Jewelry In Your Hair

Vintage jewelry in the hair, worn as Liz Taylor would have, is fancy and glamorous:

Worn modern style, it’s just a fun and pretty look.

Pinning the brooch to a ribbon is an easy way to add some sparkle.

They look great on short hair, too:

In all of these styles, the brooch is not actually holding the hair; there’s something else, like a clip or a bobby pin doing that job. The brooches are just a bit of added sparkle.

I am a vintage clothing shop owner living and working in rural north Florida. I believe in adding a little vinegar and molasses to my greens, having my coffee outside whenever possible, and mixing something vintage into every room and every outfit.
