Cutting edge: In this section, I feature new products, trends or news in the Irish Dance world that I think people would find exciting or inspiring.
Pocketful of Rosies Bobbypins and Earrings
The store was posted on the New England board earlier today and I thought it was just too cute. It sells bobbypins decorated with cute decals and matching earrings. Best of all, it supports a family’s effort to adopt their daughter from Ethiopia.
I know I can never have enough bobby pins! Every Irish Dancer relies on them almost as heavily as duct tape! So these cute ones are almost irresistible.
Here’s an example of the bobby pins:
And here’s an example of the earrings:
Here’s an example of a dress that I think would pair perfectly with these accessories. Plus, how great of a picture of Julia’s rock is that?! Well done, Feispix! Pair that dress with a bunwig and stick the flowers around the sides for a perfectly pretty, but not overdone, little girl look! You could also stick the bobby pins in the side of your hair in front of your crown if you’re wearing a full wig.
But the best part about these is that you can wear them outside a feis! Here’s a cute outfit for a summer day. The key to not making it look costumey is keeping the rest of the outfit simple and classy.
So now that you know what I think, what do you think? Would you buy these bobby pins or earrings for your dance costume? For real life?
