BADGE OF HONOUR

Brooches are totally one of my things. They are such an easy, cheap, cool way of conveying personality through style. I have a small collection of brooches and badges, and here is a selection of them!

I think I have had this tiny peacock brooch since I was little. I assume it was my mother's, but it has always sat in my jewellery box, waiting for me to grow into it. Like a lot of my mum's old stuff, I used to think it was daggy, but Past Jess had no style!

The moustachioed dinosaur is from my friend Kaari, for my last birthday. It's from Etsy and it's made of felt and it's awesome and suave and adorable.

I can't even remember where I got the amber-stone brooch, but I never wear it because it's too fancy. It's like something I would wear if I were invited to some posh award ceremony. But I love the design anyway.

These badges were from Smiggle, I think, back when they first opened. I bought a bunch of them, but the "this badge is intentionally blank" one was the best of the lot. So witty and ironic! Like me!

Okay, some of these photos were actually taken on different days, I just wear collared shirts all the time. Anyhow, the polar bear brooch is from A Skulk of Foxes and it's my favourite, I wear it all the time with everything. The space invader one is also from Smiggle, I believe.

So there you have it! I want to expand my collection and I'm looking for more animal-themed badges. I'm thinking a sloth, because sloths are the shit.

  3. I like how brooches are your thing, these ones are cute. I don't have any of my own, though, I'm not much of an accessoriser!

  4. Ohh, I always envy people who pull of brooches nicely. As far as my accessories are concerned, a wear a watch, ring, earrings.. and occasionally a scarf or necklace... but that's it.

    I really like your collared shirts too... I should invest in them more. They're nice. :)
