velvet + collar = wow.



jumper and dress - topshop, velvet collar and boots - asos

isn't this black velvet collar the cutest thing? as soon as i saw it online i knew it would make so many of my dresses and outfits so much better! why buy a host of expensive peter pan collar dresses (which yes, i'm completely obsessed with) when i could just buy a collar and attach it to my existing dresses? it does have the issue of getting completely twisted around though, hense the slightly wonky look of it in these photos.

also, the obsession with these boots and chunky jumpers isn't close to ending it seems.. though at least there's no polka dots here!

  1. i don't think i can get enough of velvet at the moment! i'm seriously considering buying anything i can find in velvet and now i'm adding a peter pan collar to my list!
    i kid, but your outfit does look SO cute (as do you!) and the contrast between the velvet and the leather is very nice - definitely remembering that combo when i'm struggling for outfit ideas in the upcoming months :)

  26. so so perfect! loooove that collar. and your boots, what size shoe are you? i want to steal them!

  27. I don't know...I'm usually a fan of your outfits, but the skirt fits neither the sweater nor the collar. black shorts or a high waisted skinny jeans would have been better. or maybe some tapered trousers.
