I pulled out this hat the other day and realized how many memories it holds. I bought it in New York when I was 19, on a summer road trip with some of my very best friends. New York was so unreal to me then - it seemed like a comic book that I was reading. I didn't think anybody could be fearless enough to make a life in a place so dense and bright. Everything inanimate vibrated somehow, everyone was neon, whether or not they wanted to be. The street lights and fire escapes and subways and car horns...everything was life or death. It's a memory that excites and terrifies me.
I bought this hat to block the sun, and it acted as a visual buffer for me during that trip: a layer between me and the city. When I'm in New York I always feel like I'm on the brink of panic - and it's dumb, but having a veil kept me a little more calm.
My love for these shoes borders on psychotic. They are PERFECT.
