Currently coveting - brooches
I seriously love a good brooch. More and more I find myself accessorising every outfit with one and leaving out the more basic jewellery like necklaces and bracelets. Sometimes there is a bit of a stigma behind brooches, that they're a bit granny-ish or for older ladies, but I don't think that's true at all. Take the little yellow bunny pin I found at a car boot for 50p, you'd be more likely to see it on a child than a grandma!
I really just love the look and little bit extra they give an outfit, and I really want to build my little collection up even more. All of my brooches I got at charity shops or car boots, the cheapest being around 50p and the most expensive being £5, but only because it's a Stratton, fur and came in the original box. I also recently got the little deer brooch I bought on ebay through the post. It's from Hong Kong so took a while to arrive, especially as it was Christmas, but it cost just £2.19 and I can't wait to wear it! What do you think of brooches, do you have any?
