It makes my life — for real — when one of you emails, tweets or comments saying they have tried a new look or style because of something seen in TAGG. I have to admit I’ve also had those moments. Whether you’ve seen them in my outfit posts or not, I’ve begun to experiment by mixing more patterns, colors and textures, and trying on — and buying things — I might not have even given a second look at in years past because of this blog. This hat is the perfect example. It’s totally out of my confort zone but after seeing it styled on Cheetah is the New Black and Pretty Shiny Sparkly (with my Zara sequin clutch!), among others, I had to give it a whirl.
This hat is a Target find, an Albertus Swanepoel for J. Crew look-alike. Found it on clearance for just $13 and immediately wore it with pride (even if people in CVS couldn’t stop staring. Rawr!).
PS: I’m not a hat person. I have a large head. Hats often sit ridiculously perched atop my head. Looks silly. This one works. Hooray! My husband totally hates it. Thinks I look ridiculous so of course I have to wear it around the house, even climbing into bed in my pjs with it on for a laugh. Ok, only I laughed. But it was worth it! At least he was nice enough to take these photos for me.
Hat: Target (2012) / Grey tee: Urban Outfitters (recebt 2012; men’s department) / Vest: Gap (2011) / Jeans: Joe’s / heels: Hollywould for Target (2008?) / Bag: purchased in Amsterdam (2008) / necklace: banana republic (2008) / bracelets: jewelmint + baublebar
Husband was pretty happy to see the hat perched anywhere but on my head!
PS: I’m totally OK that he doesn’t love everything I wore. Do you have some looks that your husband, boyfriend, girlfriend or friend totally do not go for yet you think you look adorable in it? Think we all do, and as long as you love it and it makes you feel a little rockstar, TAGG says rock it!
