Black Owned Enamel Pins at Etsy

Etsy is having their first ever Labor Day sale, and there’s so many great items on sale. There’s even a healthy selection of black owned enamel pins available to buy! One of the common complaints some people have about supporting black-owned businesses is that sometimes it’s too expensive. Other times, people are hesitant to support because they don’t really feel a connection to the products for sale.

Well, with enamel pins, many of them are super affordable. The majority of black owned enamel pins retail for less than $10. Additionally, black pin makers are creating enamel pins that span various interests and categories. You have designs honoring historical black figures, black pop culture, and everything in between. Also, they’re small! You can discreetly add a pin to your outfit for a quirky or snazzy touch. Since the possibilities are truly endless, I want to add my voice to the black pin discussion.

As I type this, I love the idea of buying a nice shadow box to display all the enamel pins I plan to buy once I move to my new home. But for now, check out all these nostalgia-inducing, black owned enamel pins. Some are marked down for Etsy’s Labor Day Sale while other shops are having their own sales:

Girls Trip Fashion: Where to Buy Items Seen in the Movie

Are you searching for Girls Trip fashion? I’ve rounded up which items are still available and how to get the girls’ stylish looks for less!

Ok, so I’ll make this quick. I finally saw Girls Trip a few weeks back. Like almost everyone else in America, I loved it, especially the fashion! I was miffed that no else did a fashion post detailing what the ladies wore in the movie besides The Hollywood Reporter. However, even THR didn’t list the exact name of the items worn with buying information. So, I decided to step up to the plate! Please note that this is not a complete post as I’m still trying to find the majority of Sasha’s wardrobe, along with a few other items the ladies wore. Luckily for us, Girls Trip is hitting stores very soon so when I can get my hands on a digital copy, I’ll have better screenshots so I can identify the rest of the Flossy Posse’s wonderful wares. Enjoy and leave a comment if you’re looking for something specific!

For me, this particular episode went by way too quickly! I definitely was not expecting this latest installment to go left like it did but this is one of my favorites so far.

Insecure Hella LA Fashion: Molly's H. Lorenzo Cold Open Denim Mini Dress

According to The Insecurialist, Molly allegedly wore an H. Lorenzo Cold Shoulder Denim Dress. I tried confirming with costume designer Ayanna James twice on Twitter but alas, my questions weren’t answered this time. However, I did learn this blue jean beauty came from Melina Matsoukas’ closet. Either I reached my quota or Ms. James is just tired of me tweeting her. 😂 Anyway, I searched the H. Lorenzo site to see if it was still available. I didn’t find it on the website. Then I took to Google to find a photo of the actual dress. Again, I received no confirmation. I’ll keep searching; I hope to receive a lead, if not the actual name and brand of Molly’s denim mini, by the end of this week. I do like these alternatives though:
