Sale: HitchPin: Gypsy Girl, was $78
How often have you found yourself getting dressed in the morning and stating aloud to your cat: If only I had the perfect pin to hitch up my skirt so I can show off my lacy tulle petticoat underneath? Routinely, right? I thought so! I am here to grant your wish, oh romantic girl.
Beautiful vintage French laundry pin (D19), bedecked with a cluster of charms, beads, rhinestones, and hella vintage goodness. This one has a 40’s-looking molded glass conical bead, a wonderful copper beaded bead, delicate chains, a crusty tiny vintage heart charm, rhinestone finding and an old jeweled kuchi belly dance coin (VERY dark blue, almost black), with tribal glass beads… a collection for your bohemian gypsy soul. Colors are all warm brass and rose, neutral enough to really go with anything.
Wear it as I designed, to hoist up your skirt or dress, or certainly in a more traditional way on your lapel or coat, as a scarf pin or to keep a shawl closed. Quite versatile, the pin works in both a vertical and horizontal orientation. IMPORTANT: this is not a pin for delicate fabrics. It is a substantial vintage pin and best used on sweaters, or flannels/wools or any fabric you are not too worried about punching a bit of a hole into.
