Badges and Brooches


April 8, 2010

I thought I’d begin my debut onto this fashion/arts/everything deadly blog, by writing about something that I think is deadly – badges. Badges (and brooches) are in my opinion one of the best accessories you can get; whether you wanna add a bit of coolness to your collar, bring some bling to your bag or simply class up your ass, this is a fine way to go about it. My only word of advice would be to use sparingly on clothes…unless you’re going for a ‘TGI Friday’s employee’ look.

On the high street, check out Topshop for some playful girly brooches (click here) and Accessorize/Monsoon for some more fancy stuff (click here).

On the internet go to http://www.prickie.com/ for a huge selection of button badges with some really lovely designs, Lara Allport’s badges are among my favourites on the site.

http://www.etsy.com/ is also worth having a look at. This site is home to various sellers with mostly hand-made things on offer. If you’re looking for something a little bit different, this is the place to go.
