Vintage Pins From My Lovely Aunt :)

I have a bit of a haul - I just had to show you guys these pins, they are goooorge.

You may think that pins are oudated and strange, but personally I love them!  They can give that extra "oomph" to an outfit & make it really unique.  You can dazzle up a blazer with them, cardigans, bags, jackets, scarves, bascially whatever you please!  (Think of it as Bedazzle-ing, but not tacky :)

My aunt gave me three of her pins that she doesn't wear anymore, which is awesome.  Yes, she's "older" (in her 70's, & still young at heart! ♥) and it's so cool getting things from other generations & family members because no one else really has them!

Vintage = ♥

Straight away after I saw this for the first time I thought - LADY GAGA!  The headpiece that the little face is wearing just screams GaGa to me ♥ - this is admittedly my favorite pin that I own.

Really like this one as well - so classy!

This one reminds me of GaGa too, but it also reminds me of The Phantom of the Opera - maybe it's because that's been on my mind a lot lately (if you follow me on Twitter, you'd know!  Goodness, I can't even explain how much I love love love that movie ♥) but after thought, it's logical that it reminds me of that.

If you've seen the movie, during the Masquerade the main colors are black, white, & gold (except the Phantom, of course, he wears red :) & this mask-pin just kinda sums the amazing scene all up for me :).

Hope you all enjoyed this post.  Questions?  Ask 'em!
