I’ve never been big on hats – but I think I finally found something that works for me. The baggy stop of the hat makes it easy for me to tuck my large amounts of curly hair underneath it without too much squishing. It also makes it a bit more stylish, in addition to being a warm and cozy transitional cap.
I always wondered why girls in fairy tales got lost in the woods–it almost always seems to be their own fault, too. Little Red strayed from the path, Alice followed a silly rabbit, and Snow White fled to the woods to escape her evil stepmother. Somehow these ladies are incapable of not getting lost. This cap possesses no magical powers that would help these ladies stay find their way, but at least they’d be lost in style.
