In over my head, it's for the best.

I was so into all the boater hats that were all over the place last summer, and even bought one in H&M, but it was huge and ridiculous, so I returned it. But I felt sad, because I wanted one, and then I went to Glastonbury, and they were everywhere, and I was sad. So sad. I get unnecessarily attached to hats.

This year, though, boaters seem a little passé. So when I spotted this gorgeous little number in River Island, my eyes lit up. I LOVE cloche hats - I have a lovely red one that I picked up in the winter sales (which I haven't actually worn yet, but it looks so jaunty hanging off the end of my bedpost that I don't care!) - but I never thought about a straw one before. And now I need it. Now.


Um. Please?

  4. I am JUST browsing on the river island site at the moment and squeeing over so much nice stuff, I am 100% amazed at how nice it's become. Long gone are the dodgy sequins and diamante!

  8. I had to wear an amazing green velvet cloche hat in a production of Bugsy Malone but because my head is so HUGE we had to cut it up the back and I just had to be careful not to turn around. Sad times.
