Viva La Lux!

I received these two most adorable brooches a week ago from a vintage inspired jewellery business called Viva La Lux. As well as twitter and instagram (as in the above photo) you can find Viva La Lux on facebook
and on Etsy 
There are so many goodies to choose from including brooches, earrings and necklaces.
The store owner's name is Bonnie and all her 1940's/50's reproduction Lucite and Bakelite (Fakelite) style jewellery are homemade.  Viva La Lux is based in the UK and I highly recommend on buying yourself something really unique, well designed and constructed to accessorize your outfit perfectly!
The first gorgeous brooch I'm reviewing is called Be Mine brooch in confetti pink. This brooch is hand made, is 3 by 3 inches, has round and hearts beads, has a bright red confetti base and has a bar clasp that locks closed. Materials used includes lucite, plastic, wire, metal and ceramic.
As soon as I saw this brooch I just had to do a blog review on it, as I do adore the colour pink, also the confetti and heart beads.  I knew this brooch would go wonderfully with a lot of my outfits.
The second brooch is the Atomic poodle confetti flaked boomerang (no longer listed on Etsy) this the most adorable poodle on a pink confetti boomerang base. This brooch also has a bar clasp that locks, and materials used are plastic, Lucite, metal, wire and ceramic.
I just adore the poodle on the boomerang base, very delightful and so well designed and constructed. Again this brooch is going to go so well with a lot of my outfits.

In these photos I'm wearing the Evelyn dress in Mary Blair umbrellas print from Pinup Girl Clothing
Other accessories include:
White pee-toe shoes are from Target Australia
Blue scarf from Laurina Jean Retro 
Blue straw sun hat from Target Australia
Retro style sunglasses from Colette by Colette Hayman

Until next time!

  1. Fabulously cute choices! I've been eyeing (and Etsy faving :)) Viva La Lux's offerings for quite a while now. It's really cool to some of them featured in a blog review and to get an even better sense of their scale and workmanship. Thank you for this great review, sweet lady (I'm all the more excited to place an order with her shop when my budget will allow).

    Big hugs,
    ♥ Jessica

    *PS* Gorgeous outfit!

  2. I have so many brooches from this company favorited on Etsy but I have yet to make a purchase! You're inspiring me to do so! Great photos too! Also, I'll have my post for you within the next 24 hours ;) XO

  3. I have had my eyes on these brooches too, they look fabulous! This outfit is pastel perfection x

  4. Adorable brooches! I really love the poodle one! Love the way you styled them and also love seeing your hair styled this way!

  5. SUCH a pretty dress! The umbrella print is lovely, and I love the background coraly/salmon color, as well. The poodle brooch is so cute paired with the dress!
