I know what you're thinking. "My grandmother wears brooches." Yeah, yeah, yeah. Honestly, during the advent of embellishments, embroidery, and patches it seems like a natural time to appreciate what a nice little collection of brooches can bring to the table. Whether they're vintage or not, sometimes a little extra glitz is exactly what an outfit needs. Full disclosure: these brooches are from my local craft store, but every time I wear them I get SO many compliments. You'd never know they cost less than $10 collectively. I love a look for less.
