MakerWear On

Disclosure: The hats shown in the following post were provided for my honest review, the opinions and styling suggestions shared below are my own. 

After coming back from New York, I didn’t only change as a person, my style changed as well. It became more laid back, more relaxed, more hip.

So when an opportunity to style MakerWear hats came along, I gladly agreed. MakerWear is all about artists. Only the best designs get made – “curated crowd sourcing” – is what takes place when they want to bring new fashion to market.

Having trouble accessorizing lately, I am also stepping out of my comfort zone and trying on new pieces with this style challenge.

Bacon Tail Maker: Deedee Lazuardi

A screen printer and skateboarder so punk, he wouldn’t even tell us if he actually likes bacon.

I am definitely happy with the quality of the hats. I especially like the Moshi Moshi, it is by far my favorite! I really thought I’d like Put a Bird on It more, but the vizor is too wide for me. I wish I could get away with keeping it flat, but I will have to bend it. And of course Sam thinks I am in a gang now 😉

What did you think of my pics? Which designs would you pick?

Happy Thursday! So excited to be brining another Thrift Style Thursday post to you today along with all the other girls! We are also excited to have Alex of Snippetswithalex and The Fair Trade Fashionistas join us today!

You can never have too many shoes, purses… too much clothes, or make up…  If you ask me, you can never have too many coats! I learned it the hard way, the good way, living in Minnesota. 

Coats and outerwear are one of the first sections I check out when I go to a thrift store. Here is why:

– I am always looking for a new coat,

– I am always looking for a new VINTAGE coat,

– I am always looking for a new WARMER coat!

It took me a while to decide which coat to style for today’s post, but I settled on this vintage one, that I bought a couple years ago at Salvation Army. It’s not only vintage, but it was made here in Minneapolis, plus the festive red color puts me in a holiday mood, and I am so excited the holidays are right around the corner! So from the oversized pockets, to the side zippers, to the missing buttons, this coat has as much character, personality and history, as I do.

Happy Thursday everyone, and don’t forget to check out every one else’s posts:
