There used to be a woman in my old neighborhood in NYC who wore one of these faux coon skin caps everyday. I thought she was so cool and I was fascinated by the idea of choosing one piece of clothing to identify yourself. So when I found this hat at the general store in Historic Cold Spring Village I snatched it up. I thought I would try wearing it for a week or two but I only lasted one day. I realized that my identity is about wearing something different all the time. But when I do wear this hat people get a big kick out of it. I feel like a kid on my way to a treehouse party or to a campfire for delicious hot s'mores!
Of course I have this vintage sweater jacket (with a zipper!) to go with it.
