Brooches - Classic Elegance

Yesterday we covered tie pins - today we're talking brooches! For quiet some time these beautiful and unique jewelry pieces have had a bad rep - labeled as "grandma's stuff", outdated, and cheesy. However, this piece of jewelry is great because you can wear it in so many different ways - clipping it in your hair (please use bobby pins! Don't directly attach it to your skull...thanks), adding it to your blazer, or add it to your summer fedora. This little piece can customize your everyday look - just think outside the box!

Although I've seen this accessory starting to make headway in the mass market - the best place to get brooches is still the thrift store or a vintage store. Pieces from the early 1900s are like nothing on the market today - the detailing is unbeatable!

Here are some beautiful brooches:

The best part is they come in all types of shapes, sizes, colors, and styles.

This accessory is also great for adding to wedding bouquets - a great way to incorporate some special family history to your ceremony.
