Dreaming of a Winter Accessories filled Christmas

Weald Faux Fur Hat

Like many of you, I have spent quite a bit of quality time perusing the internet for deals. Seriously online shopping is really an addiction. I spend so much time deciding whether I am buying the gift because the person I am buying it for will like it or because I like it and want it for myself. And then there is the inevitable fact that for every item I find for someone else I find 20 things that I want for myself. Seriously, are all major holiday and event (back to school, summer) sales meant to save moms and families money really designed to trick single people into buying a ton of stuff? Oh this sweater is marked down so that your Aunt you never see can afford to buy it for you? Don't mind if I pick up this bargain for myself. 

Honestly, though I'm wandering a bit off topic. While scrolling through the Anthropologie website the other day (I know I'm obsessed, read my previous post about said store here) for my Cyber Monday post I found myself struggling to make a decision on which accessorie that I wanted to feature. Hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, it doesn't matter. I loved them all. 

There is a problem though. First, I'm not made of money so I can't indulge my fancies and buy all of them. Second, I look/feel somewhat silly in hats. In my head/when I try them on in the store, hats are adorable and sexy and make me look that cute quirky girl that somehow always meets the cutest guys randomly at a coffee shop. The girl that every guy looks at and thinks, "Who is that girl? I must take her home to meet my incredibly wealthy and old monied family who will welcome her into the family with open arms." However, in reality who wears a cloche in the 2010's (although I think they should make a MAJOR comeback in the 2020's!)? For that matter, who besides Rachel Zoe, wears a hat at all? (Just to clarify when I say "wear hats" I mean indoors and all day long, not outside to keep your head warm.) I don't want to be that girl at work.

So in conclusion to this semi long ramble, what I want for Christmas is an unlimited budget to buy winter accessories from Anthro and a world in which it is accepted and encouraged to wear said things....and world peace...and to help those less fortunate...and other things. 

We have to start somewhere.
