, you get the "oh you uncool plebeian" grin, and people act like you've got a monkey on your head. But then there are the select few who rave about your head wear and then knock ten dollars off your purchase in their thrift store, or the old ladies who offer you a %50 discount if you come to their thrift shop and buy one of their way over priced hats (which I will eventually take her up on). or the old ladies who suddenly have found a camaraderie with you in the parking lot and offer you a coupon for a $7 buffet at a catering/karaoke place (which I will not being taking her up on). Or the gay rockabilly guy who thinks you are just fabulous and OMG if only there were more people like us. Or the skinhead in his skinhead truck who rolls his window down to tell you cool hat and girls should wear more of them cuz they're pretty hot. I take whatever compliments I can get guys.
Anyways, my verdict on hats: totally worth it. Try it, it's totally awesome and apparently we look hot. Also, I've been really bad about responding to comments lately. I'll try and get back to you today, but do you guys prefer my answering your questions in the comments, or on your blog, or in an email, or by carrier pigeon? I never know if you guys are actually getting my responses! Let me know!
