I have a rolling ‘wish list’ that I keep on my phone. It is filled with all the lovely potential purchases; things I’d like to buy if I have the pennies and can find them at a price I am happy to pay. I am a very frugal shopper, and I find that listing my current ‘must have’s’ actually gives be focus when I have the energy to hit the high street, or when I’m looking around online, so I don’t get reeled in my impulse purchases. Well, not often. 😉
I have a very minor problem, which thus far I have been using safety pins to remedy. No, whatever my fiancee has been telling you, I don’t need my lip buttoned shut. However well the fit, I often have a gaping problem with certain necklines, which can leave my ta-ta’s rather exposed. This is even more of a problem as the view most people get of me is from above. The other day, when pinning yet another neckline, I had an epiphany. Why have I been making do with a simple safety pin for all this time, when I could throw some bling at the situation. There is never a situation that a bit of bling cannot make better. Enter my lineup of brooches or pins, statement or sophisticated. These are my current picks, for your viewing pleasure.
I have to say, I really love some of the animal brooches available at the moment, but some of the simpler designs are just as beautiful. Understated bling is still bling. These were a few of my top pick, but there are 100’s of gorgeous pins online.
Do you like brooches? New or vintage, large or small? Are you a gold or silver girl? I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments, as they never fail to make me smile.
