Eureka!

Today was a very exciting day.

I finally found a hat that is bigger than my “larger-than-any-women’s-often-men’s-hat-shop-can-tackle (without resorting to a special order, I mean).

And here it is:

Carla Big Hat

It has the added bonus of covering all my hair — no need to brush, flat iron or coif!

Seeing may be a slight problem…

“Dog people are good people.”

I’ll alert the media

I passed this delivery truck in my neighborhood yesterday afternoon.  The service is new to me, but the name is a classic.

Can it really be over 30 years now — 1981 in fact — since Dudley Moore burst onto the scene in the comedy classic Arthur, with Sir John Gielgud at his side as his loyal, oh-so-proper manservant Hobson?

Even he might approve of the logo’s jaunty cap and just-so tie.

The driver of the delivery van was very young.  I couldn’t help but wonder — does he even understand the reference for the company name?

Perhaps he is more familiar with the cringeworthy 2011 movie version of Arthur where Helen Mirren portrayed  Hobson in a bit of gender-bending casting.  If so, he is probably confused by the logo. (Helen didn’t wear a hat.)

And thinks the movie was awful.

Young people.

 

 

 

Most wanted

If you too are eagerly awaiting the Muppets Most Wanted sequel (coming March 21), perhaps this will complete your ensemble for the premiere!

Full disclosure — I saw it online at Toys R Us…so you may have to lend it to your kid (or pet).

Oh Kermie…

Do you see what I see?

I follow a lot of entertainment magazines on Twitter…probably too many.  And if I’m willing to admit that,  they should meet me half way and admit they use the following headline way, way, way too much:

“____________ is barely recognizable [in new hair cut] [in hat] [after losing weight]

Either that, or their reporters, writers and editors are BLIND AS BATS.

Exhibit A:  US Weekly found Pam Anderson ‘barely recognizable’ after she cut her trademark long locks into a short pixie.

Pam AndersonReally?

Even with her shades on, I think it looks exactly like Pam Anderson…just with shorter hair.

Perhaps I am just more observant.  And adaptable. And brilliant.

I am willing to own that.

Exhibit B:  Another publication struggled to identify Anne Hathaway when she donned a beige sock top while out on a smoothie run.

anne hathawayI don’t know — maybe I do have amazing powers of deduction.

‘Cause I think it’s pretty obvious.

Maybe I have missed my true calling and should be an annoying member of the paparazzi. Or perhaps I should just blame the copy editor for using hyperbole — instead  of creativity — to drive folks to their websites.

Although I do like the idea that I have super powers.

I gotta new hat.

Cool, huh?

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.
