I love brooches but I don't actually own them. Not even one. I have some pins that I put in the lapels of my jackets but I do not have any brooches. I saw some lovely ones in an antique shop the other day and I suppose I will get one there eventually. After all they are quite trendy these days.
However, for me it is never about what other people wear, I want to be me, and I will wear something not because other people wear it, but because I like the way I look with that something on.
A brooch is a very feminine accessory and every self respecting lady should own one. I suppose that simply means I am not a lady...
