I can't begin to tell you how much I LOVE these beautiful hand-cut felt floral brooches. I received Orange Love and immediately pinned it to a gray, crew-neck short-sleeve sweater. Because the brooch is slightly rounded, it curved around the neckline of the sweater perfectly making it look as if the sweater was made with the pretty florals. When I wore it to work, I got half-a-dozen compliments (even from guys!) about how beautiful my sweater was. One person asked if my sweater was from Anthropologie, which, considering how expensive Anthropologie is, says a lot about how much oomph! the floral brooch gave my $8 sweater. You can see from the photos I posted below what my sweater looked like before (pretty plain, huh!) and what a difference it made afterwards (whee!).
What I especially love is that these soft floral brooches can be pinned to dresses, the collar of a jacket or even a handbag. They come in a variety of eye-catching color combos and sizes (medium and large typically, but if you prefer smaller or larger, just convo the designer). You can even convo the designer to create a customized piece to match a particular outfit - or imagine how gorgeous one would be on a wedding dress!
If you rather dress up your hair than your outfit, the designer also creates the same floral designs as hair pins. Such a pretty, feminine way to add color and flair. Would look totally stunning in short or long hair styles.
The designer cuts each petal meticulously by hand, so no two pieces are exactly alike. Kind of like real flowers! "My designs explore a contemporary take on ‘floral’ that is luxurious and glamorous,without being heavy or overblown," says Anna, the designer behind these wearable art pieces. I'm thinking this Winter Love hair pin would look particularly stunning on long, dark, glossy hair!
