We're Obsessed: Black Feathered Cadet Cap by Ryan Wilde
I first met Brooklyn-based milliner Ryan Wilde one rainy September afternoon, when Emily Richmond and I fell so deeply in love with her and her two cutie-cute buds, Valerie and Georgia, that we absolutely could not help but make a pseudo-slumber party-esque video with them. Soon after, Ryan, Georgia and Val opened up TRIA (the best store of all time) together; I am heartbroken to report that TRIA is set to close in the near future, which is such a huge tragedy I can't even deal with it. However: every dark raincloud has a silver lining, my children! The good news is that Ryan Wilde is set to open up her very own showroom this April; it will be located at 109 Broadway in Bushwicky-Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
I was just in New York this past weekend (I had a lovely trip, in case you're wondering), and decided that purchasing a handmade, one-of-a-kind Ryan Wilde chapeau would probably be the best investment of my life. I was so right about this one! My RW cadet cap harkens back to a finer time (said "finer time" being "the glorious days of olde"). Just as all dudes should drink Sazeracs, all ladies should wear hats, and carry them around in hatboxes (it felt really awesome to be carrying a hatbox around Port Authority bus terminal before catching a gnarly Greyhound this past Sunday). I have already worn my hat thrice- it makes me feel so spesh!
I will totally rock this hat anytime I ever have to do anything remotely formal, but what I am particularly stoked about is pairing it with jeans and a ratty t-shirt while running out to the grocery store or getting coffee or whatevs. This hat represents everything that I love about getting dressed: this hat means you care. Ryan Wilde cares, and so do I, and so should you. In conclusion: HAPPINESS IS A WARM FEATHERED CAP.
