Chanel Pins: Embellish Now
I was getting dressed for a really fun event at Neiman Marcus last week…. and upon looking in the mirror, I noticed that I looked like I was going to a funeral. Somber and just not fun. So I reached into my CHANEL pin collection that I started a few years back, and grabbed the bling-i-est I could find. Upon re-checking…. Success! The outfit now had that Ooomph factor that it needed. Ooomph enough to get me several compliments on my outfit and pins. One pin alone garnered 6 compliments and actually helped me meet some amazing new friends. Now I am not saying dash out to CHANEL and buy pins…. but what I am saying is any outfit can be changed up with some simple accessories. Pins are an incredibly easy way to brighten up any outfit and really think outside the box with placement.
Where did you get that large crest shaped pin? I love it! Where can I get it?
The crest shaped pin was a runway piece that my husband picked up in Hong Kong. That’s actually the one that was the show stopper at the event. My husband has actually bought me most of my collection… he has an amazing eye. I can ask around to see if there are anymore available.
As always, thank you for visiting Shelley…. I AM SO BEYOND honored you took the time to stop by!!
All my Love,
The devil is in the accessories ?????Love Chanel pins, You look Amazing!!!
Picture perfect….absolutely Gorgeous!!! Thank you for making accessorizing seem so simple!
I have always loved this Chanel pin.
You can make any outfit look like it is worth thousands when you wear a real Chanel pin like this.
You are right, this completely changes the whole look. So much fun and personality.
I absolutely love this figure-flattering dress and then adding the pins are just brilliant.
I am a horse racing fan and have all kinds of cool really rare Jockey pins and every time I wear them, I get a ton of compliments. Also, I find that I meet new people that are also fans when they look at my pins!
I am so glad you shared where you got the crest pin. I am coveting this pin! I will have to look for something similar!
To be honest, I have never thought of pins as an accessory but they look marvelous.
What is the difference between a brooch and a pin?
It’s funny, every time I think of pins, I think of TGIFridays restaurant and their “Flair”. Pins are a great way to show your style and things you like.
I am the biggest fan of initialed jewelry and I just love your initialed brooch.
You are as glam as glam gets. Great look.
Chanel is such a timeless classic brand. Definitely my favorite.
I remember my Grandma had a pin collection and when I was young I used to steal and wear all her pins. She secretly knew I wore them and gifted them to me in her will. Love pins.
I am loving your long sexy hair. You look amazing.
This is such a lost accessory! Pins are so great for showing your style in a different way.
Pins are so much fun. I collect fabulous pins and find it can be a really amazing accessory.
I saw this pin on one of your blogs awhile back and I loved it then as much as I do now.
Why haven’t I ever thought of this?
You have great taste. I didn’t even know Chanel made such beautiful pins.
Chanel is one of my favorites!
I was looking on eBay and scored an REAL Chanel pin. A serious once in a lifetime deal!
Loveeee Your Chanel collection
People used to refer to pins as something their grandma wore to church but they are back in demand! I have a friend in the jewlery industry & he says they go like hot cakes!
This is such a great way to completely change the look of any average outfit.
Oh my God, this look is so cute. I like the pins, I like the dress and I like the cuff bracelet.
I am just in luck, one of my gal friends has a few Chanel pins so I will have to borrow them from her!
I love to accessorize. It really adds to an outfit!
I don’t have any Channel pins, but I do have some really cool ones that I wear from time to time.
I love my bling! It makes a huge difference in any outfit.
I like the Chanel pin in the middle because it looks like a belt sort of.
You look fabulous, my friend! You seem happy with what you are doing.
These are awesome! I love pins!
The dress looks so good on you & the pins bring it even higher on the fab/sophistication level. Wonderful idea!
H.O.T.!! When I think of these types of pins, I used to think of my mom and her generation. But not anymore! You look smokin’! This totally adds to your beautiful dress! Thanks for changing my mind!
This is lovely! It really makes the dress bling! And I love all the accessories! Looking great!
I’m going to start collecting pins. This is a great way to spruce up an outfit!
My favorite Auntie had a really beautiful collection of pins. This was a staple gift we would give to her on holidays and her birthday. She wore them all the time. When she passed on, she left them to my sister and me. I still have them and wear them proudly. I think of her and know that she is with me ever time I put one on!
I’m looking them up ASAP! I have an event in Dec. & am going to wear some pins! Thx!
You look beautiful!
How do you look so great in everything? Haha
The black dress is sooo nice. I like that it is long but still very sexy & chic!
You are in such great shape & love the hair! Pins are in!
What an awesome collection you have! Perfect placements on the dress. You have the coolest style, Laura!
