Nothing says patriotism like a weapon

I love a good excuse to dress up, and the Fourth of July is my favorite holiday. Lighting things on fire and BBQ'ing on a warm summer night are an unbeatable combo. I was rifling through my drawer this morning running my hands through fake pearls, rhinestones, and beaded indian jewelry from the southwest trying to decide what to wear with my simple blue and white outfit. Then my eyes flicked over to the other side of my drawer when I saw my pocket knife. Whats more American than wearing a knife around my neck!? I mean, my revolutionary forefathers would be proud (my mother's family actually came here in 1640, so I have some insight).
I'm kidding, I'm kidding. It did make a nice necklace, albeit one I wouldn't wear on the subway.
5$ target tee, Delia*s skirt circa 2003, 5$ fake keds from WalMart, ribbon+Swiss Army Knife

  3. That top was five dollars? Bargain. And, if I wore that necklace out in London, I would get a 2 year prison sentence. Seriously.
    It would be mine

  7. That's actually really creative, wearing that pocket knife. I love your patriotic outfit. Cute.

    Ps. Thanks for the bike tips. I've seen some rather cheap ones in antique stores but they've been so rusty that it really didn't make sense to buy them.
