Add Some Sparkle

Today's theme is brooches. I know a lot of time when people think of brooches, they think of old ladies in white gloves. I used to as well. A few years ago however, this box of old stuff was gifted to me and I found a set of three absolutely gorgeous costume jewelry brooches in it. Even with the slight stigma attached, I couldn't wait for a chance to wear them. I ended up wearing one of them in this photo for my shop:

And it's still my avatar on Etsy.
Ever since then I kind of became obsessed with them. It's such and easy way to add a little sparkle to any outfit. Here are some of my favorites. (Pics are clickable!)

Brooches, not just for old ladies!

  1. They are beautiful! I recently got one at a jewelry party I attended and felt obligated to buy but didn't like anything except that... it also had a place to hook up a small chain, but I ended up enjoying the way it looked as a broach!
