Broaching Brooches

By Susan King, guest poster and renowned blogger

I love brooches.

They can really make an outfit special and tell the public something about you or how you are feeling that day. They can also be a reminder of something or someone. I wish I had a brooch from each of my grandmothers and mother. My sister may have some, but I doubt it. I am going to ask her anyway. But she is not the type of woman who would wear or keep them. She might surprise me.

My problem with wearing a brooch is how to wear one. I found this nice collage with six ways to wear a brooch. I am going to incorporate more brooches in my outfits.

    A GG friend once told me that it's details like these that make an "outfit" and give a girl that mysterious quality - "confidence"..
    I think gaining an understanding of how to select and include all those small details is one of the harder feminine arts to master.

    I forgot to add - it's made even more difficult for us as there's no male equivalent. We aren't used to thinking in these terms.
