Christian Dior Logo Brooch

I bought this brooch this weekend, and while I normally think brooches are dated looking and old fashioned, I'm quite excited about this one. Not because it is Dior alone, but also because it looks modern. Most women who wear brooches today do so because they want it to look vintage. They want to evoke a past the way women who wear hats do- it is costume. This brooch has the potential to look modern due to the graphic nature of the logo itself, and the rope texture the logo is spelled out in. I would suggest wearing it on a scarf with a layered look, or it could look too self-conscious.
