My new find :)

Sunday, April 22, 2012

Okay this is random in itself how this happened, but never the less I'm glad. So friday after an appointment in the east village, im walking back to catch the train, but as I'm walking I realized that I'm going the wrong way. You would think that I would just turn around and start back walking in the right direction or ask someone for help, but no, me being the stubborn person that I am chooses to keep on walking. smh. well I'm glad I choose to because I stumbled myself into this AMAZING boutique hat store, The Village Scandal. It's a small quaint shop that sells a wide variety of handmade and vintage hats from the big floppy ones to fedoras and derby hats. So I walk in to see their array of hats, not really expecting to buy anything, because I'm on a budget... or well I'm trying to be. My eyes lead me straight to this handmade boater hat....I picked it up....I tried it on...and it fit! My stomach dropped straight to my toes and I did a little happy dance on the inside. I was leaving with a new found friend. Me and the sales associate ( I forgot her name...Sorry) talked for a while about hats and other good things and I confided in her that I've been looking for a boater hat just like this one for so long, but I haven't had any luck. I was searching on ebay and etsy for the longest, but was afraid to buy one. Boater hats are not an inexpensive item, they usually cost a nice penny and I didn't want to put down that kind of money on something that I was unsure of the fit and quality especially since my hair has gotten a hell of a lot bigger. Anyway with all that said, I cant wait to wear it out.







Hope y'all didn't notice the XXL size tag, my hair get bigger by the day,  lol
