The description is a bit misleading as the hat itself is NOT wool felt, it feels like flocked plastic. The bow seems to be felt, though. Mine arrived in a padded envelope and I was quite surprised it was in good shape and not squashed as the envelope looked a little wrinkled. The hat is a nice small size and mine looks like the picture. The hair clip is large and sturdy and grips tight in my straight hair. The headband is sturdy, too. I'm not sure how to 'style' the netting as it's not long enough to be a veil and it's in two pieces with the center open. I got mine to wear to Red Hat functions so I'll probably add some purple flowers or feathers now and then to make it more festive. although I think I'll keep them temporary so I can swap things out. All in all I think it's a good hat for what I paid.
