I have a desperate dream to be a hat person.
Not many people are hat people. Brittney? Of Lemon Love? Is a hat person, an I hate her for this. I suspect that my former roommate Tess is a hat person as well, although she so rarely wears them that I have yet to test this hypothesis. I have been tempted, while Tess is asleep on the couch, to gingerly place a newsboy cap on her Irish head just to quietly prove my theory.
It isn’t creepy if it’s for science.
Anyway, my hat cravings are not for just any old hats. I’m not interested in cowboy hats or baseball caps or those Tiny Tim affairs that got popular again about ten years ago. Or maybe I just thought they got popular. I never assume these things.
I would specifically like to be able to wear crocheted or knitted baggy berets/beanies/tam hats. I don’t mean baggy like use-it-to-hide-your-unwashed-dreadlocks-during-the-day baggy, or even think-it-would-be-cool-to-like-pull-your-wallet-out-of-it baggy. I’m talking about those hats that tall, twiggy girls wear with their slouchy boots and long dresses on the way to the Whole Foods in November. I desperately, desperately want to wear that sort of hat.
The problem with this is that I am neither tall nor twiggy. In fact, I suspect that these hats might look rather atrocious on a hobbit. Still, I can’t help but dream about them.
Internet, do you have any experience with these hats? I have been coveting them in places like Btrflymom’s shop on Etsy and on fashion blogs all across the blogosphere, and I am beginning to wonder if maybe it would be worth it to just buy on.
Also, can anyone tell me what the hell a snood is?
