For summer.


MsWinnieBaygo Sat 11-May-13 21:46:44

Nay. It looks like a lampshade.

Plus I imagine it would be difficult to see where you are actually walking when wearing it.

dexter73 Sat 11-May-13 21:48:33

It's huge! Is it for an occasion or for just out and about?

Nagoo Sat 11-May-13 21:49:13


Unless you are Margo and Jerry will be nearby to guide you everywhere.

pictish Sat 11-May-13 21:49:49

Where would you wear something like that?

pictish Sat 11-May-13 21:50:54

Negotiating doorways could be difficult.

MrsLettuce Sat 11-May-13 21:54:39


better? Ignore the first picture.


Sorry but no.

And even more no to the 2nd one.

Oh you mean the straw not the pink? Still no but a smaller no.

MrsLettuce Sat 11-May-13 21:58:25

Fuck no, not pink.

A small no is good wink

Wolfcub Sat 11-May-13 21:59:57

erm, no!

What's it FOR?

MrsLettuce Sat 11-May-13 23:38:22

Oh right, yes, for summer. As in I'm not in the UK (but not somewhere hot, just a bit warmer) and I struggle once it gets above 21 degrees. A sun hat is apparently advisable.

MrsLettuce Sat 11-May-13 23:40:22

I like these ones (I know they're odd) but was worried the first one, which looks better made was too big. I fancy big but not continent sized.

MsWinnieBaygo Sat 11-May-13 23:56:23

Yes, the first one is definitely too big grin. I can understand the need for a sunhat and whilst I'm personally not keen at all ever on that style the stripey second one that you linked is better IMO

MrsLettuce Sun 12-May-13 11:26:00

Thanks all! I appreciate your directness grin

ReluctantlyBeingYoniMassaged Sun 12-May-13 11:26:55

The first one looks like a popadom.

LowLevelWhinging Sun 12-May-13 11:32:21

surely something like this from topshop is what you're after?

Rather than a mother of the bride thing?

Are you Windy Miller? ;)

MrsLettuce Sun 12-May-13 11:48:53

Can't get the top shop link to work on my phone but if it's a floppy job then no, floppy hats prickle my otherwise under control OCD.

I LOVE windy miller's hat!

I'd say no but then no-one likes the sandals I posted so who am I to comment?

EeyoreIsh Sun 12-May-13 13:15:21

I love the top hat! But I look stupid in normal size hats as have broad shoulders. grin

TSSDNCOP Sun 12-May-13 13:17:33

mrs your post made me laugh out loud, but don't be coming here hoping for a sympathy yay on those hideous hoof covers on your thread grin

No I honestly wasn't coming on here for sympathy, just saying not to take my advice as I clearly have no sense of style grin

TSSDNCOP Sun 12-May-13 13:21:34

How about this from Accesorize with this wrapped round it from Oasis?

TSSDNCOP Sun 12-May-13 13:27:03

Then again the real deal

LynetteScavo Sun 12-May-13 13:29:05

"Unless you are Margot" hahahahah,grin

Yes, the Accessorize one is quite sweet.

Or this

MrsLettuce Sun 12-May-13 15:22:10

Am at a children's party (shan't tell you what I'm wearing wink) and can't get links to work on my phone. But I'll check 'em later.

Am fancying the mrs leadbetter look though. have a desperate desire for this.

Good job I'm not looking for validation hey!

TSSDNCOP Sun 12-May-13 15:37:41

Then you'll be wanting this Mrs L grin

TallulahBetty Sun 12-May-13 15:40:06

Reminds me of in "Friends" when everyone shelters under Rachel's hat in the rain grin

I don't dislike it, mind..

MrsLettuce Sun 12-May-13 16:01:02

Ooh, that link worked (damn phone). I do fancy a turban or two, yeah. Am making do with Hilda Ogden sequence scarf tying. Sans rollers, natch.

MrsLettuce Sun 12-May-13 16:02:08

Sequence = esque

BinksToEnlightenment Sun 12-May-13 16:06:51

Beautiful dress. And yes, the hat may be a bit much but imagine how brilliant it would be if you managed to carry it off? I say go for it.

GibberTheMonkey Sun 12-May-13 16:11:37

I keep pondering this one
Like for a year
I just wonder if I'll look like a knob

MrsLettuce Sun 12-May-13 17:53:02

Freed from the screeming hordes at last, so links

Whinging's top shop hat - very nice but not my bag. ALso get would up by floppiness.
TSSDNCOP's #1 - OK but too small and run of the mill. Will indeed be adding scarves as and when.
TSSDNCOP's #2 - No, no and thrice no. As above.
Remus' cloche - I like that but it's too dull, sweet and small. Am after a good cloche for next winter though.

GibberTheMonkey - Go for it! You won't look nobish at all is an utterly standard sun hat. Nice.

MrsLettuce Sun 12-May-13 17:53:28

wound up by floppiness.

MrsLettuce Sun 12-May-13 18:14:10

Oh, and I keep meaning to say: Am somewhat nonplussed by the references to 'pink' and 'stripey' confused. Number 1 is a massive version of number 2 (which is still big) but both are plain raffia thus.

Not worried about being able to carry it off!
