Then and now. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I don’t own a ton of “throwback” photos of myself. So, for a change, my Thursday segment (for now) will be called “Then & Now Thursday”.
Shown here, recently sporting a new cap I got for Christmas, and a “Tierra Vista Tigers” trucker hat. This already raises so many questions, doesn’t it?
Tierra Vista was my elementary school. Why branded trucker hats? I would love for someone to chime in on this for me, so by all means – anyone in Oxnard who was part of the marketing team for this item, please leave a comment!
Why am I wearing it? Well, my sense of style came from somewhere, now didn’t it? Clearly, my blue floral print blouse with red ribbing accents called for a blue and white team logo’d, ill-fitting hat. Also, I want to say that I was attempting to do homework out on the patio this particular day in sunny southern California, so perhaps that bill…fit the bill. (I just giggled on the inside.)
I don’t own too many hats. This black cap is new to me as of Christmas 2013, and I adore it. I don’t wear it too often, but when I have, I’ve been called two things (to my face): “very Asian” and “chic”. I’ll call those both compliments.
I do, however, wear many “hats”. I spend the majority of my time as an “Assistant” (by title.) As Merriam-Webster would define it, I spend most of my time as an Enabler. Thusly:
“…one that enables another to achieve an end; especially: one who enables another to persist in self-destructive behavior by providing excuses or by making it possible to avoid the consequences of such behavior”
Hmm. I like the trucker hat better.
Anyway, like most I know, I’m an avid multi-tasker, and there are are many “hats” in my wardrobe.
The Wife Hat – this one would be pretty, and youthful, and no – you can never borrow it.
The Musician/Artist Hat – this one would be sparkly (but not studded), and well-fitting. Mostly stylish. Mostly.
The Family-Gal Hat – this one would be sturdy, industrial, and would match everything.
The Geek/Nerd Hat – this would likely have a million tarnished logos and a collection of attached tchotchkes.
The Outdoorsy Hat – barely worn. Sorry.
Oh, so many. I’m not very fashionable, but as seen in this photo – I am very happy sporting very different looks (and assisting you along the way.)
