BACK INTO HATS // VOTE NO ON PIPA & SOPA


I found these pictures from last NYFW and they made me kind of miss wearing hats. I feel like ever since I've chopped my hair off, I've been wearing head toppers less and less. Maybe it's because I feel too much like a dude or something. Who knows? Whatever the reason, it's a stupid reason, because hats make you feel cool. And what's not cool about that?

But let me tell you what's not cool. SOPA and PIPA. These two bills, Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, if passed, will censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA. And hey, this includes us. What would happen to our little online community of inspiration and fashion enthusiasm if these two bills were to go through? How would I make it through an entire work day without my favorite tunes blasting through my headphones thanks to Youtube? With Wikipedia no more, no longer would I be able to effortlessly get a quick little lesson on ancient Indonesian culture, the ingredients in Vietnamese noodle soups, or whatever else that randomly comes to mind (yeah, I Wikipedia about food a lot). We've all worked too hard and shared too much to let this happen.

The Senate will begin voting on January 24th. Please let them know how you feel. Click here to sign this petition urging Congress to vote NO on PIPA and SOPA before it is too late.
