Obsession: Brooches

My new current jewelry obsession is brooches. Perfect for putting on the lapel of a blazer or spring jacket, holding scarves together, or pinning to a hat or headband, I just can't get enough of them. Not only that, but they also tend to be a little cheaper than most other jewelry. Below are the two culprits responsible for spurring my obsession. Both I purchased from Junction located on U Street.

I also went on a very looong etsy scavenge to find the best of the best. Below are some of my faves.

I love the use of felt in this brooch from AAliciaAccessories and how it looks like it is part of the neckline of the shirt.

I think the mix of different materials in this pin by Shury make it really special. So lovely.

Another one of my current obsessions is mustaches, so how could I not feature this adorable mustache brooch by LittleAngelsJewelry?

I'm also really digging all of the state themed pins. This Arkansas pin by MrPS is great because of it's simplicity.

The Georgia Brooch by Tea and Laundry adds a little something extra for the crowd.

This brooch by NoaSharonDesigns is so modern and yet so delicate. Love!

This wooden monkey pin from PonyParade is so whimsical. It would look perfect on a colorful scarf.

Another wooden pin from Palomina. The faux bois adds a nice touch to the typical heart shape.

This Knotty Pretzle pin by RubyVegas is so sculptural. It's like wearing a work of art on your lapel.

I'm a sucker for the classics and can't help but love this classic filigree brooch from WhoopKat.

Another vintage brooch this one is from Sifteddocta. The leaf looks like it might disintegrate between your fingers if you touch it.

This Gunslinger pin from Proteales is so precious. Would work great as a tie pin for your guy.

And finally, this black brooch from AnastasiaJamin caught my eye because it was so different from everything else I have seen.
