Shairpins are interchangeable fashion accessories, meaning you can wear one as a hair clip, snap it off and then wear the same one as a necklace! This makes your fashion ideas infinite and timeless. Snap between hair clips, headbands, necklaces, brooches and even décor.
Women and girls have the most fun with fashion when they can control the outcome and not the other way around. The interchangeable aspect of Shairpins (you can wear the same pin as a hair clip, necklace, brooch or decor) is what makes it the most unique and transforms simple accessories into art! And wearing ART is just really cool!
Excerpt from my conversations with my community:
Growing up, I struggled with accepting myself for who I was. But I've always had an easy time finding something that's beautiful about others. Sounds like many of us, right? Well, let’s go through an exercise:
Who were you growing up? The nice girl? The smart girl? The pretty girl? The funny girl? The quiet girl?
See, the thing is, whether we realized it or not, we had to pick one. Because...society and their boxes right? And most of us just didn't know any better growing up...
I was always told I was pretty and because of that, I couldn’t identify with any other type except for "the pretty girl". But I feel this can get glossed over. Why? Because pretty girls and have no struggles, right!?
Well let me tell you from the perspective of a "pretty girl" box…
Now let’s get it out of the way…Of course, who doesn’t mind being easy on the eyes? But trust me, people can NOT like you for being pretty. And I experienced that. But the confidence issues didn’t even come from the outside, it came from within.
Up until maybe a couple years ago, I just felt I lacked substance. I felt all I had going for me was being cute…and don’t we all presume that will fade with time? In school, I struggled with C’s and D’s while all my friends around me were making the honor roll. In friend groups, I still struggled with feeling worthy of being a part of the bunch because I didn’t make people roll on the floor with laughter. In fact, I had been told I was “too much” and “annoying” with my personality and most of the time, I felt like I was just a body occupying space.
The inside didn't match the outside and that was devastating.
I don’t know what your personal struggles were and are today but I do know you’ve had your feel of them and experienced them in a way that’s unique to the woman you are today.
And I want you to know… that’s exactly the way God planned it.
I stopped throwing myself a pity party about who I was and who I wasn’t and embraced the parts of me that I love! And because of that, I can honestly say I’ve never felt more smart, funny, outspoken, nice, well-liked AND beautiful! It’s an amazing thing to witness what happens when you begin to love yourself. And I want, so badly, to instill this in the minds of all who enter the Shairpins community so it can be passed on to our children and future children.
