I was so excited to see Erin Gates from Elements of Style’s new blazer line, Two Penny Blue! I love companies that have a great product, meaning behind its name and that give back. How gorg is the ikat blazer!
What’s in a name?
Two Penny Blue refers to the Two Penny Blue Stamp - one of the world’s first adhesive postage stamps. Featuring a portrait of Queen Victoria as a 15-year-old princess, the stamp celebrates women in power and symbolizes education and democracy. Our logo is the classic Maltese Cross which was used to cancel the Two Penny Blue stamp as it traveled through the postal system. Our name also pays homage to the founder Marie Whitney’s mother, Penny– who started her own business at the tender age of eighteen and always inspired Marie with her big heart and entrepreneurial spirit.
