Recently Lexi of Yankee Sweetheart contacted me asking if I would be interested in reviewing one of her brooches from her jewelry collection. Lexi is a woman with a passion for retro and vintage fashion, and it is visible through both her adorable salon in Victoria, Australia, where she specializes in vintage hair and make-up and in her darling jewelry collection. I selected her “Topping the Charts” radio brooch in mint and pink and wore it out to lunch the other day while running a few errands.
When my brooch arrived, I instantly noticed how adorable and well packaged it was. Inside a bubble envelope was this super cute box that slid to reveal the brooch.
Measuring at two inches long, the brooch is made of smooth, lightweight, but hardy (seriously, there is hardly any give to the antenna portion) acrylic, and the front image is printed right on the acrylic. The backing is applied with a super smooth glue that is invisible, and the brooch is secured with the locking style back.
The design of the radio is fun, and looks almost like it was hand-painted, which I love. Also the little radio feels so animated to me, like I could imagine it bouncing along to my music while we were driving today.
The little radio comes in either a mint body with pink accents, or a pink body with mint accents. She also has a darling flamingo brooch, as well as a flamingo necklace with little palm tree charms. But here’s the awesome part, if you feel like you need to get one of your very own, Lexi is offering a 25% off coupon code for readers, through the end of the year that is! Just use “ATOMIC” to receive the 25% discount!! So check them out now!
Thanks again, Lexi for this opportunity! I hope to see more designs from you in the future!
