The above is true. Something having to do with having a head that doesn't fit hats right (read: I have a big head and beanies don't count). Well I thought so anyway. I've changed my mind about hats now and this is my first baby from Accessorize. I had my eye on it for a week or 2 so last Friday when I had the opportunity during lunchtime, I went and I purchased. Both a stylish alternative to an umbrella and an awesome compliment magnet, I must say I am quite happy with my new relationship with hats.
