Happy Sunday my fashion friends!! As promised this is part two of my blog with the focus on Brooches. Now how many of you are saying Brooches are for OLD PEOPLE!!! Trust me a year or so ago I would have agreed with you and now Brooches are THE COOL accessory.
Decorating your jacket with a statement making brooch is so on trend right now. This season it's all about the sparkle. You can wear a cluster for a big impact or just one fabulous piece like the one I'm wearing here. This is the Rebekah Price Hilda brooch and it's multicoloured and big and fabulous. My daughter is even wearing a custer of brooches on her military jacket that came from Aldo so it's possible for everyone to get on the Brooch trend.
One of the first brooches I ever remember liking is the Chanel Camellia. It to me is the utmost in chic and ladylike. Here is the history of the Chanel Camellia:
One of the most instantly recognizable emblems in all of Chanel’s accessories, clothing and jewellery, is the frequently recurring camellia. Coco Chanel first fell in love with the camellia after reading Alexandre Dumas’ ‘La Dame aux Camélias’, a story in which the heroine always wore a white camellia, showing to the world that her heart remained pure. It was also loved by Chanel because, when wearing the flower, its lack of scent meant it never interfered with her most famous perfume – No. 5.
This is the original Vintage Chanel Camellia. Now you can get it like this or jewelled or in colours.
