my lapel pin collectionWednesday, October 28, 2015
If you've been following my blog for any amount of time, you might have noticed in my what I wore posts that I kind of have a thing for accessories. Fun necklace, rings, brooches, lapel pins, etc. I love them all. I 100% do not abide by the quote "before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory." I basically do the opposite. Before leaving the house I usually look in the mirror to make sure I have at least a few eye catching things on.
These last six months or so lapel pins have become pretty darn hip. I'm ashamed to admit that I'm usually kind of sour when things I love become super popular but there are so many independent companies out there making them and you can find one for just about any interest you may have. I've welcomed this boom with open arms. I love finding new brands with lapel pins. They're small, and usually cost less then $10 a piece so they're easy to collect. They're a really awesome way to support creative folks and their businesses (...at least that's how I justify having so many!)
I thought it would be a fun idea to share some photos of my collection! This little three dollar bulletin board from the deals section at Target is the perfect way to display them all. It's nice to see them all at a glance instead of storing them in a dish where I may forget what all I have.
dish are a few of my favorite and most worn pins.
It would be crazy hard to link to where each of the pins are from so instead I'll link to all the folks I own pins from and then you can blame me when you blow all your money on pins!
