Hello, Accessory Enthusiasts!
If you read our blog regularly, you see Luxulite brooches ALL OVER THE PLACE. (in June's bridesmaid gifts, in June's outfit roundups and even on Amelia's wedding dress). They are made by a creative little lady named Katy who lives in the UK. We are going to include mainly photos and use this post largely to showcase her work as opposed to reviewing them, because they are amazing. Specifically the two one the ends (the peaches and the mixed fruit) are from her new collection and we were SO excited to receive these.
I picked this dress up from The Hip Zipper in Nashville the day I was taking blog photos and fell in love. I realized after taking photos that this brooch almost becomes camouflaged within the pattern of the dress, but I really love how it adds a little something extra if you're paying attention.
This Bernie Dexter dress (post about Bernie Dexter here) has always been one of my favorite dresses, because of all the colors in it. Since it's so colorful, I can pick and choose how to accessorize it. When I saw this brooch, I knew I had to have it so I could match it to this dress. This is an example of how you can match the brooch color with the dress for an added pop and emphasis of color. Yellow is my favorite color so the added yellow is definitely a huge plus for me! This will probably be my go-to brooch for when I wear this dress.
Before we let y'all go, we wanted to mention not to get discouraged if you don't QUITE see something you love in the Luxulite shop or you see something you love and someone else gets to it before you do. Katy is so incredibly accommodating about custom orders and doesn't charge much (if anything) extra to make sure you get something you love made just for you. Katy at Luxulite mixed special resin colors, added special "sparkles" and even let June pick the bead and wire colors for her bridesmaid brooches
Here's a sampling of some of her other recent creations:
