It's All About the Brooch

My good friend Amanda gave me this gorgeous Chanel brooch as a graduation present.  I really love brooches and think they look great on a blazer - I might never again wear my black blazer without this on it!  Brooches are incredibly versatile.  They can be very dressy or very casual.  You can wear one on your collar, hip or lapel; pin it on a dress, jacket or shirt; you can opt for just one or wear many at a time - the possibilities are endless.  Most importantly, they give your outfit interest.  Below are some of my favorite images of women wearing brooches.
