Winning Is Everything

number one!

Number of competitions, challenges, matches, races, fights, and trials that you’ve participated in since birth: 435.

Number actually won: 0 (and counting).

You’re a pugilist with a losing streak. A show dog with a gimp leg. A stripper with stretch marks.

The underdog gets another chance to make it (a.k.a. fake it) to the top with Jessica Grindstaff’s satin prize ribbons — clever, new, oversized accessories that hint “I’m the best” (a.k.a. “you’re not”) with the right amount of pomp and panache.

The bold colors (blue, yellow, burgundy, green) and the vintage cast medals (horses, bees, lions, snakes, guns) are just some of their charming details. Wear them one at a time or all at once.

Don’t forget to rehearse your story (you won it galloping, spelling, taming, charming, shooting, kissing). Make it as impressive as the pin itself.

Here’s the finish line. Looks like we have a winner!
