There are a couple of ways to save your straw hat. I know I really need this post because I frankly ruin my hats. I have kids and they always get crushed. That is why it is so great to know that you can reshape your straw hat.
The first thing you need to do is get gloves, a heat source that will produce steam. You can use a steamer, iron, or a tea pot. Then you will need towels and something heavy to hold down the hat.
Those straw hats can be fixed to its former glory. The way that I reshaped mine was to stuff it with a damp towel. Then I put on my gloves and steamed the hat once it was wet I stretched it and put cans on top of it until it dried.
I have also used this method on how to fix a straw hat You start again with a damp towel and fill the portion of the hat where your head goes. Then you put a damp clothe under the brim of the hat. You then put a towel on top. You turn on the iron on medium heat.
Then you will need to let the hat dry. Do not attempt to put it on until it is dry. You can also put weighted items on the top of the hat until dried. This is a great way rescue those straw hats.

I am a lover of all things fashionable. I do however have a limited budget but I do not want to look like I took a nose dive in the bargain bin. I try each week to find one or two items for under ten dollars to add to my collection. This fashion Friday is all about Fashion Under 10 dollars.
I decided to take on accessories. They are hot these days and they can be pricey. I do love companies like Chole + Isabel they offer wonderful jewelry at affordable prices. I was curious could I find jewelry that was on trend in a big box store? If I did what would I find? Then would I be able to tell the difference?
The answer surprised me. I was able to find on trend jewelry at Walmart. I did pay a lot less than $10 a pair of earrings. You do get what you pay for. I have been eyeing these great earrings by my favorite designer Kate Spade they are on trend and they are a great green color. I found a pair that was the same look not the same quality for less than 10% of the price.
The question to me becomes do you pay for quality? The answer is yes for some things and no for others. The earrings at $2.88 a pair if I wear them a couple of times then they have paid for themselves. They are for fun. Read more of my Fashion Tips on How to Accessorize for less
