The Perfect Wide Brim Hat + Cards


All images via The Fashionisto / Video via Coute Que Coute by Dior Homme
I have shared a few of these images on my blog before, but the search is still on. I've been looking for the perfect wide brim hat for ages. With the seasons changing and the layers piling on, now seems like the perfect time to have one. I've been holding my breath hoping I'll be able to find one thrifting but it's starting to seem like my luck won't be great. If anyone has seen any good, relatively priced ones online... LET ME KNOW!! In the meantime I'll just have to watch this video on repeat and pretend I'm decked out head-to-toe in Dior Homme. Livin' the dream, literally.

While I'm at it I wanted to share my latest little DIY project. For the last while my blog has been coming up in conversation and it was always such a hassle trying to direct people to my website. I can tell them the name over and over but the likelihood of them remembering seemed small. I figured the best way to let people know was to make myself some business cards. Obviously, knowing me, I couldn't just take the easy way out and order regular business cards. No, I had to do something at least a little bit creative with it. So, I went onto Simon Stamp and ordered myself two stamps: One of the tooth logo I've been using on my blog, and the other of my contact information. The stamps arrived and they are perfect! I love the idea of being able to mix up the stamp color for the tooth logo on the back. For the first batch I opted for a red tooth with simple black font. The stamps are quite relively priced especially considering I can now make an infinite amount of cards. So...what do you think!?

I'm a girl and I am waiting for the day that I'd decked out in Dior Homme. Le sigh. That's a great idea for a business card. It fits since you love DIYs. I love the look of them. I can tell that the font is Courier New. My favorite font. Hahaha.

Such a good idea! I've checked out business card printing websites before but they always have lame layouts or print them on weird material :(

i would very much like to have one of your business cards ^___^
Love the blog!

If a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound? Likewise, if no one is buying, does the concept of "selling" apply?
