Safety (Pin) Dance
I recently read blogger Erica Domesek's "P.S. — I Made This" (Abrams Image, $18.95). Although it made me feel painfully uncreative and inadequate as a person, I did marvel at Domesek's wild imagination — a studded bracelet made of lace, studs and a cardboard roll? She's a fashion MacGyver!
Most of her projects actually seem doable, too.
So, in that same creative vein, why not pimp out a dress or shirt with pins? Safety pins, that is. Sauce is this cool label that does a lot of basics with edgy twists, like this maxi henley dress. How easy would it be to just attach some pins to the side of one of your old maxis? Plus, it'd make it easier to walk in.
Take another cue from Sauce and add fun beads to pins and then stick 'em onto a shirt pocket, like the line did here.
