a little itty cowbow hat March 29 2012

Sweater: Thrifted, Guelph 
Shirt: Banana Republic
Shoes: Thrifted, Guelph 
Skirt: Thrifted (altered), Bolton, Chez Thrift
Belt: Mama Dunstan
Earrings: Hattitude Jewellery 
Headband: Blogger Vancouver Sale

How this outfit came to be Hattified: I started with the headband that I got at the Vancouver blogger sale.  This shirt was the only red I had in my wardrobe that I packed from Ontario to Vancouver. I threw on the red shirt, and paired it with polkadot skirt. You know how I love my pattern on patterns.  

Why this outfit Works: The polka dot pattern in the shirt, reflects the patterned polka dots in the skirt. The bow around my neck is all I needed. I put on some dangly earrings. Brown tights, brown sweater, brown belt and brown vintage shoes make the outfit neutral.  No skirt is complete without a belt. 

Another version: Wear it with just a plain red tee shirt, or white shirt. Throw on a Hattitude necklace. 

It was quite windy yesterday. We started off going to the Anthropology museum today at the university of British Columbia. Anyone been there? My man friend is super stoked for it.  As we watched the bus drive past us, since we were at the wrong stop (we're really starting to get the hang of the transit system...not) we realized that the museum closed early. Silly gooses. We found ourselves at a record store, always a favourite destination and then stumbled into a used DVD store. Isn't it funny our children's generation will never experience the disappointment of going to the movie rental store and the DVD being out? Weird eh? I've never seen The Beach, with Leo. Any good? It's on the agenda tonight for movie watching.
