Merry Christmas and a Happy 2012!

Start with a brooch

Coro, 1940s

"If you want to start a collection, start with a brooch because you will find most use for it. It can be pinned on a suit lapel, collar or pocket, on a hat, belt, or evening gown." - Coco Chanel

Sarah Coventry,  early 1960s

Trifari, 1960s
What a smart quote! I totally agree! And if you're like me, maybe you would prefer a classic piece for everyday wear, something nice to go with style to work, to the cinema or just hang around  with friends, and probably you would choose something dazzling to wear on special occasions. But a brooch is definetly a must have piece!
