Vintage 70's Brooch

26 March 2015

Hello Everyone!
Hope you have had a good week so far!

Today's post is all about a beautiful vintage 1970's brooch from Style by Portobello.  I won it in a giveaway they hosted a couple of weeks ago and it arrived earlier this week so I thought I would style it for an outfit post!

Firstly, Style by Portobello is a online subscription box brand, offering to send you three hand picked vintage items in a monthly box. It can be anything from vintage jewellery, scarves to small bags. I think it is a wonderful idea and it is perfect for those who don't have access to vintage boutiques or markets. You should definitely check them out, they send out some amazing items!!
Here is the link to their website! - Style by Portobello.

Below is how I decide to style my 70's brooch, hope you like it!

Denim Jacket - Topshop
Shirt - H&M
Skirt - Topshop
Brooch - Style by Portobello
Silk Scarf - Vintage
Loafers - Clarks

At first I wasn't too sure on how to style the brooch, so I did a bit of research on Pinterest and decided that I would style it with a white collared shirt. The shirt is from H&M but you can find this type of shirt anywhere. 
To add more of a vintage feel to my outfit, I added my green paisley scarf because I thought the colours of the paisley print worked well with the emerald green stone on the brooch. Plus it adds some colour and detail to the outfit. 

The acid wash denim jacket is from Topshop and I thought that it looked good against the paisley print. It adds a bit of texture and more colour to the outfit. The skirt is also from Topshop and you may recognise it from previous outfit posts. I was going to wear black skinny jeans but I thought the skirt looked better with the shirt tucked in. 

My loafers are from Clarks and they are the comfiest pair of shoes I own! At first they did rub my feet but like any other shoe, I just had to wear them in a bit. I love them! They are perfect for day's when I don't want to wear heels or dress up as much but they still add style to any outfit in my eyes. 

That's all for today's post! Hope you liked it!
Thank you for reading and have a lovely evening!
