Heidi on Fall Fashion: Fresh Ideas for Wearing Brooches and Pins
Well, summer flew by as usual! Where does the time go? When the nights have me rummaging through my closets for those sweaters I’ve put away I know that fall is just around the corner. I can honestly smell it. You know, girls, I couldn’t be happier, because it means that I’ll be kicking off the season at HSN with the most fabulous jewelry from my new Fall Collection. I was reviewing the pieces that I’ll be showing you this September 9 – 12, and you can clearly see my influences are all about the array of colors that autumn brings us in the Northeast.
I have a great memory of Gail and I attending our first football game at my son’s college at Notre Dame . It was downright cold, and we were freezing! The only thing that kept my mind off of the weather was looking at the array of gorgeous colors splashing the university’s campus in shades of orange, yellow, red and brown. I thought, “Wow! I can’t wait to put these colors on some jewelry to accompany my fall wardrobe.”
Girls, first of all, I don’t buy a lot of clothing. I am neither a clothes horse nor a shoe diva, because let’s face it, my passion is jewelry. When I finally make my purchases as far as wardrobe goes, it is always about quality. It has got to be a garment that I’ll have on my back for 20 years. My cool weather clothing consists of a few classically tailored jackets, hats and of course, I’m a nut for scarves. As a matter of fact, my scarf collection is equally as big as my jewelry collection, so I contradict myself a teensy bit! The best part is
that these articles are all perfect for PINS! And do I have some awesome pins coming your way this month!
I love pins for many reasons. They are not only eye-catching and dress up a lapel or a hat, but they are so useful. They can be used to fasten a scarf at your shoulder, or with a big, big shawl one can wear it around the neck by sticking a fabulous brooch right in the middle to hold it together, while letting the shawl hang long in front of the body. I am also a huge fan of hats, and a swell pin placed “just so” on a beret or a fedora makes such a fashion statement! Bundling up doesn’t have to be bulky and unflattering. If you wear jewelry, your gorgeousness will shine through. So here’s to crisp Autumn days and chilly nights!
