Guess what I just crossed off my bucket list?! a hat!
I never thought this day would happen freakin' happen! To finally wear a hat without looking like a fool.
I've never own a hat nor a baseball cap my whole darn life and I blame it on the size of my head. (they're massive!)
I remember the stories about Woodwards from my colleagues at the other job oh how it used to be "the high-end retail store", with the elevator attendants and a hat shop where you can get your hat feathers replaced. (oh, how I dream of those good 'ol days).
Now that we're talking about hats, do you know of any hat stores here in Vancouver?
Will you be wearing them this season?
Now, before I start wearing this, I'll do my own little research about how to take care of them and proper etiquettes. Don't you just love learning?
There are times when I just have no clue what to wear. It's also those times that I opt for a monochromatic palette. It gives me the chance to play with different textures, shades or types of fabrics of the same colour.
The integration of two brilliant minds being unified to come up with something surreal just when we think they have outdone themselves with their own creations and we never would think is possible. It's when a alliance of knowledge comes into fruition that surprises us in an awe as we witness the product of the combined brilliance.
From the sound of a musical instrument to the way we move and dance to it..
or the partnership of two different designers creating a amazing garment.
I know, I know.. there's still that NYFW going on with all those beautiful garments on the runways for the next summer, but who am I kidding?! I am not an uber-popular (read: nowhere near) blogger like Bryanboy nor Rumi Neely of Fashiontoast who has access to front-row seats all things that they can just randomly tweet and would just magically appear in a pretty box with a bow outside of their 10-star hotel rooms. Gee, I can't even lay my eyes on a single item I drool over online or in a magazine.
So here I am, in the basement of a house fluff-ing up a mohair sweater that I bought from a vintage store last year that I never really got the chance to wear last winter. Oh, the joy of being alone. sigh.
I notice a lot of brands carrying mohair sweaters.
The first thing we did was visit the Empire State Building which is not that far from the hotel we stayed at. Good thing we had the "CityPass", which allowed us to cut through some lines and were given the audio tour of the city from the top of the building. It gave us a good idea of where everything is.
And then there was the Library...
man, was it huge!
Though we did not get to explore the whole building, I was impressed on how beautiful it was.
And the smell of old books? oh! A book-lover would have an orgasm. ahihihihi..!
We did walk for hours and we came across the Cathedral so we stopped by for a little prayer.
I felt a little rude snapping pictures so I tried to limit myself by taking only a few.
There was also a couple getting married and the church closed early because of Irene.
We noticed the windows are all boarded up and there were signs everywhere saying stores will be closed for the weekend. Boo!
But then we took advantage of the rest of the night and went to the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center.
We thought it'd be neat to see the city at night with all the lights this time.
