First and Last: Week #37 -- First Brooch/Last Ring

First Brooch: I got these from shoppergurl's stylebook a week or so ago. However, I didn't realize until just now that they were earrings, too! After thinking about it, I decided they could do double duty as earrings *and* brooches.

Last Ring: I think I might have gotten this from Diamondheel's stylebook (or was it caiteeinparis? Can't remember which). Anyway, I got it at least a couple of years ago, and it's been languishing in the back of my closet since then because I could never make it work with anything I had -- until now!

Since these items went relatively well together, making a look with them was fairly easy. I knew I wanted to make a Parisian-chic, Chanel-inspired look (something with a French flair to go with the fleur-de-lis ring) and I think I succeeded. I even added an additional pair of earrings in case I wanted to wear the brooches as brooches, not earrings. This chic, sophisticated look has a classic, timeless feel. It really exudes confidence and power -- not to mention a "ladies who lunch" vibe. Perfect for a high-powered day event!

Hope you like it! :)
