Power of remorse

Remorse can be a positive, powerful thing and here's proof. 
After coming across boxes full of unworn pins and brooches I have been incorporating them into my every day wear in every single way I can think of. 
Today, I took a bubble pin set and added some fun to an otherwise all black look. One pin went on the shirt collar (Cool!) and the other two went on my shoes: Hi! and Hello ! were quite a hit in my book.

Recently I came across boxes full of pins in my closet, I got a bit of a remorse and thought I'd bring them to the light of day.
My choice for today was a silver tone metal bird brooch with light green stones set as eyes. While this piece is unmarked and quite simple, it was a gift from my long gone grand father, which makes it super special. 
Now, speaking of the rest of the outfit, I am the first to admit I did not like it.. you'll never be seeing this dress again.

Once upon a denim dress

Seems like I've been o the hunt for the perfect denim dress for months now.  After getting rid of below one at the end of 2016 I've been looking for a dressier version, one that would serve for weekend and work. 

Almost identical version of above denim dress here 

During my search I came across four great denim dress options from Zaful that have been on my mind.  




1. Babydoll with the flared touch and under 40.00 USD
2. Waist wrap  has super light fabric and not even 12.00 USD
3. Deconstructed is modern and has pockets and its under 25.00 USD
4. Classic  of darker denim in a clean silhouette with pockets too, priced under 40.00 USD 

I've been thinking that #4 would work and think that #3 would be fabulous layered over a white button down or worn with a blazer... Which one do you think would work ways: work and office ?

The other day as I looked for a pair of earrings I came across a big two tier jewellery box. It revealed two smaller jewellery boxes. A wooden one with at least half a dozen silver tone pins and brooches, mostly vintage. The other box held a few more gold toned ones. While brooches and pins made a comeback sometime last year its not often that I consider these when putting together an outfit. So today, for a change, I did: placed my red rhinestone butterfly pin on one side right below the turtle neck fold. Are your pins also stashed in a box in the back of the closet ?
