A Forever 21 Brooch is a Girl's Best Friend!

I love Forever 21 -- decent quality items for really cheap, the latest runway trends for an affordable cost, and easily accessible locations throughout the Inland Empire, Los Angeles, and Orange County regions; the areas that my clients and I reside, work, or frequently visit.

Now as you admire these brooches, which are all from Forever 21 and range between $3 - $8, I hope you are imagining how many ways you can incorporate brooches in your wardrobes. Remember, versatility is an important factor to always consider when shopping -- especially when the economy seems to raining on everyone's parade these days. So to make your (literally) few bucks last when it comes to purchasing a vintage-inspired brooch, here are Top 5 ways you can play with this must-have Fall/ Winter accessory:

(1) Pin it on your scarf at the knot or at the end of a hanging piece

(2) Use it for practicality purposes by clasping together an open sweater, turning it into a chic cardigan-like third piece

(3) Wear it on your handbag for some added sass

(4) Fancy up a button-up top by wearing it on the collar

(5) Attach it to a plain thick belt so it appears as a glamorous buckle

Can you think of another way to wear a brooch? Tell me, I'm all ears! For another type of cutesy accessory, turn to Join the Gossip featuring Leeann's new Kenley-inspired favorite item. (Leeann also wears brooches for some flair!)

*Before and after styling pictures of my clients coming soon, where I will be using their existing pieces for fresh, new looks. Be sure to notice the brooch as a key piece in some of the photos.

A Forever 21 broach at that! =) What about wearing it on a plain cotton headband if it's not too heavy? It could make a darling hair accessory...I think I'm going to try it!

Oh I just love accessories! These brooches are not bad for forever21. I like to wear them as a bracelet sometimes. Just get plain ribbon, cut and tailor to your wrist, then pin on the brooch. ;)

Thanks for the comment, I can't wait to catch up and read more of your blogs. I'm going to add you to a blogroll, too. Have a good night!
