I knew coming into fashion week from past years that I could pretty much get by with wearing whatever I wanted to. What I didn’t expect is to get a call all the way from my mother in Texas laughing and saying “What in the world is that thing on your head?” based on a previous posted photo. Strike One. By now, I’m quite used to this reaction when I attempt to pull this type of a slightly outrageous outfit off in the midwest, but I seriously didn’t expect the word to spread so quickly to Texas. Strike Two. Though I tried to explain my new found love for Hipsterism, my mother quickly informed me that she wasn’t fond of the 70′s… Strike Three. So I figured while NYC you can only do as New Yorkers would do and since there was no bagel in sight I decided to instead… “forget-ah-about-it!”
When you’re in New York your fashion choices are compared to the bum on the street and the cross dresser standing across from it, anything in between flies as socially acceptable. So I tested out that theory…
