i think it's great!
you can dress them up or down so you won't give off a 'too matronly' vibe.

I think there is a fine line between grandma-y brooches and just plain sexy ones.

I'm currently dying for a 50s/60s enamel flower one and a HUUGGEE rhinestone sunbursty one. I'll keep my eye out for those, no luck yet in vintage stores and the new ones in Macys and places are kinda too tame for me.

I love brooches!

I wear them on my cardigans (instead of using the buttons), on blazers and jackets, and on my vintage scarves and shawls. Unfortunately I don't have that many brooches myself, but I think I'll make my way over to ebay . I did see the cutest brooch yesterday though, a flower enamel one, in the coolest green colour

I'm so jealous of my grandmother, she has the most amazing collection of brooches. She wears a different one every time I see her, it's her number 1 fashion accessory .

I went to a yard sale today and found some beautiful vintage brooches!! They belonged to the lady's mother, and the lady didn't wear jewellery, so she was just selling all of it!

I got a blue plastic elephant with a rhinestone eye, a wreath with tiny faux pearls and rhinestones, a rose and a bow with locket! The lady insisted on giving me the red metal elephant with the rolling eyes, because she said that he and the blue elephant were brothers...

So happy now

The blue elephant one is just I like the red elephants eyes. They are like the ones on the funny stickers I had when I was small. Very cute.

I love when the sellers are talkative like the lady you bought them from. Guess you should wear the elephants at the same time too now that they are brothers
