"" FutureLint (I have nothing to wear!): the mad hatter (you know, mad like hats make me ANGRY)

the mad hatter (you know, mad like hats make me ANGRY)

So here is how I wore the newly spruced up jacket today:
Jacket - it was cheap on etsy, I won't mention the store because I was not a fan. Yeah, it was cheap, but when I got it the inside is all torn up from where they pulled out the shoulder pads. Hmm... should you maybe mention to potential buyers that there are gaping holes in the lining??? I think so.
White tank - little boys Fruit of the Loom
Pants - thrifted The Limited
Shoes - Doc Marten's (inherited from sister about 10 years ago)

Now that that's out of the way, something unexpected happened today... I've always thought that girls who wear hats are CRAZY (I don't know why, but whenever I see a girl wearing a hat, I always assume they are a headcase. I just don't enjoy a hat. Well, maybe the fox fur busby, but that's a whole nother thing... I just don't wear hats indoors, maybe that's it. And there was that unfortunate kooky Blossom hat phase in 7th grade... okay, I'm getting off topic here-- the topic is "Christine does not wear hats.") So, I've thrifted some great fascinator style hats lately like these two floral numbers I sold on my etsy (seriously these fascinators sold in like 5 seconds. These babies are HOT right now!)

I found two more for a couple bucks each. I was totally planning on selling them. I was going to put them on my etsy right now, since I'm still dealing with the mutant elbow and can't try on a million things to photograph for the store. BUT!!! I want to keep this one. It's navy blue and looks like it's made of licorice ropes! I want to keep it. I want to wear it. Like this. (Oh, and the bling on it is a clip-on earring I threw on it, not part of the hat.) 

Hat - thrifted (with thrifted clip-on earring attached)
Cardigan - Target
T-shirt - Target
Heart necklace - Claire's (it was from when I was Little Orphan Annie for Halloween two years ago)
Long necklace - inherited from Mom
Pants - thrifted The Limited
Shoes - thrifted Anne Taylor LOFT

For some reason, this outfit makes me feel like Rooster's girlfriend in Annie. Anyone?

I don't (can't) do hats, either, but this sorta puts me in the mind of a fancy headband...and you look great in it, so I vote that you keep it!

Was looking for an update on the elbow (my gramps always called them "albows")....hope they figure it out and get you all fixed soon!

I don’t wear hats either. But my brother got married last summer and for some reason I decided I needed to wear a fascinator.

So I made one.


It came out pretty flippin awesome
