I love a brand with a story. And Done is one of those brands, and when they offered some of their stylish caps to try, I was immediately on board. Their concept is “50 is the limit,” meaning they only make 50 of each item. Pretty unique, right? Done produces limited and numbered caps, featured by individual serial numbers on each label, each one marked from 01, to 50.
Since I didn’t have a pink cap in my ever-growing collection of snapbacks, I knew which one of theirs I needed to have. This cross-rose design is probably as feminine as it can get for a casual hat like this, and perfect for the days I’m feeling a little bit sassy (oh wait, I’m full of sass all the time so scratch that). Done sent me No. 08 of this “Roses are dead” cap, their reason being that 8 is a lucky number in Japan. So I did my research and apparently, the number 8 is considered lucky because it gives meaning of being prosperous, as the kanji character 八 broadens gradually. The number 8 is also in the famous Japanese saying, “Fall seven times, stand up eight.” This concept involving numbers is quite unique, and something I’ve never seen other brands do.
私はキャップコレクションにピンクのキャップはまだなかったので、迷わずピンクのバラのデザインを選びました。バラがクロスした刺繍はキャップのカジュアルさに女性らしさがプラスされていて、バランスがいいなと思いました。Doneはシリアルナンバー０８番の“Roses are dead”キャップを送ってくれました。理由は、日本では8番がラッキーナンバーだからとか。ちょっと調べてみたら、漢字の八は徐々に広がるので、繁栄や富裕という意味が含まれているそうです。誰もが知っている「七転八起」にも８は入っていますしね。数字を使ったコンセプトもユニークで、なかなか見かけないです。
It’s also been a minute since I posted on my blog, the reason being I was traveling in Europe with my mother. Mainly for my friend’s wedding in Switzerland, but we managed to squeeze in a week’s worth of sight-seeing in Italy, another first for me. I decided to put blogging on hold during the trip (I felt really guilty about this, sorry guys…), and like I mentioned in a previous blog post, it’s important to put your work down once in a while and enjoy a little vacation. Anyways, it’s great to be back in the grind and I can’t wait to continue sharing more content with you all!

You rock hats so well!! I’ve never been a hat girl but I’m definitely looking into it 🙂 I also agree and love when there’s a story behind a brand as well because it makes it more special to collaborate with!
I love the idea of producing limited quantities of products so that each line is unique. This “Roses are Dead” cap is so cool and I love the vibe. 8 is also a lucky number in Chinese probably for the same reason as the Kanji character so you got a really great number! I am glad you have been traveling and enjoying time with your mom and sightseeing. It’s always nice to live in the moment and not have to capture everything on social media! You looked stunning at the wedding by the way! Love your gown! xoxo, Christine
Hi girl, long time no see, but you still rock. Hope you loved Europe, we have lots of cool places here. 🙂
I love caps – this one looks great on you. I wear them after I exercise to cover my bad hair day ?. But I love the way you are styling this one for casual events.
First of all no one can rock street style like you! Girl that hat definitely fits your fashion vibe. I love dad caps. I’m collecting them! I will have to check that brand out. I understand you feeling guilty about putting your blog down for a week but sometimes a break is needed in order to come back strong.
You are rocking this look! I love that cap. I’ve been trying to get more into caps myself but definitely don’t pull them off the way you do haha. Those heels look killer! I love the embroidery on it as well as the strap-ups 🙂 xo, sharon
You definitely rock this pink rose-printed cap Samantha! I’m a big fan of head pieces, because they’re such a fun accessory to spice it all up a bit <3

I love that they are only making 50 pieces each! You feel special owning a piece. I hope you enjoyed your trip for your friend’s wedding. There is nothing wrong with putting blogging on hold and just enjoy yourself. Sometimes taking the moment and enjoy your life is way more important than writing a post.
Great style, like always! These caps are so unique, I love the unique concept of the brand “50 is the limit”, you really can feel yourself very special wearing one of only 50 pieces. This pink cap looks gorgeous and I really love how you styled the whole outfit. The shoes are incredible!
I like how they only make 50 of each item. That’s actually really cool and it makes your cap one of a kind. Well, 50 of a kind. I like how they number it too to see which one you got. I feel like fashion should be more like this. Just make a certain amount and not mass produced. It makes things more unique. I’m glad you were offline and got a chance to spend time with your mom. 🙂 Welcome back!
This cap was made for you! you truly look so chic and fabulous on this with it. I love how they only make a certain number of items which makes it so much more unique and interesting. So glad you are enjoying time with you mon 🙂
Happy weekend, beauty!
That is a super cool concept! I love that when you buy from them you know it isn’t a mass produced item. What a cool idea. And the hat you are wearing is so cute!
That’s awesome. I love it when the design is not entirely unique but at least there are only a few of them. Like a limited edition. This one looks really pretty.
Looks like it was meant for you to rock #8! I have a ton of caps too and don’t wear them as often anymore because of my natural hair. On another note, those heels you’re wearing are badass! You styled them like I probably never would have dreamt of doing!
I love limited edition pieces, especially ones that come with a story such as the caps do. Come to think of it. I have numerous snapbacks, but not a single pink one, but I bet this edition is already sold out so I’ll just have to steal yours I guess. And you’re totally right. You’re full of sass ALL the time so no fooling me there hun, haha.

This is so awesome! I really love the fact that they make only 50 at DONE because it makes it so much more special to have a hat with such limited quantities. I love the pink on you and the Roses Are Dead design combined with lucky number 8 is perfect!
You’re welcome back. Like me , sometimes we need a little break. Nice That rose color cap.
Love how you used them. Mathed with cool and sexy elements.
The heels are awesome .

I love this little feminine red rose cap and you should wear red more often! It’s such a flattering colour on you xx

Yes absolutely love the concept babe!! I normally don’t use caps but I think it makes the look more edgy and interesting. Love the color that you choose.
That’s definitely a very cool concept for a fashion accessories line! I love shopping brands that do short order batches like that – makes the collection more special for sure. Giving each cap a number is so cool. It would make me wonder who has the other 49 and where they are in the world 🙂
