With historical dramas more popular than ever in movies, television and online, pins and brooches have made a fashion comeback. 

If you follow these types of shows, you've probably noticed stunning pins and brooches, particularly those set in the early and mid 1900s. From The Crown (a British drama about the reign of Queen Elizabeth) to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (which focuses on a Jewish housewife in NYC in the 1950s and her unusual gift for comedy), brooches and pins are prominently displayed and given beautiful historical context by the show’s producers.

This ritual began over 20 years ago when we launched our Dressing Well snail mail newsletter. (Yup, there was no internet back then and we were primarily working only with women!) It was instantly popular and is now the most frequently visited section of our website.

 

My years as a former accessory buyer for Talbots came home to roost recently when I was working with a new Dressing Well client.

My client confessed she had only two accessories in her wardrobe that she felt comfortable wearing–a pearl necklace and matching pearl earrings that had been given to her on her wedding day.
