Bradley Bayou Ladies Basketweave Set
Not for me
Returned this immediately. While I liked the texture, and the bee pins were adorable, the hat was too tight and the scarf was enormous. I am tall and a longer scarf should work, but this one did not make any sense. It was definately overpriced. Wish I had followed other review advice before ordering.
great hat, good scarf
I have to agree with the other reviewers. The hat is adorable, such a chic weave and I love the bee. The scarf is a little bit too long and can be bulky with a coat. However, I wore it with a knit top at work today, because it was cold in my office and got several compliments. Oh and I have it in ivory. It is a nice ivory, very soft and not white.
Some fussing required....
What I loved: this is that cozy, thick, chunky material that just feels so good on. The lime is a pretty color and not too bright, and not at all "neon". The hat is great and covers the ears. Since it is all acrylic, there is no itching whatsoever. And I liked the cute little silver bee attached to both the scarf and hat. What I didn't like: If the scarf is worn as shown in the photo, then you don't have it right up at your neck and your neck doesn't stay warm, and, it could easily slip off the shoulders. If you pull it tighter towards the neck, then the rest of the scarf hangs down to the waist, and to me just isn't a good look. To sum it up, I think it is just too long. If it had been shorter by 12" or so, or if it would have been open with a type of button closure, I think it would have been a better look. Sending this back as I know I won't wear it!
Very Nice in Navy
This set is pretty in the navy...not too dark...looks blue, not black. The weave is nicely done and I like that it is bulky. If you prefer to not have "a bee in your bonnet" you can carefully snip the threads that secure the silvertone BB logo. The only reason that I did not give 5 stars is the price. If this set is ever offered at a reduced price I will likely purchase another color because of the quality, the comfort and the look.
I just received this and love the hat, but the scarf is way too bulky. We live in Colorado and the temps have been -0's and it's too big with a large coat. I looked like Nanook of the North. :) I'll keep it and wear it with sweaters during the season.
Scarf Too Big!
I received this in Ivory and loved the hat but the scarf is very bulky and long. I could not wear this with a heavier coat and not be swallowed up by the scarf. The best way to wear it is as shown in the picture with something very light. It is cute however but would not get my money's worth out of it.
