Banana Republic: Sassy Statements

Banana Republic is promoting their line of accessories by focusing on some "sassy satement" pieces: hats, jewelry, and scarves.  I know the graphic is a little small, so here is what each of the sections say:

The Hat
The sun hat is n ot just essential for blocking harmful rays.  It's still a topper with major allure.  Designed in a straw weave with an extra-wide brim, it's right on trend for the season.

The Jewelry
A hammered texture has an earthy-glam shine that's a natural complement to Spring and Summer color.  A bold conversation piece will give your look a little extra sophistication.

The Scarf
A soft scarf makes a big impact with an oversize diamond print in colorful hues.  With a print this bold you won't need any other accessories.  Just add it to your basics for an instant lift.
For the most part, I like these accessories.  I love sun hats, and I even own one (great find at Eddie Bauer Outlet last summer!), but I don't even know that I've worn it once!  I think this hat is great for the beach or vacationing, but I hardly ever go to the beach, and I haven't quite figured out how to pack this hat yet.  Truth be told, I feel a little over-the-top wearing this hat, but I do think it is a very classic look.

As for the necklace, it's pretty, but it's too big for me.  I know I couldn't (and wouldn't) wear this.  The scarf is very pretty, but I am always careful about wearing scarves, because I think they can go from being a cute accent piece to a silly looking piece of fabric very quickly.

What do you think?  Do you like any of these accessories?  Which one is your favorite?  What is your favorite place to get your accessories from?
