1. Plain Black Beanie w/ DIY Studs - eBay
You all know I love my beanies and I just can't seem to get enough of them.They are litrally perfect for me, as im always having lazy days with my hair when i'm at uni, so I can whack one on and then im sorted, infact tomorrow well today LOL is going to be a beanie day I think. So I thought i'd do a post on my current collection, well its not much of a collection as I only have 6 but it is still growing. I decided to do this post starting from the first beanie I bought to my most recent buy. I cant wait to get my hands on some neon ones and a couple more embroidered ones, oh I also have my eye on a bright red one, I'm really loving the colours red and pink at the moment.
This beanie was the first ever one I bought from eBay, I thought i'd play it safe and stick with good ol'black. I think I bought it at the beginning of 2012, but I hardley ever wore it. However, during the summer I studded a couple of my jackets and had a few studs left so I thought id add them to this beanie and I love how it turned out. Its become one of my favourite beanies to chuck on and when i've got this beanie on the studs give any outfit that added edge, which I love! I am definitely going to do more DIY beanies when I'm less busy, as they are SO MUCH BETTER than buying pre studded beanie. This is because its so much cheaper and doing it yourself means you get to put the studs where you want. also sorry for the goofy faces haha.
2. Black "Trill" Beanie - eBay
This Trill beanie was the second beanie that came into my life and I LOVE IT! When I bought it from eBay, it was a massive impulse buy. At the time I didn't even know what Trill ment... oops, but obviously I researched it and it was alright. Wasnt too sure about the gun at first thought but I don't think its that noticable and I guess it makes it a little different. This hat was a bargain at like £5 or something like that and the quality is great. I wore it out on a night out and I got quite a few complements too, which was cool.
3. Black BOY beanie - Gift
The 3rd beanie is my BOY one that I got for Christmas. I love love love this beanie but it all honesty I have never worn it before. This is literally the first time and i'm starting to wonder why because It looks pretty rad and its comfortable. Its kind of different from the previous two as its not as much matrial so it doesnt bunch up at the top (which I like) but it still pretty cool, might have to rock this out at university tomorrow.
4. Black Carhartt Beanie - Gift
Next on the list is my Carhartt beanie, that I also got for Christmas and its safe to say this is my most worn beanie. I literally live in this thing, it is so so comfortable and I love the shape of it and how it makes my head look haha! I also like the logo in the front which looks cool and sets it apart from your plain black beanie. I've seen it on the ASOS website and it was priced at £20, so its also my most expencive hat, thats probably why its so soft and comfortable compared to the others, you can also find this hat on eBay too. I have my eye on the neon orange one.
Plain Maroon Beanie - eBay
Plain Bottle Green Beanie - eBay
Last on the list are these two beanies that I bought the same time from eBay. I had previously bought it in maroon and grey but my brother nabbed them off me, so when buying them again I decided to still stick with the maroon but get the bottle green instead as its different (sorry its not coming up well in the pictures). Both of these beanies were around £3 which was a steal as they are pretty soft and comfortable. Weirdly enough the green is stretchier and softer than the maroon, but they are both pretty amazing. Unfortunately like the BOY beanie I haven't had any wear out of these two, which is awful. its like the heels thing all over again guys, I buy them but I never use/wear them haha. However, after doing this post I am now determind to wear these beanies, cause then im able to justify getting more haha!
5:50AM and the post is complete ha, but I think its time for me to try and get 3 hours sleep haha! Hope you all have a great day. oh also Happy 18th Birthday to Vanz and Ally woooo.
