Things I Love: Brooches and Pins
It’s common knowledge that I’m a retro junkie – I love all things 40’s and 50’s and have been known to dress the part on occasion. I don’t like to fork out a lot of dough for some things like other vintage lovers do – I just don’t have the opportunities to dress vintage or incorporate it into everyday life in a big way. Enter the brooch. I feel every woman should own at least one – vintage or not. It spruces up even the blandest of outfits, and can really add that finishing touch when needed. It can dress up jeans and a cute sweater, or top off that classic black dress for an evening on the town.
This lovely pin is perfect for those dressier occasions – the gold tone base really adds a touch of class and there are pearls and topaz-colored stones throughout to add sparkle. Use it to fasten your black or ivory scarf, or perhaps a black or deep jewel-colored beret if you’re a hat gal.
Do you have a favorite accessory that you just can’t get enough of?
