Review: My New Martinis & Slippers Brooch

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.

The lovely mastermind behind Martinis & Slippers

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.

To purchase this brooch, you can head over here.

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.

Love,

Miss Lark Bahar
