Though I complain to no end about how cold the city is, I kind of look forward to it. In the large scheme of things, we only have a short period of time when it’s freezing out. During this time, I take full advantage of the low temps and high winds by pulling out my favorite winter hat.
Traditionally worn by Russian Troopers, the Ushanka is also known as the Ear Hat. My hat was purchased at Red Square, Russia over 10yrs ago. One of my ex-boyfriends ( my favorite ex ;> ) brought this back from holiday. Too bad he only got to wear it once. Thanks A.S., I think it suites me better.
Now I know a lot of people are against fur…. not this girl. Nothing like the real thing. Faux fur looks so synthetic and in most cases, so inexpensive. Faux fur has no durability or warmth and isn’t that the purpose of having fur.
Just the opinion of a girl who wears fur, leather and eats red meat.
