Lately it seems like I’ve been stumbling into beetle-inspired pieces, such as my beetle-embroidered loafers and vibrant green jewels. I’ve had quite a fascination with them. They are beautiful insects after all.
I found this awesome beetle pin at Forever 21 and I was so excited about it because I’ve been wanting more ornate pins, but the kind I want are always rare to find because they’re vintage or they’re crazy expensive. I love wearing menswear-inspired pieces, but I always like to give them a feminine touch which for me means piling on the jewels. In this case, I wore the pin on the shirt collar to give it a special, elegant feel.
I’ve been addicted to pinning things on my collars. I’ve even used earrings. It’s a great, easy way to dress up a white shirt.
