The reason Piper loved it: I have a couple brooches I've inherited that I'll keep forever. This mom put a pin right in the middle of her dress—rather than off to the side—so it almost looks like it's part of the design. I thought that was cool and modern. It reminded me of first lady Michelle Obama in the Maria Pinto fitted dress with the brooch detail.
