I have [non-aggressively] been on a mission to build my hat collection. I feel like it is the easiest way to add a statement to any outfit without trying too hard.
I found this wide-brimmed guatemalan-palm hat late one night while browsing and building my usual online shopping carts. I had originally found it on one of those super trendy stores only to find that it was sold out. And so my quest began and my non-aggressive mission became quite vigorous. I even went as far as zooming in on one of the product photos to find the brand name [it was one of those stores that tries to keep it's novelty brands hush hush.] I was quite pleased when I found out that it was one of those wholesaler hat companies that could give two craps about their marketing and/or image [or website design for that matter.] Jackpot! I love those kinds of finds.
Now I am not usually into fedoras [I find most of them silly and non-functional because the brim is so shorty] but I am keen when it has a wide brim. Try 3 honkin' inches on this bad boy! The older I get the more purchases serve as multi-use. In this case, style and sun protection.
And so I scored the perfect straw-like hat. Exactly the kind that needed to be added to my hat collection. I think plenty more hats will be purchased from Sun Body in the near future.
