I love the idea of wearing broaches in place of bow ties or bib necklaces. Obviously with this outfit, a bow tie would look ridiculous because there is no collar, but you get what I’m saying. A broach right in the center of a sweater or collared shirt (or even better: a collared shirt layered under a sweater) is a pretty eclectic style statement.

I had my doubts on whether or not this outfit was too much (the headband, the beehive, the dotted tights, the giant elephant broach) but then I was all, “Grow some big ole’ balls, Ash! Who gives a care?!”

I’m glad I listened to myself. I encourage you to do the same when feeling shy about that muumuu you’re wanting to wear out on the town, or even something less statement-y like pattern mixing, or simply wearing heels! It feels good to reach your toe (even ever so slightly) outside your comfort zone.

On the broach: I found it on ebay through an arduous process of typing “GIANT ANIMAL JEWELRY” in the search engine, then flipping through pages of results. This highly difficult technique is also how I obtained my birdbath ring,
