Has a style item ever reminded you of something, but then you couldn't place what it was? That's me with this ribbon pin I spotted on Nordstrom.com; I knew it felt familiar, and that I really liked it. I connected the dots later that it's an uncanny match to the trim that Gucci uses on many of their current items. It's truly a designer look for a less, and I'm all about it! This $29 ribbon pin can be clipped or pinned on, and instantly spruces up old items I've had for years. Don't you love when an accessory packs so much punch and has the ability to make an old outfit look new?!
