Michelle Obama loves Corsage Brooches

Our First Lady seems to have a fondness for brooches. This past week, she welcomed a large group of guests in the Diplomatic Room at the White House. The group was preparing to meet with students from the Washington, DC area as part of the Women's History month activities.

She looked elegant in a Zero + Maria Cornejo jacket which she wore over slim black pants and a huge black floral brooch. She also wore this brooch on the campaign trail, but then she paired it with another white floral brooch. What a unique idea!

I've seen smaller pins grouped together on a lapel for an interesting look, but haven't seen anyone pair up to fairly large brooches together before. It goes well with the new trend of statement jewelry which is so popular right now. She could also be starting a new trend of "corsage jewelry." The symbolism of the black and white flower combination is apt.

If you like Michelle's look, you may find a couple of pins that you could team up on the flower brooches page of my Vintage Jewelry Lane website. I have them in all styles and colors to suit all tastes.
