Mom surprised me today when she came home with a fur hat she had bought for me.
Okay, that’s lie, this is how it really went down. I went shopping with mom today, showed her the fur hat at HM , she happily wanted to buy it for me and I couldn’t refuse the offer. BUT, I did look for fur hats in second hand stores prior to the purchase and could only find Russian fur hats for pensioners. With that being said I couldn’t resist the hat sold at HM especially when it looks perfect at a very affordable price.
I’m very pleased with it and even though I have an O.J Simpson sized head I managed, using a little force, to fit it on my head. During testing I found out it looks best on me with the flaps tied up because when they are down very little of my face is visible.
Today’s bargain is off course the bow tie I bought in a SH store. Made out of velvet it has an exclusive touch to it. I bought it for a cool €2 which is only a tiny fraction of the €30-40 price which most bow ties cost in the retail stores around here.
