I love the classics: movies, music, vintage styles, I am basically an old lady by association.
Thanks to Maggie and her grandmother, I have recently acquired two brooches. What ever happened to brooches? It is such a simple way to accessorize an outfit. Although, after a little research, I discovered that brooches were originally meant to hold clothing closed. WHAT? Stylish AND functional? Insane.
Literally, unless it a famous person has a professional stylist that puts a brooch on them, I rarely see anyone wearing them. Obviously I love them - I wouldn't be writing a post about them if I didn't. They are classy, eye-catching, sometimes they have special meanings behind them, and gosh-darnit I don't have any piercings so I need another outlet.
Brooches not just a decoration for clothing. I have noticed that a brooch bouquet is popular with brides these days. Also, a great hair accessory. As I searched for these pictures, I was also filled with a need to get more brooches. Oh darn.
If they are good enough for the Queen of England, then they are good enough for me.
