I picked up this pin at 50% off, plus an additional 10% off because I'm a Museum member. It was the last one in stock and I liked it because the outer petals have a very Art Deco look. The photo doesn't do it justice, it's shiny and well made. It's very striking and I think it will look amazing pinned to a crisp black suit or cocktail dress.

And, don't forget to check out the new installation and the beautiful view from the MET's roof. The Museum is open late on Fridays and Saturdays and there is a bar on the roof top. One of my friends took this incredible shot of the Manhattan skyline when we were up there last Friday evening.
