Statement-Making Brooches

When I saw the following article in NY Mag about brooches ... I took a walk down memory lane. 


When the leaves start to fall and it's time to take out the tweed, what could be more glamorous than jazzing up your jacket with a sparkly brooch? Pin a red-hot rhinestone sunburst to your lapel for maximum wattage, or go for an edgier look with draped chains. Brooches are one of those accessories that never really go out of style, of course, but they still glinted in the spotlight at Armani Privé, Dolce & Gabbana, and other runway shows.

I love brooches.  And I still have every single one, I've collected ... umm, back then.  

I fell in love with brooches, and started to collect them.  I remember visiting Sydney, Australia in October 2004, and every single outfit was accompanied with a brooch; from sweaters to jackets, to cardigans to hats.  

Every time Michelle Obama rocks one I'm always ready to pull out my stash!
Oh oh ... one is broken!
