rubysue 's Thoughts:

this outfit is loosely inspired by jazz and all of its crazy improvisation. the stripes and netting and menswear and satin… makes me want to sit in a darkened bar corner with a glass of red wine and a bowl of olives and just listen, while that meaning and clarity sets in….

what kind of music speaks to you most?

PS funny story – i bought this hat because i found it in a consignment store and got my sunglasses hopelessly caught in the netting. i had to slink up to the cashier and get him to cut them out after trying to untangle them for 10 minutes! it was so embarrassing that i ended up buying the hat, but i’m glad i did. maybe it was just a huge rouse to convince myself i HAD to buy it…. :)

more on the b to the log

EDIT: this look featured on runway daily. a great post about summer hats. so exciting! my first feature! thanks for all the comments guys!

I love how Jazz inspired you for this outfit! Jazz inspires me too, but instead my outfit would consist of an oversized blazer and a hat like yours! :)
