Ladies, brooches are not just your GRANNIES go to…it should be YOURS TOO! When most women think of brooches they think of a woman of a certain age however brooches are a must have accessory for women of all ages.

Brooches instantly ‘class up’ your look. There  is something truly lady-like and dainty about a brooch. It’s a fantastic way to elevate your outfit. You don’t have to  feel limited to placing them on your lapel either…

– Clasp it to your necklaces

– Center one on your collar

– Group them together in 2’s and 3’s

-Pin them unto your scarves

-Add it to your outerwear

– Embellish your clutches

Here are some reasonably priced brooches with a certain je ne sais quoi :

My favorite place to find brooches are those random thrift shops where you know the pieces have had a previous life before you’ve become its’ owner. Hope you’ll try getting ‘pinned’ this fall ladies…
