The Moon Never Beams Without Bringing Me Dreams
I think this hat will always be associated with Edgar Allan Poe for me. Not only did I see a play about Poe the weekend I got the hat, but the hat itself kind of has an 1800's feel to me, and I'm a big fan of that! I've been talking all week about my style being ALL OVER THE PLACE and worrying that I'll never find a personal style and all that, but today I felt so right in my outfit. I guess it took a week of inadvertently dressing in really different looks to figure out what I really wanted? I don't know. But I do know that one of the reasons I started this blog was to get a better sense of what I like and what I don't like, how I want to dress and how I don't want to dress, so I suppose it's working!
So, I didn't do all that much today, but I knew that I wanted to wear this outfit! I thought of it yesterday and when I saw that it actually looked like I hoped it would, I just had to wear it immediately. I actually lost my over the knee socks from American Apparel (they're probably in someone else's sock drawer, but I'm too lazy to look for them), but I really wanted to wear them today. So, I made a pair of my own out of some knitted tights that I don't wear anymore. I was quite proud, even if they fall down every now and then :)
