Would be interesting for Pirate game day- reminds me of old school football mum corsages. Look into your husband´s closet and maybe you can find a colorful tie that is no longer in use. Pin it up with a beautiful brooch. Cool and different!
I often wear suits without a tie - work or out on the town. I like this style because its sharp but not stuffy. On a Saturday night its not unusual for me to be at an event, so I often will wear something similar. Most guys will either have a suit on or standard dress clothes, so I like to be a bit unique in this category.
