Ever since I was in the 6th grade, I would always wear hats to school. I remember a teacher telling me that if I kept wearing hats, my hair would fall out. Hmm… Fact or myth, it never really stopped me from getting creative. From beanies to berets to chullos to animal hats, you name it, I wore it.
Times have changed and so has my style. I still occasionally sport a beanie but I thought I’d try something quite similar. I’d say the turban is the exotic, Turkish sister of the beanie; classic, refined and curiously unique. I feel my inner boho-gypsy (and apparently an angel as well) emerging as I sport this beige head candy. Not only is this hat quite charming, but also a great excuse to cover up a bad hair day *wink wink*
