I know by now you are all aware of my Alexa Chung girl crush, which I can’t deny. It’s just that everything she wears, she wears so well and she has all the elements of my perfect wardrobe. So when I am racking my brains for something to wear, I very often think what would Alexa wear? I find this time of year so difficult when it comes to what to wear for the party season, as I am a tomboy at heart and the racks of glitter and sequins staring me in the face in all the stores, just leave me cold. Well my best friend this year, is going to be the collar! I have been collecting collars all year in chiffon, lace and sequins (ok a little glitter never did anyone any harm at Christmas!) from car boot sales and antique fairs and with the LBD i’ve just bought, I can get so much mileage out of it by just changing the collar, genius. I told you, what would we do without the Chung?
The whole box for £4.00. You know what they say,the early bird catches the worm. It was worth the 7.00am rummage to find these.
This deco collar was found at Newark antique fair. It’s a great day out and well worth getting there on traders day to find the best of the best. This was £10.00 which is much cheaper than the high street copies around.
All I need now is a trip to John lewis for some ribbons and buttons to complete the collars and that should keep me going until the new year!
