No doubt you will have seen the recent trend in slogans in the fashion industry. Slogans are appearing on t shirts, bags, shoes, hats, beachwear, coats and even on dog coats ! Some of you will have seen my recent social media photos with me wearing some form of slogan, usually on a t shirt. I LOVE slogans and I love the way the fashion industry has incorporated them into all kinds of fashion. Slogans are a great way of expressing ourselves and our feelings. We are letting the world know who, or what we support, what our likes and dislikes are, and even what mood we are in.
Slogans can be funny, sad or have a serious message that we want to convey to the world. We can wear a slogan that expresses our solidarity to a cause, charity or another human being. For me personally, I love slogans that represent how I am feeling in my current mood. I also love the slogans with positive messages, including one of my all time favourites, ‘She believed she could, so she did’. Surely wearing these positive messages can only have a positive effect on us if we look at it constantly while we are wearing it. And, just think about someone else who spots you wearing a positive slogan. Perhaps you might have a positive effect on them too.
In my quest for looking for more slogans in fashion I was introduced to the Old English Company, a British company creating unique stationary and gifts. I was thrilled to discover that they design and produce enamel slogan pins with some of the best designs I have seen. The beauty of these pins is that you can wear them on clothes and accessories you already have ! This is a fabulous way of wearing slogans without having to buy individual items. All you do is swap the enamel pins around depending on what you are wearing ! So one day pop a pin on your hat and then the next day you could wear it on your coat. Simple, economical and so effective.
These slogans pins are great fun for all ages and I cannot wait to wear mine on different outfits. They make great gifts too, so if you are stuck for ideas for a little gift for your friend, daughter or even mother then these are perfect. They make great stocking fillers too, and it becomes great fun trying to match the slogan to the person you are thinking of. And don’t forget they would make fabulous teachers gifts too. A welcome change from the chocolates and flowers that we usually end up buying them at the end of the school year.
I would like to share my favourite enamel pins from this company. Let me know in the comments if you like my choice ! All the pins I have chosen are only £7 each.
Did you enjoy my selection of pins ? Did any of the designs make you smile or feel uplifted ? I always feel a surge of positivity when I read a positive affirmation. I hope you did too.
