Feeling Inspired By… Brooches at Chanel

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. While the translucent Chanel flower is covetable, I have a few flowers that serve beautifully as an anchor brooch surrounded by a colorful pin and another metallic one. Three brooches clustered together in different shapes and sizes, but complementary materials and colors, is a fun way to style this feminine and oh-so-Parisian look.

When it comes to accessorizing with jewelry, I subscribe to fashion icon Iris Apfel’s approach — “More is more and less is a bore!”

More pretty Chanel brooch clusters… oo la la!  I pulled these pins together into groupings from the Spring 2018 and Cruise Collections — available in Chanel boutiques only.
