This is not a test

This is not a test . . . this is not a test . . . this is not a dress . . .

I’m not mad, the sun’s just in my eyes.  I couldn’t help participating in a DIY Jil Sander veiled beanie with some online guidance from honestly wtf and nitrolicious.  The only thing I did different was to trim off the end of the veil netting . . . the thick black thread was too contrasty.

This is the perfect accessory for me right now.  I’m in the awkward process of growing out my hair and not only does the beanie hide my lack of haircut/style, but holds my bangs out of my eyes and allows me to see.  The past few weeks made me realize I’ve taken sight for granted.  P sez seeing is overrated.  Then he bumped into a wall.

    Oh man I hear you with respect to the haircut issue. Unfortunately my naturally curly (short) hair doesn’t sit well under a beanie, which are my bad-hair-day go-to usually. I’m trying to heat treat my hair as little as possible which means a lot of slicking it back into ponytails with tonnes of hairspray to hold down my unruly growing-out fringe. Worst.

    Love the touch of the veiling; such a fun DIY.
