Once upon a time, long about 15 years ago, a certain blog writer was obsessed with Irish culture. She attended a Catholic high school where the sports teams were called the 'Lil Irish. She worshipped Notre Dame and longed to attend college there. She wore a claddagh ring. And she bought* this ill-advised hat from an Irish import store while visiting Canada.

The hat is actually of really great quality. It's 100% wool, but also, sadly, 100% weirdly shaped.

I apparently had no idea when I bought it that the hat made me look like an Irish Chef Boyardee.

I wore this hat faithfully in both high school and college, and then I proudly flew my fashion freak flag when I visited Ireland after graduating from college and basically wore this hat the entire time I was there.

Funny, though. I didn't see one Irish person with a hat anything like mine. I'm sure the Irish found my hat as bizarre then as I do now.

    I'm with L. and Shannon - and I hadn't even read their comments before I hit 'comment' to tell you the exact same thing. You look so much like Karrie in that shot! I thought it was her at first.

    Marie-LOL. If she wants to!

    Sher-Thanks! I used to think it was a lot cuter than I do now!

    L, Shannon, and Anne-How funny. Yeah, I think it's the eyes. :)
