i recently realized that etsy, despite propagating aggressively awful 'upcycling' (hipster cousin of shabby-chic treatment) does have some good vintage deals.
how cool is this hat, http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22014636 for less than $30. too bad i already bought a skirt suit for $36(!).
it is like pretend winter right now, this evening i had dinner in front of a blazing fire and listened to the wind howl outside.
