    Default Brooch Love

    Hi everyone! The only kind of jewelry I'm asking for this Christmas is BROOCHES! The reason: I have so many cardis and sweaters that are just a solid color, and without a scarf, big necklace or something else, are just a bit boring. I think a pretty sparkly pin is just the thing to add that bling.

    Do you love brooches? How many do you have? Any that you are currently desiring right now? Let me know!

    I brooches!! I wear it on jackets, on scarves, pinned on fabric belts as a buckle, so many ways. I have a ton but I love medieval designs for brooches such as this one:



    My favourite ones though have to be Hermes and Chanel:

    The first brooch is

    I don't wear brooches typically. For some reason brooches on cardigans makes me think "granny"

    I have only one brooch (just an ordinary one) pinned to my gray formal winter coat. You have given me ideas on how it can be used. I never thought of pinning it to a belt or using as a pendant

    I too, like frbspa, have a thing for brooches. I love that you can wear the simplest outfit, and then add a brooch, and 'voila'! you have instant style and personality to what could be an otherwise boring outfit.

    My favourite brooches are antique ones.

    I used to think brooches were for Grannys too, but I think if you get pretty ones that look modern you can escape this trap. (I've read Nina Garcia's style books and she helped me get a more positive perspective on this kind of jewelry.) Thanks everyone for sharing your faves! They are beautiful!

    The Camellia brooch is gorgeous. Who is that modeling it? She looks familiar.
    If love is the answer, what is the question?
