Old School

Posted by laura on May 05 2009 | Awesome

Last week I was so excited to stumble across some retro school badges in the gift section of a grocery store near us. This is not your average grocery store – it’s more than fancy; it’s fancy-schmancy. Occasionally they have little items in there that are brilliant, and I thought these pins were just that. You can see the whole range on the company website, but my favorites are the ones that could have been real – Monitor, Prefect, Head Boy and Head Girl.

Here’s an interesting side note – the link above takes you to the school badge section of their US customer site, but they have a much larger and cooler range of products in the main Wild and Wolf UK site. How about journals with reproduction Ladybird and Penguin classic book covers? Charlie and Lola plasters? (Seriously – any time you have a shot at buying ‘plasters’ instead of ‘bandaids,’ do you not take it?) So, so good. I’m not sure if this means that they won’t ship this kind of awesomeness to the US – I’ll have to investigate.

Anyway, back to the story – I bought  Head Boy and Head Girl pins because they were just too wonderful to resist, and although I thought I’d give them as gifts, it turns out I can’t because I NEED them. They’re so cool.

 

Here’s Honey rocking the Head Girl badge with her new chorus concert outfit. Just look at that! With the straight skirt and the knee socks? Have a heart attack.

    Cool! If you find out how to get the C+L “plasters”, let me know. Sydney would flip!

    Debbie – if I find them, I’ll definitely let you know! Charlie and Lola are the best.
