put a pin on it

 The brooch.

I used to think that these ladylike embellishments were reserved for the over 50 crew but now I’m changing my mind.  After seeing some of my favorite bloggers sport these trinkets, I think I may have to try this trend.

Here are some of the brooches I’m loving…

From the top left, clockwise ~ Juicy Couture Safety Pin Brooch, Natasha Couture Deco Brooch (under $40), Givenchy ‘Femme’ Sunburst Brooch, Givenchy ‘Femme’ Glass Pearl & Crystal Brooch, Alexis Bittar ‘Teatro Modern’ Statement Pin, Nordstrom Brooch (under $50),  Tasha Encrusted Oval Brooch (under $60)

Ps. I love the idea of pinning a brooch around a bunch of pearls.  Here’s the Givenchy ‘Femme’ Sunburst pin from above, combined with a similar looking necklace.  Wouldn’t that look amazing with a black jacket and black leather jeans???  Le sigh.

Ladies, do you wear brooches, or do you find them too old fashioned?
