Style Rx // Brooch the Subject

If you have tendencies like me, then you probably LOVE baubles and bling!  And when I say love, I mean ‘like a moth to a flame’ LOVE!  I’ve hoarded collected many shiny things throughout the years, and brooches are one of my favorite items.
You can style a brooch so many ways…

And then you can get a little clever with your baubles…

These are all pictures from my previous post!  See how fun it is to “play dress up” with your accessories!  Note: On pictures 10 and 11, both were purchased as chained brooches already, but they’re great DIY inspiration!
The Style Rx:  Think outside the box!  You can wear a brooch on almost anything.  See how I pinned a brooch to a ribbon and wore it in my hair here.  Cluster a group of brooches on a denim jacket to gussy it up!  And you can even use a matching pair as shoe clips!
Happy Wednesday!  What are some other ways you’ve adorned yourself with pins and brooches?

  1. I love brooches and accessories, too. I’ve got a lot of vintage ones, as well. After looking at your post, I need to pull them out more often! ;-)

  2. Great ideas Sam! I love brooches and just got a lot from my grandmother! I usually place them on necklaces to add some extra bling, but I will have to try this out as well!


  3. These are great ideas! I always forgot about my brooches and they are so pretty. Love the tip about connecting two with a bracelet. Brilliant! Heather

  5. Turning the cardigan into a wrap top is a clever idea! Never thought of this at all.
