New Take on Vintage Brooches

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Loves, do you wear vintage brooches? I rarely do. I have one that I got from my grandma on my 18th birthday and I occasionally pin it onto my tweed blazer, but only when I’m going somewhere special. I’ve always wanted to incorporate it more to my everyday wear but I simply didn’t know how, till this morning...

I literally gasped when I spotted this sweet idea of pairing your favourite vintage brooch with an everyday hairdo. Whether it’s a messy bun, a loose braid or a slick updo, it seems to add such a charming edge to even the simplest of looks. I totally want to try it out with a top-knot, old jeans, and a slouchy blouse. J'adore!

Darlings, would you give it a go? xo

Such a wonderful idea! Def going to ask my stepdaughters if they want to wear my vintage brooches in their hair, they would look adorable!

I have a lot of brides that buy my vintage brooches to wear in their hair for their weddings and I think it's a great idea! My hair is much too short but I do wear them on my sweater and sometimes pin one to my purse :)

Fantastic, Smita! I can't wait to try it out.

Diana Mieczan said...

Awww..Di, they totally would:) You're such a sweetheart.

Love that first picture/look so much! Just pinned it - it's good to not look at repeatedly. ;)

That's a great idea! And so easy right?? :>
I've got two such brooches from my grandma, ad I sometimes wear it with my shirt, just pinned on my sleevs just like a cuff link :)

HiLLjO said...

Oh wow, I love that. I think it'd get caught in my hair, thought.

Me, too! I want to try it with some of my more drab dresses.

I actually dont really wear brooches but I think this fall I may start to incorporate them into my wardrobe more often.

It's such a beautiful look, isn't it?

Diana Mieczan said...

kishipsa, that is such a great idea - "pinned on the sleevs just like a cuff link"

Stephanie said...

Ooh, how pretty!! I haven't tried curling my hair with the bob yet, I'll have to experiment. :-)

That is a great idea! I have a few brooches and rarely wear them, so that would be a great way to "display" them.

Such a feminine, but laid back look. I love this!

Diana Mieczan said...

Totally, TheChambrayCountess!
