Pearl Collar

I stole this sweater from New Gate’s costume shop simply for the breathtaking collar. The sweater itself fits, but tends to cling too much in some places and bag in others. I’ll have to style it to better “hide the rest” next time.



Sweater, vintage. Skirt, Talbot’s. Tights, Simply Vera. Peeptoes, Wild Diva. Ring, Forever 21. Bag, No Boundaries.



P.S. I wore this to Sin City Antique Gallery after work, where I scored a Moschino Couture skirt for $5. Look for the skirt on the blog next week and check out Sin City’s going out of business sale for your own steals.

Wow, I love the teal shoes with this ensemble! Honestly, I'm not sure I would even have thought to do a teal shoe with a celery green like that, but it really looks amazing, and strangely fall-ish, too. Beautiful choices!

Totally worth it for the collar. Gorgeous.

Wow, that collar is gorgeous! Could you eventually move it to another (better fitting) sweater?

I have that exact same skirt in orange - I got it on consignment and the labels had been cut out, then I saw it in a different size in a thrift shop and saw that it was Talbot's. It is one my favourite skirts - such a great fit, and don't you love the kick-pleats?

that's a great collar. i've seen just necklaces like this that tie with ribbon in the back. on of those might solve the problem of the not-so-great fitting sweater (which i think looks great, btw!)

briana - it's an antique mall on Monmouth, in Newport. It's just up the hill from Falcon and not too far from Footlighters. Ask Dan about it. So awesome!

Wow, that collar is stunning! I wish we had found cool stuff when doing inventory of the school's costume department!

Hey I just noticed your purse - and I have the same style, but in dark brown, pink, and lime green. It's absolutely gorgeous, and I never return home from a day of carrying it without someone complimenting it.

Oh, and I do love the sweater too!
