LITTLE THINGS: MY LAPEL PINS

IMG_0176

Being a minimalist, I usually stray from collecting little things unless they are truly meaningful and important to me. I almost never wear jewelry, I only like owning makeup I use every day, and I only like rotating through the same few bags. However, there are some little things that are my vices, and I want to do a mini-series of the little things I do happen to collect. These posts will go up on TUESDAY NIGHTS for the next three weeks!

This week is lapel pins.

I don’t have a lot of them (for obvious reasons), but I like having ones that have meaning to me. The lapel pin-clad leather jacket is the charm bracelet of 2016. Everyone’s pins represent them in a way. I think that the rapid emergence of enamel pins has been really awesome. Anyone can design and sell them, and the craziest designs keep popping up in my Instagram feed.

The “I WANT TO DIE” pin is from FOREVER OUTSIDE. They are new to pinmaking and this is their first design. All of the owners of the company are dealing with mental illness, and they wanted to make eye-catching pins that address the negativity that can sometimes come with struggling with depression, anxiety, whathaveyou, and raise awareness. This one really takes the controversial route, but it comes from a very genuine place. Follow FOREVER OUTSIDE on Instagram and check out their upcoming pin designs!

I have three pins that came in a set, which my boyfriend bought me for Christmas. They are the two bears and the butt heart. They are from FATHER JOHN MISTY’S MERCH SHOP online, and I love them because they remind me of how awesome that album is and how it represents my relationship with my man-friend-human-person.

The teeny little white one was also from my boyfriend, and it was from Abbey Road Studios in London. It has a little logo for Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, which has always been my favorite Beatles album/era. This one is my favorite, especially since you can’t tell what it says unless you’re up close.

Here are some of the pins on my wishlist:
