now I have a bowler hat can I be olly murs gf?

Posted by Emma Salter On 17:41

So you may have seen my recent eBay purchases post which had a similar hat to this in black on it. Well, this is the same hat, but the eBay seller in Hong Kong decided he didn't want me to have the black version and be like everyone else, so sent me a wine red coloured bowler hat instead without asking my permission. At first I was angry, then I tried it on and thought, "oh wait I actually like this" and decided not to leave the seller negative feedback, as he subsequently has added this new favourite accessory into my life. The wine red bowler hat (mmm wine)

I wasn't sure at first, as wine red was very 'in' last season. I remember wanting a similar coloured coat and trousers from Topshop but never took the plunge, I was definitely too late for the burgandy phase of winter. But at least I can save this one if ever it comes back into fashion. 
Thinking about it, black is the safer choice BUT everyones got a black bowler hat now right? (except me.. sob) so I'm deciding this is 'the new thing'. I will wear my unwanted wine red bowler hat with pride! It did only cost me £4.98 after all...

(I really don't understand how the Chinamen made any money from this! It was sent airmail and delivered within a week, crazy!) If you'd like one the wine red and black are currently sold out, but save the seller and I'm sure they will come back into stock very soon, they have other colours too! I'm tempted by the pale pink and the camel version, but I'm currently watching a camel coat on eBay so maybe too much camel is... too much.  

In other news, I've decided to smarten up my appearance (hence the hat) and that goes without saying about my Bestival wristband that still lingers on my wrist. 

It's been 7 months since I was rocking out to Friendly Fires, rapping along to Wiley and getting low to Stevie Wonder, it's time I let go. I finally took the plunge and cut it off. 
After reading Robyn's post about the Bestival Benefit I actually shed a tear whilst reading it, anyone that went to Bestival last year or has attended a festival in general should have a read, it's so upsetting and makes me thankful that I am still here but my heart really does go out to the families of the ones that died in the crash. It's amazing what Rob da Bank has put together in aid of the ones lost. 
Truely heartfelt! Sorry to end on a down note :( but here's a song to uplift you all...
