This hat is the essence of short and snappy. The pink check buntal straw is an intense bubblicious color and has an approximately 3" brim. The crown is very shallow so the hat doesn't sit down all the way on your head but secures with a discreet elastic that goes under your hair behind the head. This makes the headsize not as crucial but is probably best on a 22.5"-23 1/4" head. The cotton organdie roses are dyed and made by hand in the studio and they GLOW off this hat. They are the scene stealer here. This shape works as it doesn't hang to far in your face and won't block the view. It does sit a little high so you will want to feel confident in that.
