I cannot resist a tiny little boys blazer. Seriously, I thrift them all the time for like $3. I have a tuxedo one with satin trim, some wool ones, some polyester, some black, some navy... etc. So I pulled out one of the navy ones with gold buttons and went to town with some brass safety pins! Now the lapels are awesome and judging by the reaction of my students in the hour I've been at work... this is the coolest thing I've ever worn.
Blazer - thrifted little boys, brass safety pins added by me
Shirt - JC Penney clearance
Pants - secondhand Marni
Shoes - Melissa
So easy and so cool! I think the brass color takes away the corniness of safety pins and makes them less "13 year old goth customizing her hoodie from Hot Topic" and more "runway fashion"...
