Anthropologie's Minim Rancher brimmed hat. I purchased the camel-coloured version.
It's the first thing I've bought (apart from, you know, food and AT&T sim cards) since arriving last Sunday night.
I'm not really allowed to buy anything apart from a proper, practical winter coat until: 1) I've settled into my sublet next week and stopped cluttering up V&C's studio apartment, and 2) I've got a regular source of income.
The second one could take a while though, and so to keep sane, I'll buy the odd thing here and there. I'm in New York, after all, and I'm a believer in moderation, rather than the cyclical boom and bust that you often get when trying to abstain from something to the point of ridiculousness.
And for $58, I was happy to treat myself. Besides, it has a practical purpose: the weather already has a crispness to it and it's only going to get colder, and the hat will keep my head warm!
