Day 8: Raspberry Beret
I know it’s a bit cliche’, but I have been on the hunt for a raspberry beret. ” You know the kind you find in a second-hand store.” Okay, I took it a little too far. I am a huge Prince fan, all my big sister’s doing of course. She took me to my first concert when I was eight. A bit young for such a provocative concert; but as a musician myself, I had a strong appreciation for Prince’s musicianship.
Lately, I have been wanting a raspberry beret, merely because the color is fun. I ran across one that would have been perfect had it not a cluster of felted flowers across the front brim. While looking for my latest obsession, a Louis scarf, I ran across this purple cable knit beret with raspberry piping and monogram. The hat is 100% wool. How many times have you heard that lately? To quote Kat Williams, “Not neva.” My mom would be proud. I would have my head covered and in 100% wool. I think this is a nice substitute for Prince’s muse. The Columbia Beret may be purchased from Louis Vuitton for $ 328.00 in Cassis, Rouge, et Gris (Rapsberry, Red, and Gray).
