The David Crockett Hat

This post will seemingly be a late post and I’m not surprised if you’ll be reading this entry by the new year. Old habits, die hard but I should be working on it..it is a start of 2013 after all which gives me enough reason to do so.  But then again, we say that every year, don’t we? Haha. The irony.

Seldom does the winter breeze pass by in my side of town (or city if I might say), so when it does all the coats and the fur in my closet come out. Today the weather was just right and I still have lots of last minute shopping to do. You see, I don’t only have to do Christmas shopping for myself, yearly (until the kids are older) I get assigned with helping my younger siblings shop for the people in our family and let’s not forget there’s 10 of us (including Todd, the family dog). Preferably, I shop all throughout the year and so when the Holiday comes all I have to do is finish up on those people on the list that I missed out and just wrap the gifts. And done.

Not this year..it’s the 23rd and I’m still up and about making my way around First Colony with the rest of the world and it’s last minute shoppers. Ho ho ho…

(CAP: Coonskin, Denver/ ANORAK: Wet Seal/ TANK TOP: No Boundaries/ JEGGINGS: Wet Seal/ WEDGES: faux fur, 5,7,9; from Pauline and Marie/ PURSE: Miley Cyrus, from Roxi/ SUNGLASSES: Shasa, $2.00 on sale/ ACCESSORIES: NECKLACE: from Paulo; RING: H&M; BRACELETS: Dream, BCBG; Studded, Forever 21)

The wedges,I got from my sisters last Christmas. They hang out with me while I Christmas shop and watch me drool over stuff I want to get myself ( but can’t since it’s the season of giving) and they get it for me anyway. They are the sweetest.

Pre-shopping pose.

Closer view of the hat and the sunnies. I actually got the coonskin cap for someone but I wanted to keep it for myself and so I ended up not giving it. Bad,I know.

A new add-on to the arm candy: DREAM. I only started wearing it when I gave out the 2 other ones to Roxi and Ann.

Rarely Rugged.

Anyhow, to those similarly last-minute shoppers out there who are still confused and are deciding what to get—as David Crockett would say: ” If it feels right—go ahead”. ( Sheesh, I hope American Historians won’ take what I said as a mockery of his patriotism) Yeah, I kind of got curious on how these coonskin caps came about and ended up reading a whole lot on Davey Crockett. See, fashion is educational–if you let it.

Enjoy the holidays. I’ll catch you later (eventually, haha). Merry Christmas and have a Blessed New Year!
