These Colors Don't Run (They Sparkle)

Vintage American flag brooch by Avon, circa early 80s.

This is your friendly reminder that Adrienne of The Rich Life (on a budget) and I would love for you to join us for July’s “How I Wear My: Red, White and/or Blue” post. You can send me a picture of how you wear your red, white and/or blue, whether patriotic or not. I will be skipping patriotism in favor of sparkle and stripes.

But speaking of patriotism, my grandmother gave me this American flag brooch when I was younger. I’m pretty sure it’s from Avon and I remember loving it as a child so I’m so glad I own it now and I’ve pinned it right in the center of my J. Crew Farmer’s Market tote to personalize my summer bag with something meaningful to me on a couple of levels.

Do show us your colors! Photos must be received by July 2, 2012 5PM PST—Adrienne is in California and I am in New York, but Adrienne is hosting in July so we are going by her time zone!

What a cute little brooch. I have an old flag pin, too. But yours is much more charming.

Already have my outfit for the 3rd! Looking forward to our patriotic post.

Making a mental note of July 2. Hope to have my blogging act back together by then.
