Remember in middle school when you had that goth/punk phase and you had pins with quotes on them all over your bag and jackets? No? Just me? Ok. Cool. Anyway….
WHAT ARE THESE THINGS: Adorable enamel pins with the likeness of everything you can imagine. These cute little things are back – and improved! These new shops are probably popping up all over your instagram feed as often as Kylie pregnancy conspiracy theories. Basically anything you love or have ever loved, someone has made into a pin. From cartoons to cult films to a cute one I found of a La Croix can, if you love it, it’s in pin form.
WHERE TO PUT THEM: I personally have mine on a mini backpack. I’ve seen people put them on denim jackets, backpacks, and cork boards for starters. So really, have at it! Throw them on your gym bag to add something different to that all black tote. Add a few cute ones to your cubical at work to remind you of your will to live.
WHERE TO FIND THEM: Instead of just going to your local Hot Topic, you can hop on Etsy and find some that better suit your adult interests. Go on insta and search any pin hashtag or whatever interests you and you’re bound to run into something, and add a little color to your wardrobe or accessories. If you’re like me, your soul is still black, but your outsides are a little brighter. Kind of. Ok listen my wardrobe is mostly black but I live in New York so thats our uniform, ok? I’ll link some of the sellers I’ve found that I love here, and on my Insta!
SOME I OWN:
LOOK – ITS JOEY AND CHANDLER IN THE CANOE!
These are just a few of the ones I’ve collected/impulse bought at 1am. A lot of these companies are also bringing back stickers, iron on patches, and the like. So if the pins aren’t your jam, I’m sure you’ll be able to find something else you love.
Have you found any of these adorable little pins that you love? What would YOU like to see turned into a pin? It could be a movie quote, your favorite GOT character (idk, I don’t watch), a throwback to a cartoon, whatever. Let me know in the comments!
