Should I Get Rid of This?: Day 5 (grey flapper hat)

Two things to start.

1. Classy people definitely take photos in the bathroom.

2. Just because a gay guy says something looks good and you should buy it, does not make it true.

I bought this hat at Goodwill because my friend said it was cute. I guess it is, but I also don't really wear hats that often. I kept worrying it was going to fall off. I also worry it looks like I am trying too hard ... to be Annie Hall? Or Grace from Annie? Not really sure.

On the other hand, I did get some compliments on it, but they might have been being passive aggressive.

On the third, alien hand, maybe I could pull off the hat under the right circumstances? I dunno. I am leaning towards getting rid of this, though.

Now that I look at it again, this kind of has a 1840s safari hunter look to it, huh? Which may or may not be a good thing.

I have one of those in black that I paid full price for and have yet to wear. It's a hard style to pull off, I think.

Keep it as a costume accessory. The minute you get rid of it, you'll regret it.

V, such a good point! I just remembered that this hat would work perfectly with my "greyscale" Halloween costume idea. :)
