This year, Erstwilder surprised me with not just one, but two Christmas brooch launches!
The first, and biggest, collection highlights an Australian Christmas. There are familiar pieces, like the wreath I bought, and some that those of us in the Northern Hemisphere might consider a little more unusual, like koalas (my youngest purchased on of those).
I wasn’t even planning on getting two brooches from that collection, but Ryan went ahead and ordered the Volkswagen Kombi “Seasonal Delivery” piece that I couldn’t quite decide on so I wouldn’t miss out. And then Erstwilder announced a small, four-piece collection of Christmas Hello Kitty brooches to round out the three-part Hello Kitty collaboration they did this year. I tried to resist…really I did. But I had a coupon for one of their US stockists, so I added one more piece to my Christmas brooch collection.
I’m looking forward to wearing all of my Christmas brooches this season!
I love a themed outfit. Coming up with an outfit that goes with the Olympics, however, is a bit of a challenge. Until I realized that Hello Kitty is the perfect sartorial representation of Tokyo 2020!
The Hello Kitty collection from Unique Vintage isn’t really new anymore, and I missed out on the first run of this Golightly dress, my favorite style from Unique Vintage. When they replenished their stock, I was determined not to miss out on it again, especially once I realized that it did fit the Tokyo 2020 theme!
I accessorized with a Splendette stack of duchess bangles, a Meteor Jewelry necklace, a blue hair flower from Pinup Girl Clothing, and a Hello Kitty brooch from Erstwilder, of course!
Even though the dress is primarily pink, I also went with a Team USA theme of red, white and blue in the outfit:
I love finding creative ways to make my outfits fit a theme!
