If you’re not following @curvecreation already, I highly recommend you do so! Sydney-based pin-up gal Missi not only shares her gorgeous style and body positivity vibes on the regular, but she also gives insight to being boss babe of Daisy Jean Designs. After starting her business by creating hair flowers and other hair accessories, she’s now added hand-made acrylic brooches to her list of expertise! I have been lucky enough to try a few new DJD pieces – see how I’ve styled them below!
Even after giving up on ballet when I was little, I still think of it as something so romantic – it must be all that tulle and ribbon! I can easily indulge my ballet dreams without the all hard work with the Brittany Ballerina brooch. Brittany wears a marbled with tutu with gold glitter (it sparkles!), as well as the classic soft pink tights and pointe shoes. Her expression is serene and her hair and makeup immaculate – so dreamy! There’s also more ballet-themed designs to choose from if you’re a fan.
Harry the Helmeted Honey Eater
How sweet is little Harry? Naturally, being based in Australia means that Daisy Jean honours their native wildlife with an ongoing Australian range that Harry is part of. This guy has a bold yellow tummy which contrasts with his glittery black feathers. The branch he’s perched on with purple flowers is such a good contrast to the yellow, making for a really eye-catching piece!
Unlock Your Heart
Heart brooches are such classics, so sweet and easy to wear! The Unlock Your Heart brooch doesn’t just have to be saved for Valentine’s Day, as it’s the perfect all-year-round piece. The glittery gold key stands out against the rich red heart made from marbled resin. This piece won’t be restocked, so if you’ve been eyeing it make sure you order soon!
Barrow of Love
The Barrow of Love brooch is another subtle nod to V-day, but colour palette makes it great to pair with your spring outfits! Lots of pink hearts are crammed in the cutest sunshine yellow wheelbarrow, rendered in matte acrylic. This piece is based off a vintage design, so it would also make a great gift for any vintage or pin-up lover in your life! It’s another piece where stocks are limited, so if you love it be quick!
A huge thank you to gorgeous Missi of Daisy Jean Designs for letting me style these beautiful brooches! Make sure to check out more Daisy Jean goodness by following them on Facebook and Instagram. And thank you as always to @cmjsnz for taking my picture!
