It’s Not Easy Being Cool

I bought some TOTALLY RADICAL patches when I was in Vancouver:



I have honestly no idea what I will do with these (I briefly considered sewing the second patch on to something of my son’s as an EPIC TROLL) but they have given me far more than fifty cents (CANADIAN!) of giggles so there’s that.

And no, I have not been invited to any 80s-themed parties (well, not since the 1980s when every party was 80s-themed by default) and I’d rather not sully my Levi’s trucker jacket with these. Other ideas?

  1. Oh aren’t they fabulous! I can definitely see one or both on a dark fabric tote bag or backpack. Or maybe a library bag? A ‘delicates’ bag? Or how about in the corner of a cushion?

    I have some 90210 jeans studs that I don’t know what to do with either 🙂


  2. Okay, my mom absolutely had that “It’s not easy being cool” patch in her sewing box, and I used to fantasize about how cool I could be wearing it. I would look at it allll the time.


  3. Put them on a little zipped pouch you can keep in your purse. It’ll make you smile every time you need to get something out of it.


  4. You must have gone to Dressew! I recognized these immediately. I had that “It’s not easy being cool” patch in highs chool, which means that I bought it sometime in the ’90s. Either Dressew has a VERY LARGE box of these, or there’s a consistent supply becuase they’re still being made. Amazing.
