Picasso on Safari

So I tried out my new (Walgreens) fedora this way last week (hence the self-portrait: no Cath to take my photo for me!). I wore my hat to work a few times and each morning my boss would say "Indiana Jones!" as I walked through the door. Not exactly the look I'm going for, but I would have been more surprised had he said "very Sienna Miller-esque!" As for the Picasso influence, that's all me and my art historian tendencies to put my major to some kind of semi-practical use. P was fond of black and white stripes, and just to make clear I'm not his biggest fan, I defiantly wear red and white stripes. Hah.
Picasso modeling for Apple (posthumously).
Here's the breakdown of the Picasso-on-Safari outfit:

hat: Walgreens
shirt: Proenza Schouler for Target
vest: vintage (Cath's closet)
jersey scarf: Gap
jeans: Cheap Monday
boots: AE

love the first shot! nice use of framing with the mirror!
i do have a slight fetish for buying cheap accessories from drugstores.
they have such great variety.i feel like a kid in a candy store.
stripes can look so cliched and tired. nicely done and not too trendy.

I saw fedoras at my local grocer and was so close to getting one! I should have because they ended up disappearing the next week!

Very cute way to wear the hat :)

Fine job, missie! Yor hat and hair, though covered by the dslr, looks very kate moss-esque. Lovely indeed.

Ellastica, isn't that mirror gorgeous? Cath just got it.

Secretista, schucks- thanks! I'll try to build on it then ;)
Thank you so much for the mention on your awesome blog on Sunday- loved your outfit!

Ediot- it totally makes the outfit, doesn't it?

Eli, thank you!

Caroline, yup Walgreens! I can't believe they still use those apple posters ;)

Something Picasso, I held off a week to get mine too and was so worried that all the church-going men of atlanta would have scooped them up!

Katie, thank you so much! I agree with Secretista too!

Lynn, a kate moss compliment?! Love those! merci beaucoup!
