Treasurenest Tuesday #43: The Saddest Accessory Ever Made

I have yet to actually wear this brooch. I think the only event worthy of its awe-inspiring levels of emo is an art opening. You just don't show up for a staff meeting in this baby.

It came from my beloved Past & Present, and it was love at first sight. This piece could have been styled after my college sketchbook. I have an unfinished (I know this without even reaching for the memory- they were ALL unfinished) intaglio print of myself in this exact pose. I adore this thing. It is fantastically, deliciously strange.


  1. Wow! That is quite a tragically beautiful find. That is the kind of piece that doesn't just top off an outfit. That is the kind of piece you build the whole outfit around.

  2. If I had one of those, I would totally wear it at the end of the semester, when grades are due. All the teachers would understand. ;P
