Something New and Sparkly - The Pink Badge of Kookiness




Top: Rampage, Macy's
Skirt: Material Girl, Macy's
Shoes: Madden Girl, DSW
Bag: Nine West, gifted
Belt: Wet Seal
Brooch: The Tote Trove

I don't think jaunty felt jewelry was what Stephen Crane had in mind when he wrote his classic tale of Civil War valor (or cowardice, depending on how you look at it).  Still, this brooch wields its own brand of power, a tough but tender one-two punch (of color) in a black and white world.  I especially like the way it stakes its claim on this plain gray sweater.
