Taking a tip from Leandra at The Man Repeller --in the rush of getting ready yesterday (hey, it's been a busy week) I decided to double up on the unsexiest of elements, that is, the collar(s).
I've always been fond of distinctive neck encircle-rs, as evidenced as far back as here. This one is a 60's dress remnant, ordered from eBay, and worn backwards so that it's no longer a round mock neck, but a notched shirt collar instead.
It's actually quite detailed. At the base are silvery, long tubular beads (as in tubes, not an 80's form of awesome), covered by a thick layer of crochet lace, and then topped off by alternating rows of rhinestone and pearls. Stunning magnificence!
Laugh with me as I fall off my bed.
Allow me to show you what I'm working with.
Timex wristband and Gucci snake skin bangle. Thrifted!
