more is more: my denim jacket

My entire patch collection is now adorning my denim jacket just in time for spring, and it looks super rad if I do say so myself. I love that pins and patches are a "thing" now, and eagerly bought up all of these pieces from independent designers and a few random places online. The makers of everything are listed below except for those that were thrifted or can be found via Ebay searches - some of my very favorites to scroll through are vintage Girl Guide patches from any era, but especially the '90s. Behold my masterpiece!


Patches: Over It - These Are Things / I Will Make It - Stay Home Club / Paws - Rosehound Apparel
Pins: Envelope - Explorer's Press / Love Bed - Rosehound Apparel




Patches: Tell My Mother - Explorer's Press / Feminist - These Are Things / Cat - Valley Cruise Press


Pins: Lost At Last - Explorer's Press / Face - Gentle Thrills



Give 'Em Hell - Rosehound Apparel

Omg amazing! I love it, the back especially. If I tried to do this myself it'd look like a mess haha.

It looks great, I was wondering whether to buy will make it out of this alive one or not, but I decided that Thursday have to do something with the ones I already have. Such an adult like thing for me, huh?
