Vintage brooches are just the thing for adding a vintage touch to an outfit. Here are some of my vintage brooches and some of the ways I add them to outfits.
Above is my 50's sterling silver marcasite bow brooch from ebay. It has no brand mark but is marked England. The brooch is attached to a woollen thin scarf/neck tie which is actually a belt from one of my cardigans.
This 50's/60's Winard brooch is from etsy. It's gold filled and features a cultured pearl, and is attached to a scarf tied in a European Loop.
I found this 50's/60's embroidered ballerina brooch on ebay. It's set in a goldtone frame with a plastic front, and is attached to the centre of a top.
I also found this 50's/60's brooch by Krementz on ebay. It's gold filled with blue rhinestones, and is attached to the tie of a tie-front bolero.
These two brooches are attached to the collar area of a cardigan. The little round brooch is an etsy find. It's by Krementz, is gold filled, and features a cultured pearl.
The heart brooch was gifted to me by Helen from Blossom and Cat. Hand made with great care by Helen, the brooch is from her "I heart you" range of brooches...and I heart it! I featured some of Helen's other handmade lovelies in two posts here last year - Blossom and Cat and Their Song Birds. I also featured Helen's swoon-worthy wedding here in 2010 - A Sydney Beach Wedding.
Another ebay find, this is my 50's rhinestone encrusted rhodium plated brooch by Ciro Pearls. It's attached to a macrame bag.
A few more of my brooches can be seen in these previous posts: Fashion Plate, My Bluebird of Happiness, and Victorian Revival Splendour.
Best wishes until next time all! :)
