A brooch treat today! We haven't seen the Carrington Sapphire Feather Brooch in action since 2014.

Worth the wait, though, don't you agree? This is an exquisite piece. Looking extra purple-y today, even on a strong blue background.

This outfit was worn for last year's Royal Maundy service without any brooch. It looks like The Queen has reduced the size of the fur collar between appearances - good news for us, since she made room for a brooch. (But I still think we could do something about the fur edge on the hat while we're in minimizing mode.)
