I've never been big on brooches of any kind until recently. I actually hated them until a few Christmases ago when my sister gifted me a Chanel brooch. From that moment on I warmed up to them and now they're one piece of jewelry i like browsing for on the internet.
The moment I saw this Sweet Candy brooch from FW/14, I HAD to have it! I have a HUGE sweet tooth and candy necklaces & bracelets were favorites growing up. Sadly, I discovered really quickly that this brooch was going to be very difficult to find and became my elusive unicorn this year. I missed out TWICE on nabbing one and even had a few personal shoppers looking to no avail. I scoured the internet for MONTHS daily and even got so desperate that I called Chanel customer service in the hopes a boutique might have one collecting dust in a storage room somewhere, haha. But FINALLY one popped up two weeks ago and I jumped on it despite it not being the best time so close to Christmas.
I'm so happy I can't stop smiling!
