Holy Flower, Batman!

Awhile back, I posted my Wish List of flower pins that I've been drooling over, including this beauty from Anthropologie.


So, I bought it, without paying any attention to its size dimensions. When I got the package, I was super excited. Then I saw it. It's GINORMOUS. Seriously, it swallows my palm, and it's way more ruffly than I expected.


There's no way I can use it with the hair pin, and it even looks clownish pinned to a cardi. I thought about returning it, but I just l-o-v-e the coral color. So, I ransacked my closet, thinking maybe I could pin it to a cute black top or summer dress. Then I spotted my sad heap of purses and bags ... do you see where I'm going with this? Yep, exactly, I pinned it to a bag. I wish I was a better photographer {I blame the lighting?}, but it looks soo cute on my woven turquoise bag ...



I even like it on this Lands End bag my mom gave me last year.



Guess it's a keeper!
