One year after an anniversary dinner, me and my girl went shopping. Because that’s who we are.
Got this piece at Artifaktori in Davis Square. Can’t recommend this place enough: had some great stuff (we both spent money the first time there and have both been back since); good clothes and a ton of really unique items. The staff has always been lovely.
I found a jacket I really wanted but that was out of my reach. I pouted over it for the longest time while DMS tried on other things. Finally she was ready to go and so I gave it up as a lost cause. As she was buying I did some browsing around the counter and wouldn’t you know I found this amazing pink lizard pin hiding under some other pieces.
Having been adamant about getting something, I suddenly found my match right as we were leaving. I bought it instantly. It’s since become one of my favorite pieces. Works well on a hat or lapel. I also sometimes pin it to a jacket/vest just about the pocket so it acts as a simple splash of color where a pocket square would typically go. Once or twice I’ve even put him in the pocket, wrapped up in a pocket square, so there’s just a flash of pink in the midst. Always fun, always a conversation piece.
