While I love me some Disney brooches and other fandom brooches, sometimes I like to bring a little 60s kitsch into my accessorizing. One of the best shops to get this sort of look is Martinis & Slippers, a sweet gal named Alex who runs a wonderful blog of her own.
Prior to my foray into the give-away world, I hadn’t known of her shop OR her blog, so I was pretty excited when she offered to send some stuff for the give-away. I always love finding new blogs and shops to swoon over. Perusing her shop showed that she had a wonderfully cohesive selection of goodies that would perfectly fit the bill for someone looking to hearken back to mid-century kitsch and novelty. The items you’ll find in her shop range from classic drink brooches to toy television brooches to bead necklaces to lime slice earrings – anything a retro-loving guy or doll could desire.
When she offered me a choice of a brooch for myself as well as the one for my give-away, I had trouble choosing between the two television brooches available, as both were incredibly adorable but gave off very different vibes.
She offered to send them both to me and said I could throw the extra in for the give-away. So sweet of her! I ended up opting for the first as it reminded me so much of what one sees in 50s and 60s television shows, and the static-y area is just so sparkly and pretty!
I love that this television brooch acts as a neutral while serving that novelty feel I find a necessity in my wardrobe. It goes wonderfully with so many outfits! But today’s look is probably my favorite to pair it with.

Made from a sturdy, hand-cut bamboo sealed with resin, I can tell that this retro TV brooch will be able to handle regular wear, and I love the sheen and feel the resin provides!

I hope to add a few of her drink brooches to my collection as well as the citrus earrings she’s added to her shop! They’re all just so cute, and perfect for summer-time and any other celebratory holiday. Her items average at about $20-25 and shipping clocks in at $7.40, a decent price for international shipping, and you know you’re getting quality when you order some of her accessories, so the cost is more than worth it.
