The title of this post will probably mean something to you if you are a hardcore fash-blog reader as Blue Floppy Hat aka Drusilla has been a long time reader of Style Bubble.  It therefore bought a smile to my face when I picked up this ‘Blue Floppy Hat’ (such a blog-nerd I am that those three words need to be in inverted commas with caps) in the Topshop sale (sadly sold out online now), because I a) am now in posession of a hat that will brighten up most dull days and b) it will remind me of the intelligent and complimentary commentary of a wonderful fellow blogger.

I don’t normally wear new things straight away but today, combined with a Marc Jacobs AW07-8 palette of blues, oranges and yellows and some layering fit for a windy day, it really had to be done.

    I love this, all the colors subtly compliment each other, and the hat is pretty.

    Ha ha! A blogger-tribute hat.I love it. I was just thinking that I’m really in the mood to wear my white floppy Yoko Ono hat lately.

  17. Anonymous says:

    aww you look so adorable!
    and the colour of the hat is brilliant (:

  18. bronwyn says:

    This is really a fantastic look. Full points and top score for originality, creativity and colour combinations. Lovely!

  19. rollergirl says:

    It’s adorable! And I like how you always look like you just stepped out of a magazine. Those things shouldn’t work together but on you, they do. (Sorry if that sounds like a back-handed compliment, it’s meant to be genuine!)

  20. anna says:

    ohhh that hat is awesome! where is the shirt from? i think i need it.

  21. Classic look, the colours really do complement well. The top is “on point”. Better without the jacket methinks but then it is winter.

  22. Modeandco says:

    wAOUU Ilike your style!!!

  23. chloe says:

    Ah, i’m in love. Gorgeous outfit. I looooove the shirt and the boots!

  24. vegimite. says:


  25. Ah, thanks Susie…that was really sweet of you (and very unexpected). I’m touched (but I should probably tell you- neither of those is my real name).
    The hat is beautiful, that colour looks like it’d be the perfect thing to cheer up grey days (plus, it goes very nicely with the blouse). And I love the bow at your waist- it’s such a fab, quirky detail.

  26. And I must say it- that’s one of the nicest compliments anyone’s ever given me 🙂

  27. headmistress says:

    lol, both the outfit and the tribute are sweet, and those yellow tights! I could eat yellow tights. I pondered this hat this very weekend, but my head is too small for it. and sometimes electric blue is better left to more capable others 🙂

  28. susie_bubble says:

    Thanks guys! The top alas… is vintage…. Urban Outfitters vintage section to be precise…
    The belt is a self made and here’s a post about it:
    Drusilla: Real name or not, my hat will always remind me of you anyhow!
    Headmistress: I must say, the hat is a tad too big for me too but on a non-gusty day, it’s all a-ok.

  29. Diana says:

    Lol…I almost bought that hat as well…:)

  30. selina says:

    what a lush blue, the mustard tights with it couldn’t look better!

  31. Wow, this has to be one of my favourite outfits of yours. The colours all look fantastic together! I’m ever so impressed.
    I have a lovely big black floppy hat from Topshop that I got last year, and I really enjoy wearing that at the moment. Do you find that people tend to stare at yours though? People seem to find mine quite comical!

  32. the hat is no nice!! you look lovely

  33. atelier says:

    It looks cool

  34. the hat is so cute! you look lovely, like one of those little girls who play in the park

  35. Maria says:

    I really like it, you can mix many colurs in a outfit!

  36. Dean says:

    The colour of those tights is almost edible.

  37. Libertygirl says:

    Grrreat hat. And thanks for the inspiration on yr comment: I decided to write the real backstory of the bag on the blog entry. LLG xx

  38. lauren says:

    ever since i saw serena van der woodsen rocking the floppy hat on a recent episode of gossip girls i knew it was time to bring it back

  39. lady coveted says:

    that’s the kind of blue that never goes out of style…
    and what’s this plaid? it’s awesome!

  40. jen says:

    Oh I want one just like it, love the color!

  41. Stevie says:

    Hoorah, an ode to BFH! I love D’s blog.
    It’s rather funny how blogging is beginning to make such an impact. Of course, naturally, this would be the case considering that most of us ARE bloggers, but it’s funny how we become “friends” with other bloggers, and aware of a blogger’s style in such a way that an item of clothing can remind us of them.
    Does this make sense? Rather long winded!
    Esp love the shirt, Susie.

  42. clover says:

    haha, i have the same hat from topshop! i brought it in septemeber when it was not on sale!!! rip off, but i was new to the town at that time

  43. Noel says:

    You’ve inspired me to get a bright colored hat for the new year. Thank you!

  44. heather says:

    haha, I love both the writer Blue Floppy Hat, your blue floppy hat, and your yellow tights. I would have thought the exact same thing.

  45. MiLi says:

    Absoluuuuutely love the hat & the shirt! 🙂

  46. ambika says:

    *Loooove the hat.* And am glad to see I got the reference. Drusilla’s blog is great.

  47. greenery says:
