I don't know how this could have slipped my mind, but I forgot to mention that I bought the H&M raspberry beret - the Prince-lyrics-inspired hat I mentioned here.
I got it on the hottest day in August, so I'm just starting to wear it now. But as it so happens, I have the perfect occasion for it to make its official debut. My friend decided she wanted to be more educated about the deep thinkers of the world, so she is starting a Philosophers Club. It is sort of like a book club, except we will read philosophy and muse and ponder and mull and all the things that go along with that.
We'll meet in a coffee shop, I will wear my raspberry beret, one friend will use a cigarette holder, another friend will smoke cloves. We all may or may not wear black turtlenecks: haven't decided yet. First up on the reading list, the works of Danish theologian Søren Kierkegaard! (PS - my iPhone auto-filled in Kierkegaard's name, it is so darn smart).
PS again: And just for fun...
