The Smiley Face and emoticons have been around since I-don’t-know-when. It’s been the essence of pop culture for years and years and the Queen of all Emojis since Emojis were invented.
In fashion, however, it has long been associated with rave culture and late-night-parties in the forests.. The icon was cool in the early 00, then transitioned to being just a staple icon, used to convey emotions or complement words in a message to bring a softer message.
But now, 2020 something has happened. Now we’re starting to see the smiley face pop in the most unexpected ways, forms and situations.
The most hyped item among all of Rosa De La Cruz’s jewelry is the Smile Ring. The ticket? It’s a shy $4000.
