I love this hat, but I have a slight reservation about two things. This type of hat works very well on women who have a slender facial structure. Now, I'm not trying to upset anyone by this statement. My reasons are as follows. One, the size and shape of the hat could make you look much larger to people who have not seen you without the hat on. The second is the fabric used to make this hat. It is very heavy looking and that's because it made out of wool. This would be the perfect summer hat for San Fransisco, paired with knee high Chanel boots. Or I could see this as a hat one might wear when she really does not want the world to be able to see her. If you have the face for this item GET IT!
