Durango street style: Enamel pins

by Patty Templeton

Sometimes your bopping along minding your own business when WAPOW! Coolness splatters across your path. This week, that raditude came in the form of Katie Chicklinski-Cahill, the Arts and Entertainment editor of the Durango Herald. Ms. Katie sports fantabulous 1950s-style glasses and a collection of enamel pins.

The pin theme of the day was horror. DGO asked her what was up with that.

“I like horror movies. I think it’s because I’m an anxious person. No, seriously. There was this article that said that anxious people tend to gravitate toward horror movies because it is a nice, contained anxiety. Do you know what I mean? If you’re nervous, you have a reason to be nervous and it takes away some of the anxiety or gives it a healthier outlet. For an hour and a half I can be nervous about Freddy (Krueger) and not bills or that lump or the scabs or ya know [laughs]?

[When asked if Chicklinkski-Cahill often had lumps or scabs she said] I haven’t checked today. Why? Do you see any?! [laughs]

My Eraserhead pin is really cool. What else do I have? Eraserhead is good. Marge (Simpson) is pretty awesome. If Eraserhead and Marge fought who do you think would win? Look at her. [growls and shakes pin]

I think pins are cool because it’s not a big commitment and they’re under the radar. I can still have my work outfit on and accessorize, jazz it up, ya know?
