What2Add: Bee Brooch-Day 1

dress: french connection// shoes: converse// bag: old navy, brooch on bag: stella & dot// sunnies: ray ban// jewelry:, michael kors, sylvia benson, stella & dot

I just love vintage and vintage inspired brooches....I'm always on the hunt for them. When I saw this one in the Stella & Dot lookbook I knew I had to have it and when I opened the box and saw it in person for the first time it was love at first sight. The hand painted enamel is aboslutely stunning and the flash of turquoise really adds something special. I think brooches are the perfect way to bring a little life into your accessories collection without spending an arm and a leg. I'm going to show you 3 ways I like to wear brooches over the next 3 as you can see its pinned to a bag. I just love that a funky brooch can ad that extra umph to an outfit, ya know what I mean?
You can purchase this brooch here on sale for only $29.25, that's insane people!
