Disbanded

Feeling inspired by Stacey, I snipped the band and feather off of my Albertus Swanepoel for Target leopard fedora, which makes it a dupe for the J.Crew version, and therefore easier to look like a person who would spend $178 on a hat. However, it is currently on final sale, and with the extra 40% off you can snap it up for $60. (Which is still three times more expensive than the Target version).

I'm also wearing some fleece lined tights, a gift from Alex! They are nice and cozy, thanks Alex!

Tomorrow Megan and I are going to the New York launch of Karl Lagerfeld for net-a-porter, anyone else going to be there?
I'm kinda freaking out over what to wear... I'm thinking leopard dress at the moment.

Sounds so fun! Don't worry, I'm sure you will look dynamite as usual. I love the pink skirt and, as usual on you and Stacey, the hat. And fleece lined tights sound perfectly cozy!

Bre said...

Don't you just love fleece tights! They are the very best! I like the pink with the leo. print. It's like the spring version of red. Have fun at Lagerfeld show tomorrow.

The hat looks great, and I love that you paired it with a hot pink skirt - my new favorite thing is wearing that fedora with bright colors!

I love this whole look on you - and nice work with the hat! Also, I so wish I were going with you and Megan tomorrow. And the very least we need a bloggers lunch and shopping afternoon soon (before I move away, sniff sniff).

The hat looks great sans-band. I love the skirt it looks like it could be pretty cold but with fleece lined tights it probably isn't that bad. Those tights sound like a really fantastic idea!

Ali said...

Hot pink against black always looks so gooooooood. And fleece tights? They sound amazing. And warm. And like they serve a function other than fashion. Awesome.

How clever you are, doing that to your hat. It looks exactly like it and I can't even tell the difference. Success. >:D

CessOviedo said...

Black and pink is one of my favorite combos, but the leo hat totally made it fabulous! Loveeeeee it!

I just love that fedora! I am all for leopard at the moment! so I think you should go with that leo dress too ;)

Have fun at the event!

jess said...

Fleece-lined tights are the best thing for winter. I love the jacket.

geetabix said...

I love the pink skirt!

rlutz said...

I love how you styled the bright pink skirt with keeping everything else stark black...except for that fabulous hat!!
I definitely think you cannot go wrong with the leopard dress tomorrow...have fun!

Amber said...

I think I prefer the hat minus the feather. Too much animal paraphernalia throws me off.

The Closet Shopper said...

No matter what you decide to wear, you will look fantastic.

I really love that fedora and you look so feminine with and edge. My favorite kind of ensemble.

xo,
Tracy

silvergirl said...

E said...

I don't think I've ever seen a fedora like that! How cool!

Rebecca said...

$60 is still way more than I would spend on a hat. Your Target version looks just as good.

JennySue said...

I'm so into fedoras right now- they make any outfit look super chic and pulled together. And the fact yours is animal print, makes it that much cooler! Very cute blog, I'm a new follower of yours now!

would love for you to check my beauty blog out if you get a moment, I'm a mommy with a makeup problem...http://www.jennysuemakeup.com

Alex Elizabeth said...

Have funnnnn! I love this hat with or without the band. And I'm glad the tights are good. I haven't worn mine yet, although I've the over the knee socks many times.

simplychic said...

i LOVE that first picture!!!

sounds like super fun event. can't wait to hear about it...

Style, She Wrote said...

Great re-work of the Target hat and have fun at the Lagerfeld opening! xo style, she wrote

Jessica said...

Without the band, the hat really is a dead ringer for the J.Crew version. But more importantly, fleece-lined tights sound heavenly.

(And, yes, leopard is always a good idea! Have fun!)

Terri said...

Can't wait to read your write up on the show!

A Stylized Hysteria said...

great minds think alike! I just bought this hat on ebay (since it's sold out on Target) with the plan to take the band off. I just hope I look as good in the hat as you do!

DaniellaBella said...

Lady, you are cool personified.

Jenn said...

Love the leopard fedora! I haven't incorporated hats into my repertoire, but after seeing your outfit photos I'm beginning to think I'm missing out!

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...
