My brooch collection is rather large these days, but I just can’t say no to more Christmas brooches! Luckily for me, Erstwilder has another cute range out this year for me to get my mit(ten)s on. And if you find early November too soon for Christmas, maybe I won’t tell you I bought a new tree (more on the whys of a third new tree in as many years later) and claiming I was ‘testing it out’ set it up and then left it 😀
Anyway, as much as I’m sure you want me to ramble on some more about a tree you’ve never seen, let’s show you some ways I’m thinking of styling the brooches…

It’d be easy to go overboard on the green and red to compliment this brooch, but I thought I’d mix it up a bit and go for a darker emerald green and burgundy pairing, which helps it stand out. I’ll be honest, I look for any way to wear my new holly hair piece (on sale soon from Alternate Normality!). This was actually commissioned (by me) to match a dress I’ll share with you closer to Christmas, so it’s not the last you’ll see of it. Anyway, I never feel any home is decorated for Christmas without a wreath, so this brooch was an easy choice for me – I love the glitter in the red parts.

The village tree brooch! Which is actually a lot bigger than I was expecting (kind of like the real thing), so it works well with a slash neck top because it needs the material. I like the mint green on this brooch because it’s one of my favourite colours – and the mix of silver/grey and mint green is kind of subtly festive. Lovely.
