I found this lovely gold bow brooch at a thrift store many years ago (for less than $2!) and knew I would have a blast styling it. I’ve usually added it to sweaters, headbands, and clutches for a little something extra. I had a meeting at work the other day with the executives, so I had to go for a more conservative look than my usual fun outfits. Fortunately, my boss doesn’t require a suit, nor does he like to inhibit my sense of style (he is the best). After I put on this outfit, I felt too stodgy and too conservative (it does exist!). I remembered my beloved bow, which added the perfect feminine touch to an otherwise stuffy look.
