Guest Post: Does anyone want to go swimming?

No, I didn’t think so and for three very good reasons.

1) Its too cold
2) we’ve had enough rain
3) And finally, would it mean we’d have to wear these ridiculous flower caps?

In the 1960’s it was the height of swimwear fashion to be seen with the brightest coloured swimming cap. This is great, but we aren’t in the 1960’s or worried that when we walk the streets we might suddenly want to chase a duck into the nearest canal.

Apparently this is ASOS’ answer to the market, with their own version, the ‘premium flower hat’.
I would not spend a fiver on this even for a fancy dress evening out.
Not even mentioning hat hair and the weirdly shaped head. With this hat her head looks like poofy bush.

So again, listen to my plea, just because the trend setters decide that certain items are fashionable, think about it before buying.

Hehe, loved it. That was written by Susie's hilarious housemate. Hope we'll be hearing more from her! This is my last scheduled post, so normal blogging should resume from Monday.

Yeah, I'm not really a hat person because of the hat hair problem. That last pic is hilarious! And thankfully it is warm enough to go swimming in London at the moment!

I agree! A few seasons ago, remember the glove on a headband? I actually saw it in a few stores...crazy!
Runways are meant to be a bit outrageous...not everything is supposed to be worn...

Great post! Love the viking hat! Haha!

Thanks for stopping by!

Nice post, I agree with her on 'think before buy'. I love to write about fashion trends but I certainly don't follow them all. I think this hat is kinda cute though:p
