I stumbled upon Blair’s blog last year, and my first impression was that she must spend a massive amount of money on her wardrobe. After a while I noticed many of her clothes are actually from Zara, Asos and Topshop and many of the most expensive looking outfits were in fact some of the most affordable ones.
One of her little tricks is a Chanel brooch. It’s only a small little detail, but it transforms the whole outfit and subconsciously we perceive her whole outfit as much more expensive looking than it might have done had she not worn it.
Ebay have hundreds if not thousands of Chanel brooches for sale, but be wary of fake copies!! Your best bet to find an authentic one is probably at the online retailers that offers a range of vintage items like at Shopbop, Asos, and My-Wardrobe. You may also find one at a trusted online vintage shop like Vintage Heirloom or Vestiaire Collective.
A brooch like this is definitely on my “got to have – list”, how about you? xx
