Clip it in the butt

I came across some dress clips the other day in a vintage store. Now this fascinated me because I had never heard of such a thing. At first I thought they were the great invention that would keep bra straps from free falling. Rather these clips serve a purpose similar to a brooch.

It’s an accessory for your dress. Apparently, these were a huge thing during the jazz era, and poured over into the 1950’s. Ladies would attach them to the collar, neckline, pockets, and occasionally shoes to add a little flair. It’s like bling, but classier 🙂

I think I could get into this and hopefully it will make a comeback like most trends in fashion do.
