I decided to try my hand at a DIY Jil Sander inspired veiled beanie hat, since it’s a trend that I like but refused to pay too much money for.
Nicki Minaj was spotted rocking a dimepiece designs hat in her latest video for, “The Boys,” which is the first single from “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.”
Collecther 306 Franklin Ave I couldn’t resist being cliche with the title of this post. Speaking of temptation, you will find a lot of it at Collecther, a quaint vintage boutique located in Bed-Stuy (or Clinton Hill depending on who you ask).
