It seemed like so much effort and a waste of time to piece together a costume, and if I was going to do make a Halloween costume, then I ... >

The Big Black Floppy Hat

So for us fashionistas out there, we all have the “little black dress” (maybe multiples in some cases).  Well why not also have the “big black floppy hat”?
