Finding fashionable pieces, that are also very inspiring and relatable are hard! That’s why when I saw Coloring Pins I definitely had to find out more about the brand and what they stood for. It gave me so many cultural vibes, and sometimes in this world you need to be reminded who you are and what you stand for. Check out the different products and pieces that Coloring Pins have to offer, and how I added my fashion flare to my pieces!
First off, I want to thank the creator and founder of this beautiful brand, Essence Hayes, for allowing me to feature her brand on my blog! She describes her brand, Coloring Pins, as:
“A brand that represents people of color, the mis- and underrepresented. We want people to feel and see themselves in a very popular market. With plans to donate proceeds to select organizations, we will expand to apparel and other merchandise to complement our popular accessories. Coloring Pins is just here to add a bit more color to the pin game.”
What makes Coloring Pins so great is that for the patches you can do a DIY iron on OR you sew them on for more durability! Since I decided to use my army green polyester bomber jacket, it was easier for me to iron on my patch to get the results that I wanted. I say it took me 30 minutes or less to complete everything – which was definitely a plus for someone who isn’t knowledgable in creating clothing!
The sky is really the limit with these pieces! If you check out their Instagram page you’ll see all of the different/creative ways that people are displaying their patches. Whether it be on denim or leather – you can dress it up with your fashion preference for an amazing look.
Be sure to shop Coloring Pins today! I promise you won’t be disappointed, and you’ll be wearing an item that either gives you a blast from the past or a cultural reminder of who you are and what you stand for.
