What better to do until the contact lens situation is resolved than hide under a lovely hat from New Urban (they ship to Ireland and they also have a US site).
That first one may be a bit too mother-of-the-bride for popping to the post office, but I love it.
And the stylish black hat, in combination with the fashion victim spectacles, will get me into vaudeville, which is what I'm going to desert blogging for if I don't win a bunch of giveaways pretty sharply. Did you see that Julie at Being Ruby won three (THREE) in the same day? So bring on the handsewn aprons, the green tea candles and the little felted elves; I must be due some giveaway luck.
