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…

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?
