Wardrobe Wednesday

I was looking for a unique way to add sparkle to a bland, 60's-cut sweater... but it needed to be MY kind of sparkle.  I dove into my vintage jewelry box and retrieved a few crystal shoe clips and some dazzling earrings and made a little Vintage Collage Brooch!

Also, I can't stop wearing THIS outfit...
