broaching the brooch

there is a jewess custom to beautify ourselves for the holidays.  while many of us spend weeks to find a new outfit for every meal, totally unnecessary!  sometimes, more is more, but this time, go for less.  there are so many ways to renew your rosh hashana wardrobe. i'm obviously talking about accessories.  they can make or break you so be careful. find something that makes you feel like you and also play on this seasons trend of mixed media.  we've worn the flowery jeweled headbands (totally over but still adorable) and seen the crystal and fabric bib necklaces (kudos if you've worn them), but try something that holds the trend without being too trendy.  you can approach the brooch or jump right in. for those willing to take the risk, check out express's beautifully adorned oversized brooch made of fabric and rhinestones.  the statement is both bold and subtle since the color palette is dark but sparkly.  pair it with a black sweater jacket or long jersey vest. just keep the rest of the look simple and classic and you'll be the apple of someone's eye.
