Brooch of the Month - June 2013 - The Scarlet Flower
This over-sized flower pin is probably the brooch that gets the most attention when I wear it. It's definitely not the most interesting one I own, but it's the most flamboyant for sure. I'm pretty sure that someone has commented on it every time I've worn it - even when I wore it daily on my coat last winter.
I actually purchased it at Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon, so it was around $2! I love it because it goes with anything (one of my fashion tenets is that bright red and orange-red are neutral and can go with any other color), and it's an easy way to get more color in an outfit since I tend to wear a lot of black (not that there's anything wrong with that!).
You can also see this flower pin in action with another brooch in a previous Brooch of the Month post.
