I've adored owls since taking an elementary school field trip to the Pecatonica Forest Preserve. They are such elegant creatures, aren't they? Despite my admiration of them, I only just recently began incorporating their beauty into my wardrobe. Owl-fred is the pioneer of my collection.
Name :: Owl-fred
Origin :: Owl-fred is a broach, adopted from the Rockford Antique Mall.
Best feature :: Large blue eyes and lots of character. In his former life he lost track of a few rhinestones, but it’s only led to maturity and enlightenment (note the furrowed brow).
Favorite things :: Pearls, Peter Pan collars, and silky scarves.
Hobbies :: Thinking pensively and socializing with other intellectual broaches.
Why I love him :: Broaches, though such small pieces, can add character and sophistication to an outfit. Because Owl-fred is gold and serious, he adds that sophistication. But then because he is missing a few rhinestones, he also adds personality. I considered replacing the rhinestones at one time, but I'm a person who likes the perfection of imperfections. I like the quirks.
