Shades of Grey

October 16, 2015 1 Comment

Not 50 shades of grey, just several shades of grey.

Grey is one of my favourite colours to wear. I could probably put together an entire lookbook of stony monochromatic outfits. I have grey trousers, denim, sweaters, silk blouses, shoes, gloves, hats, scarves, purses, lingerie, makeup, etc. For Halloween I should probably go out as a very chic Tin Man, or perhaps a sartorially-inclined storm cloud?

Ok, on to the important part of this post. My deep love for this HAT. And a deep love for any inanimate object does not come without a story…

So I had my eye on this Kate Spade hot pink pom-pom wonder. I lovingly visited the website over and over, until one day I finally bought it. The Canadian dollar was lower than a snake’s ankles, and my eyes nearly fell out of my head when I saw how much the total was…but it was mine.
Until it wasn’t. A few days later, I got an email from Kate Spade informing me that the hat was actually sold out and they wouldn’t be charging my credit card after all. I was devastated! Where else was I going to find a wool cap with a plush fur pom-pom right on top? Nowhere! I mourned my pom-pom hat, and a part of me is still sad.

While in Montreal, my little brother asked me to pop into Simon’s to pick up his favourite t-shirts. We don’t have Simon’s in Toronto, which is a shame! As I was leaving I actually saw the hat I’m wearing in this post, sitting alone on a pile of scarves. There were no others. Could it be? A wool cap with a plush pom-pom right on top? ALSO, this hat is made in Canada, and it was under $100 CANADIAN. WHAT. My only qualm is that it is not hot pink, but I love it anyway. I love it.

The Kate Spade hat is back in stock though. So should I give my current pom-pom hat a friend? 🙂
