Sunday Style Obsession: Safety Pins!









...we can go where we want to 
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind
And we can dance...


SsssAaaaFfffEeeeTtttYyyy
Safe, Dance!

  7. when I was a kid, my mom would make me wear these plaid kilt like skirts to school... and they always had a HUGE safety pin holding them together.

    Needless to say, I was teased mercilessly.

  8. Sketch42- Did we have the same mother? Those huge gold safety pins still haunt me (well, not really, but close).

  19. OMG, can I tell you something so embarrassing? I actually saw Men Without Hats in concert - back in the day. (What were we thinking?) I remember they had somebody in some sort of animal suit come out and dance during this song. So. Weird.

  20. It makes me want to go to a big swap meet and find a vendor of good old kilt pins. I could use them. My cousin gave my girls antique lingerie pins. My grandmother used them--little straight pins with seed pearls that adjusted their undergarments. They wore them so proudly on their puffy sleeve dresses. Pins! forgot about them.
