Obsessed: VOGUE Cap

I insta-stalked this VOGUE cap by Nasty Gal yesterday and I'm completely obsessed with it! I was uber-sad to find out that it was sold out :( But, I'll wait patiently for them to re-stock lol! How awesome is this cap? Very fashionable and so appropriate for any occasion especially since I'm still swooning over the 900+ pages of fashion in the September issue of Vogue Magazine.  
Hope everyone is having a fabulous week, I'm back from vacay....I'll be posting pictures tomorrow :)

Favorite Quotes:

"When I first moved to New York and I was totally broke, sometimes I bought Vogue instead of dinner. I found it fed me more."

"Some labels are best left in the closet"

"I like my money right where I can see it: hanging in my closet."

"Shopping is my cardio" (Oh, girl I feel you!)

"...These shoes pinch my feet, but I love them. I'm in a financial cul-de-sac!"

"Men I may not know, but shoes—shoes I know."

 "Every once in a while, a girl has to indulge herself."

"Women come to New York for the two Ls: labels and love."

"They say nothing lasts forever; dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style."

"The fact is, sometimes it's really hard to walk in a single woman's shoes. That's why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun."

"I will never be the woman with the perfect hair, who can wear white and not spill on it."

Have a Happy Thursday Everyone!! :)
