The other day when I was answering some of my readers questions I posted photos wearing this fabulous cardigan but I didn't share more information about my outfit and now here I am to do so.
My staples as of late are simple ones that can be paired with a terrific cardigan and a brooch as a conversation piece. This specific outfit has two of my favorite staples; a white Peter Pan Collar Blouse from Boden and a black Cotton Skirt with pockets from eShakti. You cannot go wrong with those two pieces. Pair it up with a fun cardigan and you can change that up over and over and still look fabulous.
For this outfit I wore a Anthropologie cardigan called Shoreline Scallop Cardigan Sparrow in yellow. They come in different colors and I scored mine via Ebay. My conversation piece is this incredibly beautiful brooch handmade by Rose Hudson whose shop on Etsy is called Happy Rose. I really love her work. She is so creative, the brooches are made of high quality, and she packages everything like so beautifully that I always yelp with joy when opening them.
I have worn a brooch of Rose's before in my Lady in Green... post in September. She also will make a brooch of the character of your choosing and right now I am debating between Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Great Tyrant from Barbarella. I may just ask her to do both! She is that good.
And there you go. Pick two staple pieces from your wardrobe and add a little zest to it with a unique top or cardigan and a conversation piece like a brooch, handbag, or flower crown. My Frida brooch means so much to me because I am a big fan of Frida Kahlo's artwork and how she lived her life. There is no doubt that this has become one of my favorite brooches in my collection.
