Blue Crush

I’ve been totally obsessed and dying to wear this blue hat ever since I picked it up at Forty Five Ten!  You may have seen my ramblings on twitter and instagram.  But seriously, who doesn’t need a blue hat?!  At least, that is what I convinced my friend KM!

I had some time to kill so I popped into Forty Five Ten before a lunch date with KM.  Harmless enough right?  WRONG!  Besides finding this amazing 100% wool, water resistant, cobalt blue treasure for $35 {see why it was so hard to resist}, I also got a Kelly Wearstler perforated bangle for the same price.  If you head over to her website, then you’ll know that’s a steal!  My friend, KM, ended up getting the hat and bangle also!  :)  We felt like bandits when we left the place.
When I was trying to find a something blue to match the hat, this Missoni for Target skirt {seen as a top here} came to mind.  But… looking at these pictures, I look like a cross between a pimp and Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman when she was “workin’ it”!  Yikes!  No wonder Mr. S gave me the big eyes and said that I really needed to OWN this look! LOL!  Next time, I’ll wear the hat with these pants instead.

P.S.  Thanks for all the positive feedback on the ‘What to Bring to IFB Conference/Fashion Week’ post!  Let me know if there are other topics that you would like me to cover.
P.P.S.  I updated my facebook page!  I’m not really a ‘facebook person’ so I’m trying to work on it.  Baby steps people!

  1. Wow, it takes confidence to wear a hat, and you look amazing! I personally love hats, but not everyone is a hat person! I love the way you pulled this outfit together. It’s fabulous and that skirt is to die for. I want it! So happy to have found you on Twitter! Maybe I’ll see you at the conference next week! Great blog!!!

  2. Luv the hat, but what makes this work so well is the color of your lipstick. Not to mention how sexy and full they look!! Absolutely fabulous!

  3. Oh Sam. So jealous of you and your amazing finds for such great deals. Love this hat from Forty Five Ten, and I especially love that first photo. Fierce. I do not see anything wrong with the Missoni skirt, but I would love to see the hat with the Alice & Olivia pants!

    PS. Made a trip to the Last Call today and thought of you!
