My mother used to wear brooches, hat pins, scarf holders, and cardigan clips (to hold the edge of your cardigan together)….
….. but now those have fallen by the wayside. I think they are rather nice, all of them. They are jewellery of a different kind and can add so much to an outfit.
I really wish brooches were back in style. I should try and wear one every day, just to celebrate them! The British royal family usually wear them to events and they always look nice. It is surprising that they are no longer in vogue. I wonder why that is?
I have this antique Bakelite teacher’s brooch that I love to wear on my jacket. I also have an antique tie pin that I like to wear on suit jackets, on the rare occasion I wear a suit.
You can also wear a brooch on a coat, on the pocket of a jacket, on the sleeve of a jumper for a bracelet effect, on the waistband of trousers or a skirt, on a hat, on a canvas bag. And they are easy to find in thrift, antique or consignment shops, and usually cheap.
