Remember when everyone used to go around with enamel pins to look quirky-individual?
Ah, innocent days.
Anyway, the youth still want to accessorize and apparently, they’re doing so with anti-theft tags.
At least that’s what Etsy would have you believe.
Shop owner Michal Jonca is selling a range of perfectly fake’ security tags in pastel and primary colours to help give your look that shoplifting edge.
Chic and simple, nothing says ‘loveable rogue’ like pretending that you’ve stolen your cheap beanie hat.
‘How much more cheeky does Jewellery get?! ‘ Anke Kindle – a fan, writes.
‘These are wonderful and make you smile happily every time you wear one! Almost as good as lipstick!!!’
In fact, she’s written all kinds of reviews about them, saying she’s bought four variations as she had such a hard time deciding which one to buy.
‘I intend to wear them together like the beanie picture !!! They are beautifully cast & the colours wonderfully institutional just as you’d expect from a ‘security device’.
Each pin is £23.26 so they’re not exactly cheap but isn’t that just part of the wonderful irony?
