Today's post showcases brooches and I took pictures of the two I posess. I purchased these beauties at a thrift shop (of course) and found them to be utterly charming. I imagine a lady in the 40's wearing a fancy dress cooking her holiday dinner with the table set beautifully, her husband sitting by the fire smoking his pipe with the children gathered around reading books. She's calmly preparing the meal, looking elegant and sophisticated with her brooch sparkling in the Christmas lights, a real woman of style and class. Fast forward to 2009 and today's woman frenzily prepares her dinner from Trader Joe's, while wearing whatever clothes she hastily threw on, while juggling the driving of her children to the various activities they have, while her husband (if she has one) is sitting by the fire smoking his pipe......haha!! Ok maybe I overexaggerated but times are different and for the most part women don't dress like they used to. I admire women who take the time to put themselves together and I especially admire women who dress in vintage as it's so creative and fun. So to you ladies who dress up and put on your dresses, good job!! I think I'll put on one of these sparkley brocches for our holiday dinner and play the Donna Reid role for 5 mins or so. If nothing else it'll be good for a laugh!!!
