I did not do a good job of photographing my outfits this past week; in fact, I only caught one outfit on film (does that still apply when it's digital?). However, it was my favorite outfit of the week - perhaps because of the little budded beauty pinned on!
I received this off-white satin fabric flower brooch from treasure darling Etsy shop. This flower caught my eye when I was browsing Etsy and just said "simply elegant." Connie was so great to work with - this little off-white beaut is a wonderful addition to any woman's wardrobe. The best thing about it? Connie uses NO patterns - all flowers are handmade and are just a bit different from one another. No one else will have your exact flower brooch - making your outfit totally unique.
I wanted to show you the back - the little details. You can see that the pin is stitched securely on the backing - an extra piece of material right under it to ensure its quality. And really, my boys have been enamored with this brooch so it's been man-handled (boy-handled) a lot and it's taken well to the beating.
With the holidays coming up, I know many of you will be enjoying celebrations and parties with families and friends. I think this little brooch would be the perfect touch to your cocktail dress or cute outfit. The right touch of feminine and elegant. Now spending $32 on a flowered brooch may seem a bit much for some of you, but I can assure you that you will wear it often. I've been trying to somehow wear mine in my hair (although I have no hair expertise so I'm having little luck) - but I do wear it with many outfits. I have a lot of plain shirts that this brooch dresses up really nicely. I appreciate something that works overtime: I don't spend a lot of time planning what I'm going to wear but when I put this little finishing touch on, it makes it seem much more planned out and put together.
Treasure darling is not just a handmade shop; Connie also stocks some vintage pieces. Like these very Madonna-like white lace gloves:
Pair those with these Vintage 80s Prima Royale Floral Print Lace High Tops:
Connie also makes some fantastic pieces (as shown in my brooch). The best thing about her shop is that there is a price range for everyone and an item for every woman. Little accessories are so important to piece together an outfit. I appreciate small details that help me look like I know something about fashion (when in fact, I don't). Like this print fabric rosette necklace with vintage beads:
