Barrette: The Tote Trove
Suits are usually no nonsense. That's kind of what makes them suits. Whenever I'm presented with such a stern, utilitarian look, I can't help but mess with it, even if just a little. Apparently I'm not alone in this. In that now-infamous and much-blogged-about "New Girl" episode Jess (Zooey Deschanel) faces off with Nick's uptight lawyer girlfriend about the boredom of boardroom fashion (and so much more!): "And I hate your pants suit. I wish it had ribbons on it or something just to make it slightly cuter but that doesn’t mean I’m not smart and tough and strong.” Riveting, no? This little Fabulous Felt Strawberry Pair Barrette of mine seemed like a smart, sassy way to pin on the pretty. Take that, briefcase.
