50s costume brooches
made in Australia
I love a brooch, and I love a bit of bling. Make it retro- and I’m there. Here are six 50s costume brooches from a ladies collection of quite a few- I choose ones that appealed in a specific colour/form/50s representational kind of way. And that would look good together- one might be tempted to wear more than one at once!
All of the brooches are in exceptional condition – they have been well looked after and look like they were made yesterday [except for, you know, the 50s styling.]
I would love to keep and wear all these brooches [maybe 3 or 4 at once…] but alas my cupboard overfloweth with retro brooches and it is a shame that they aren’t been worn by rockabillies and other 50s aficionados. If you like stylish 40s-50s brooches, check out my previous posts on this fascinating subject [and see what I mean about an abundance of brooches.]
The six brooches are for sale: $AUD135
Lovely. And I’m with you…I love piling on several brooches at once or say, 6 charm bracelets. 🙂 – Karen
can’t have too much bling- and surely St Valentines Day is the time to wear it all!
I love a good vintage brooch- I sort of wish that brooches would become popular again, but then it would be a lot harder to find lovely old ones (at a reasonable price)! Yours are very pretty.
thanks; there’s a fair bit of brooch wearing going on here in Sydney, but as yet I haven’t seen anyone take up my suggestion of wearing a couple at once!
