You call it an accessory, I call it a pinata…
Okay, the caption tells us this fashion model is showing swimsuit “accessories.” Nice try. I don’t think this thing counts as an accessory, unless you’re Cleopatra heading for a splash with Mark Antony.
I mean, who goes swimming with a whole pavilion on her head? I don’t care how sexy the bikini might be, folks don’t want to have Miss Hot Stuff flop into the aluminum lounge chair next to them, blocking the rays with a hat that looks like a sundial.
They will begin to shout rude things, such as: “Hey Josephine! Does Napoleon know you’ve got his hat?” or “Lady, you got a whopping slice of watermelon on your head!” People can be so cruel. I will say one thing, though. This hat supports my recent theory that designers are now trying to appeal to cats.
