Anyone wonder how trends start? Like, is there a memo I need to sign up for?
Overnight there has been a fedora EXPLOSION. I thought I was ahead of it, grabbing that mint green Eugenia Kim for Target version during my visit home, but before I've even gotten the chance to wear it...
I'm staring at THREE people wearing fedoras. New York is a funny place because you often have a front row seat to things you're not supposed to be privy to. For example... right now. I'm sitting on my couch watching a little roof-top gathering happening across the air shaft from me. My position only allows me to see the upper third of everyone's bodies, so I really have no choice but to stare at the fedoras.
The look seems to know no limits--gender, age, or budget-wise. They're $300 at Bloomies or $10 at every single NYC street fair. Boys and girls at this roof top party are sporting them. The managers at work are wearing them and so are the assistants.
I still find myself hesitant to try the look--wearing a hat, it's such a commitment! What do I do if I want to take it off? Where will it go? Ah hell, I have to go for it. At least I'll stand out amongst all the [classic, of course] beige.
