19 7 08

I’m not usually a big hat person, not because I don’t like them, quite the opposite in fact, it’s just that they never suit me! No matter what style or shape, they always seem to look rather peculiar perched on top of my head. I’m not sure if it’s an odd shape, or maybe something to do with it not going with my hairstyle or what! Anyway, one hat that I am determined to wear is a straw hat, because it reminds me of men’s fashion from the 1920’s, especially the boater hat style.

I found a couple online, but haven’t tried any on in person yet, so fingers crossed!

Comptoir des Cotonniers £73

Next £10

Rokit £26

Ooo I like the urban outfitters one a lot. Though I also love the idea of having a slightly battered second-hand one - that's on my wishlist at the mo.

I have one identical to the Comptoir des Cotonniers one, except it was so so so cheap and from a Spanish supermarket!

Oooo, you should definitely try a boater- Coco Chanel was a big fan so look up photos of her for inspiration. I think it's an easy style to wear. Make sure you post what you have bought!

I didn't have to sign a contract, but my dentist had to legally tell me about it.

He took xrays and saw that the nerve was far so it would be fine had it been closer he would have sent me to a special surgeon.
