I was in one of the Paris flea markets recently and came across large safety pin brooches.
They had a collection of this and that on them and I thought they were charming.
Did I buy one? No, and I kick myself for it too.
At least it gave me a few ideas to work with. The brooch below is a far cry from the
Paris flea market version as it is a Dolce & Gabbana brooch for quite a bit more money
than what I was considering in the flea market. Either way, it has the charm I was looking for
and is a good reminder of what could be.

I think this brooch is equally as charming. I came across it early in my
blogging days, before noting sources. If anyone recognises it, could you let me know
where I could find it?
A dream come true if it could be found in a Paris flea market but
I think not, unless you are very lucky.....from Chanel.
Why all this talk about brooches? I came across this little ensemble (below) in
Harvey Nichols in London yesterday. I tool a quick pic...apologies for the
quality. I love the style and was happy to see brooches in play.
I am going to go back...if only to find out more about the cable pullover.
The sales woman said it is not a scarf and it is not a snood. It can be worn
over a coat as shown below, sweaters, dresses etc... I am thinking of all
the possibilities and thinking warm thoughts while I do. I found it at
Max Mara Weekend and think it is worthy of further investigation.
With those warm thoughts I wish you a very happy day/evening
where ever you are in the world. :)
