Bold Brooches

Bold Brooches
Row 1: Mirror // Perfume // Tea Pot | Row 2: Bee // Chanel // Dog | Row 3: Panther // Scotty // Lipstick
Row 4: Tie // Watermelon // Spider | Row 5: Candy // Bird // Seahorse

Apparently brooches aren't just for your grandma anymore. Who knew? I don't have a collection myself but would definitely be willing to add a few of the ones above to my jewelry box. I think they're a great alternative to the typical sparkle that I'm usually drawn to. Rachel from A Preppy State of Mind has the most adorable collection of brooches and styles them perfectly.

Tell me your thoughts - to pin or not to pin?

I have quite a collection! Love them so much. My fav is mink with pearls, it was a gift from my Mama! I do have a couple from both of my grandmothers. Try them, you will love them.

I love brooches so much! I have a modest collection that I used to wear years ago, but stopped. I like that they are coming back. I'll have to dig them out of my jewelry box.

Love brooches! I often use vintage clip on earrings as brooches, too!

You should definitely pin. I have raided my tucked away box with vintage pins from my mom, grandmother, and grandmother-in- law and will most certainly be pinning.

I have a few brooches that my dad gave me from work but they are kinda dowdy. I do like these fun ones though.

LOVE this. I always liked the idea of having a signature brooch that I could wear on everything! May have to get on that.

I wear a pretty vintage one on a jacket occasionally but I honestly usually forget about it! I'm going to try to remember it more often because it's super cute!
