Embellished Collars...

Look book photos from Regal Rose -- Collar 1: River Island -- Collar 2: Miss Selfridge
Wowzers I've been a bad blogger recently...it's been over a week since my last post, so I apologise to all of you who have been reading regularly. Although I do have an excuse: I won't go into too much detail on this post but I have 2 chronic illnesses, neither of which appear to have a known cause, treatment or cure - so I spent 5 days last week being ill! Ah well, enough with feeling sorry for myself, I should probably make a start on the topic of this post! :)

  Embellished collars - the trend has been around for a while now, but I've only just started to catch on and think of ways of incorporating one into my wardrobe - I love the idea of embellishing shirt collars with pearls, beads or crystals; images on tumblr can provide so much inspiration for this, but it's the necklace versions I can't quite decide on...

  I have to say, I'm a fan of anything with sparkles or embellishments, so I like the idea of the necklaces above. I'm in love with the Regal Rose collars in these photos, on their own they didn't seem like much, but with these outfits I think that they really add an edge; they're such simple accessories but they make a bold statement and an interesting change to a regular necklace.

  The fabric collars from River Island and Miss Selfridge I'm not so sure on, I love them on other people and they're really cute, but they might be a bit too twee for my style...however I now keep picturing them with a little jumper and sun-ray pleated skirt, ooo and 'over the knee sock' tights with the little hearts above...aww I wanna wear that now...

What're your opinions on embellished collars - edgy and cute versions alike? I'd love to hear your opinions :)

Love Ellen xx
