Forever New Haul & Accessorizing A Skirt

You see an expensive-looking Metallic Brocade Skirt at 50% off (under 900 bucks) + it's the last piece + it's in your size. What do you do? You grab it & try it on (outside, coz the trial rooms are all occupied.) 
You don't really need this skirt (and you have another FN off-white skirt you bought almost 2 years ago & have never worn), so you're confused whether or not to buy it. 30% buy, 70% don't buy. Then a girl wearing nothing but a white banyan (under shirt) pops out of a trial cubicle & asks you if you're buying the skirt. You're terrified! "YES. WHY?" clutching the skirt tighter.
Girl in banyan: A little embarrassed & right hand on chest "No... I'm just asking. If you're not buying then I'll try it on"
Yes, you're buying it. You just needed a minute to think.

Okay, you is I. I bought the skirt, and I'm glad I did :).  I also got this cute soft gold quilted faux leather bow, that can be worn as a brooch or a hair clip....

I think it would add some casualness & "cute" to this rather formal-looking skirt.
Let's see how the bow looks in different places....

Now I just need to find a top that would go with those. I'm thinking plain off-white sleeveless georgette with a little bit of ruffles. By the way, the Forever 21 earrings go really well with this skirt.

Metallic Brocade Skirt ~ Rs.895 (from Rs.1800)
Quilted Leather Bow ~ Rs.145 (from Rs.300)
Total ~ Rs.1050. Best/Cheapest buys from Forever New!

Where do you think the bow looks best?

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
