Cute & Cosy: River Island Katy Perry Panda Beanie

The snow is well and truly upon us, and ages ago I saw Katy Perry in this adorable panda beanie and thought I NEED that for the snowy weather of both joy and doom! I found out that it was from River Island but all the stores I went to didn't seem to have it. Today I went to a smaller River Island and yay, there it was! The SA said it had been a total sellout before Christmas. My hat is not exactly the same colour as Katy's but I love it a bit more because it compliments my colouring better. River Island has released it in a whole new variety of shades apparently. I've just checked on ebay (or as I like to sometimes call it, evilbay ;) ) and can you believe (or maybe you can!) that Katy's colour is currently bidding for £47...yes that's right, £47. It retails for £12.99! I've just checked the website and they still have some left, so please promise me that if you do want this, you won't be going on ebay bidding up to that much! It's http://www.riverisland.com/. I'm just editing this post because the Dice Girl kindly noted in the comments that Katy's version is now back online. Even more reason to stay away from ebay :).

  2. Yay, hello fellow panda beanie buyer :)I know I was so shocked to see it for that amount. Just why?! It always happens when a celeb is seen wearing something from the highstreet though.

  4. hat is so cute, but not sure if I could pull of it myself. Why people would bit £40+ when they can still pay normal price on riverisland.com is a bit strange. maybe they think it's the one Katy Perry actually wore...

  5. @ Laura Jaye- Yes I just heard that too, but literally minutes after I posted this! Kind of cute really, she tames him! haha.

    @ Kelly- I think it's because the colour she's wearing in the pic is the one most popular on ebay. But they're all the same, just different colours! But this happens with MAC. I remember Barbie Loves MAC eyeshadows going for the same!!!

  9. I have this hat too! I think mine is the same colour as katys. I hate it when sellers put things on ebay for ridiculous prices! ... and some are bound to be fake! I do find it is a big fit though! xx
