I’m totally smitten with and jealous of Ally’s flower necklace. This was my attempt to capture a bit of its statementy, flowery essence:
I’m all about creative brooches use, but this is the first time I’ve pinned one to a necklace. I’ve seen Audi do it and the combination was also suggested in a recent issue of In Style. I suppose the idea finally rattled around in my brain long enough to come spilling out again.
While I was looking for the link to Audi’s post, I found Already Pretty’s “how to” entry on making an entire necklace of brooches. I’m copying her next.
I’ll claim the idea of using a brooch to nip in the waist of a top as my own, though. I was so flattered to see other wardrobe bloggers borrowing my trick.
(It's probably a bit difficult to see here, but I have a small, pink brooch gathering the material at the back of this blazer for a close fit.)
