Pin Me Please

Although they've long been though of as more punk than princess, designers are giving safety pins a serious attitude adjustment. Safety pin accessories are popping up all over, this time with a sophisticated, ladylike bent. Wearing these are a great way to give your outfit some downtown edge without looking like a depressed 15-year old.

Here are some of RT's favorite pieces:
