Part of me will always miss putting band pins all over my jackets and book bag. When you’re younger, it seems vital to your identity to link those favorite bands/people/things to you in a physical way. Thankfully, Brooklyn is full of people who still feel that way, so I could probably get away with writing “Nirvana” on my sneakers if I wanted to. But perhaps these embroidered pins would be a better way to embrace the look. Made by Allene La Spina of Urbahnika, each pin is one of a kind and hand-embroidered and measures approximately 1.5 inches in diameter. These little pins are mailed in a jewelry box, making them a great gift — or a TGIF present to yourself. I really like the simpler geometric designs, but there are some Pendleton-inspired pieces, as well, if you’re looking for something a little more colorful. Click here to check out the buttons online.
