Wear a Knit Beret
I love quotes (especially ones by Vince Lombardi), and I find myself googling "random quotes" way too often. I stumbled across this quote, "sometimes I wake up and I think I should start wearing a beret, but I don't do it. One day I'm gonna, though. You bet your ass, I will have a beret on. That's ridiculous, but it's true. I always fight with wearing a beret".-Mitch hedberg
This quote applies to my life from deciding whether today is the day I tell ---- that I like him to whether today is the day I raise my hand and participate in my math class to whether I should take a fashion risk and wear something completely out there to school. I always find myself fighting with these things, and when it comes to fashion it's always about head wear.
When scarves as belt became popular, I struggled with the idea of wearing one as a belt, and I finally did it, and it felt good, but then wearing them as head bands became popular and I struggled with that idea, and it took a while to finally wear one.
Now I'm struggling with the idea of wearing berets, and that quotes applies to me directly. I've been doing some research, and I found these as inspirations. The only problem is, I have short hair, so it's going to be hard to achieve these looks from instyle.com. I don't always like trends-especially trends like knit berets which I think is going to fade in months- but I think everyone should buy one. They can really spice up a simple outfit. Selma Blair's outfit is a great example. fashionunder100.com has great ideas on how to achieve her look. Check http://fashionunder100.blogspot.com/2008/01/selma-blairs-look-for-9934.html
so yea-take risks, get a knit beret.
