Hats off to Marc by Marc Jacobs

I thought I'd make it a hat trick of blog entries today with this, er, hat. Yes, I know it's the hottest weekend of the year so far, but this bargain was irresistible, even if I'm not going to be able to wear it until the autumn comes around.

This cute beanie hat by Marc by Marc Jacobs was just £3! Yes, really! It's from the 'Special Items' range at the new Marc by Marc Jacobs London store which opened last month. At 56 South Audley Street in Mayfair, it's just a stone's throw from the main Marc Jacobs store.

I've only just managed to make the pilgrimage there, but walking into the store is rather like entering a sweet shop - or a deluxe pound shop. As well as the Marc by Marc Jacobs fashion line, the store is filled to the rafters with Special Items. These bargain buys are too numerous to list, but range from cute lipstick pens for just £1 and heart-shaped compact mirrors for £3 to cotton tote bags with some playful/ironic Jacobs branding for £14.

If you're liking the beanie, hurry as there weren't many left - yep, they're selling like hot cakes, even when the weather doesn't demand it! Oh, and did I mention that the hat's reversible, too? I'm looking forward to working stripes one day and plain steely grey the next. One designer label, two looks - all for £3. It's Christmas come early!
