I gotta new hat.
I bought it yesterday at the Penguin store in Soho. I didn’t even know they a) were still around, b) sold clothes for men and women, and c) carried casual styles. (In my mind, the Penguin brand — the one with the cute little sketchy penguin logo — had something to do with tuxedos.)
Live and learn.
But yesterday, while shopping with a friend who was visiting — and who knows a lot more about Penguin than I do — I bought that hat.
I love it first and foremost because it looks great with denim and black — 99 percent of every New Yorker’s wardrobe. Secondly, it fits my large cranium. (Yes, I realize it’s a man’s hat. But still.)
And last but not least, while wearing it around the city yesterday, it was just fun to be that chick –
The one in the hat…from the tuxedo store.
