With gauzy wings and gleaming bodies...

“Clouds of insects danced and buzzed in the golden autumn light, and the air was full of the piping of the song-birds. Long, glinting dragonflies shot across the path, or hung tremulous with gauzy wings and gleaming bodies.” - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

There's something so quintessentially summer-y about dragonflies...just the sight of one makes you feel like you're skipping through a meadow...like a girl in a 70's shampoo commercial...a field full of them and you get positively light-hearted.

Which must explain why I'm coveting this dragonfly brooch from Miu Miu...well, that and the stylized, 1930's-esque design...

    It's a beautiful brooch, and that was a very evocative piece of verse. Thank you for sharing it. I really need to read some Doyle.

    I like dragonflies in jewelry but not in real life. They always seem to fly too close to my hair. Ew.

    There's no doubt, the dude is absolutely right.
