Lookbook: Spiked Wide Brim Fedora Hat


O hai. Long time no post... again. I guess this is my official post for 2013! I hope everyone had a great start to the new year.

I know it seems like I have been dead in the blogging world since my updates have been very sporadic, but I'm very much alive on Instagram and Twitter. I haven't been posting too much on my blog just because most of my outfits have been mirror shots posted on Instagram. The good thing about Instagram is it's easy to use, and it already has preset filters. It's also easier to take mirror shots (or selfies), and share your pictures in real time. But, your writing space is very limited, so any details to an outfit might be left behind. Nonetheless, I still find myself often updating it more than once everyday. I also find it more interactive since it's much easier to respond to everyone.



So you might be wondering, how can I possibly be wearing this outfit in the middle of winter season. For the past few days, we have been blessed with some amazing high 70 degree weather in January, and at one point, it went up to as high as 80 something degrees. AMAZING. This is why I love Los Angeles. We can take out our shorts in the middle of winter season while everyone else is bundled up in the cold. Yes, we complain once the temperature dips down to anything lower than 50 degrees, which happened a few weeks ago, but California is called the sunny state for a reason. We probably looked like a bunch of crazies to the east coasters for whining about the "cold" weather.


One thing about being a tad bit colder is I can wear my beanies and hats. I've been particularly smitten over my Zara spiked wide brim fedora hat. I love this hat so much that I wish I can wear it everyday. I always get complimented on how cool this hat is whenever I'm out. I really love the spike detail on the hat because it gives an extra edge to any outfit. I may or may not love this hat since it also sort of reminds me of the hat that Walt wears in Breaking Bad. I mean it's only the best show, ever.



Oh, and I'm wondering, where do you usually find your outfit inspirations? Is it by browsing blogs, Instagram, Pinterest, or some other way?

Andddd, I'd like to thank my favorite person for taking these pictures :).

  1. Spikes are definitely the new trend :) Love this look. I get a lot of my fashion inspiration from blogs/fashion magazines. When I see looks I like, I'll tweak it to make it more "me." Lovely blog.
