Fall Favorite #5: 12 Beautifully Modern Brooches
fashionable men, fantasized about unique trends, admired J.Crew's fall collection, praised the ever-popular berry look and rounded up some beautiful bucket bags -- whew! But I'm sure you're all wondering, "Melissa, where's your trademark ode to sparkly jewelry?"
Well, of course I wouldn't forget about that. I just wanted to save the best for last. This year, brooches are making quite the statement, and we're not talking about your grandmother's dusty old brooch either. A decidedly modern update means that pieces can be worn on places besides the traditional lapel -- think on your scarf or even in your hair. And the colors?!?!? Oooh, don't even get me started on that bit of awesomeness! I've rounded up 12 of my favorite brooches...
Nina Taylor vintage-inspired brooch, $65
*Seahorse in bronze, $23
*Reclaimed vintage leaf (would look great as a hair accessory!), $16.50
*Porcelain rose floral wreath, $24.96
*Purple orchid crystal, $18.69
*Multi-colored stone wreath, $25
Paris Eiffel Tower, $11.69
*Crystal owl, $13.51
*Designsix gold pyramid, $14.50
*Pavé crystal black cat, $79.95

Also, here are five cool ways to style vintage brooches!
Do you wear many brooches, friends? Any that have been passed down from generation to generation? Do your ancestors proud and break them out this season! I dare you! xoxo
