When we reach a certain age (ahem)... it's unavoidable. Our skin starts to lose elasticity and firmness. We start to develop fine lines and wrinkles.

I've collected brooches since I was a teen. My grandmother's, my mom's, vintage, contemporary, sparkly gems, classic pearls -- I have a case full of them. So, when on my recent trip to Paris, I saw gorgeous brooches both alone and in clusters popping up on tweed jackets at Chanel, I got excited to pull out my stash and start playing.
