We all know the hat is wearing me.

Every time I clean, I find this hat box in my closet that has the most fabulous two hats in it! I always put them on and wonder why I never wear them. Then I put them back in the box in the closet and forget about them until the next time I clean. No more! They're too fabulous!

This is the first one. It has these fabulous black feathers dangling from the front.

I remember discovering these when I wanted to go to Las Vegas to see Dita Von Teese perform and thinking that this would be a great hat to wear to that event. I didn't go, but I do need to wear this somewhere.

And this is the second one. It has the same mesh, but this one is bejeweled and is suited better to the daytime.

I don't really know where these came from. They have just always been in my closet. But they're fantastic and deserve to be taken out on the town.

They stand when I walk through the neighborhoods.

A long time ago, I told someone that my favorite trend for this summer was anything 1970s. But then I never blogged about this trend. Until now.

As per usual, I am starting off with Jeffrey Campbell.

This is the Spectacular Spectrum Wedge. I thought these were cool -- albeit goofy -- the first time I saw them. Then I heard someone describe them as "1970s gay pride parade, summertime disco." And, that's basically the best way anything could hope to be described. $160

I have also been trawling Etsy and eBay for anything like these:

The pink ones belong to Silly, Innocent Girl.

So far, I have been unsuccessful. Keep your eyes peeled for me!

Comin' in hot.

Well, I celebrated my 21st birthday a few days ago. From what I hear, the party was pretty fantastic.

For my daytime look, I went with sequins and a tiara, as one would do. The problem with this tiara is that it's a little subtle. It doesn't scream "it's my birthday!" enough, so you just look a little weird traipsing around town. Oh, well.

For my going out ensemble of the evening, I changed into a lot of animal print. I have been subconsciously all about animal print these days.

I wore an animal print skirt from Target, a black button-up that I found in my closet, black wedges from Forever 21 and a tiny top hat from the Fairfax High Flea Market.

See, the top hat is animal print!
