Patch Things Up

A few seasons back Anya Hindmarch featured leather decals on her handbag line and now I'm seeing patches, pins and embroidery everywhere. I have to say, I love it. It's graphic, it's lighthearted and who doesn't love an embroidered pizza patch on a denim jacket?  Exactly.

Or go wild and DIY! I just picked up a basic jacket from the GAP a few weeks ago and I'm spending time on Etsy and checking out some local spots for pieces of flair.  I think the best part about a project like this, besides being a unique statement about yourself, is collecting and adding as you go.
