leather and red

My outfit post is slightly more dressy today as I went out for a friend's birthday. I was lucky enough to find my playsuit in the 'Last Chance' section of Topshop. It was the only one left and was my size! I love the cute double layer collar and floral print. I teamed it with my leather biker jacket and heeled ankle boots to add edge. :)

trend report: collars

Yellow shift dress, $47
Zara silk top, $80
Shell top, £45
Lace top, $60
Romper jumpsuit, $100
Asos Airtex Leather Shirt Collar, $26
Beaded Collar Green, £18

The rise of the classic collar shows no sign of stopping! Despite having been around for a while now, this is one trend that is set to continue. A collar is such a small but effective detail which can completely change the look of any outfit - I'm a huge fan! Sweet Peter Pan collars instantly add a whimsical 60s vibe, whereas a bold studded collar can add edge to s simple outfit. Detachable collars are great for updating any outfit. has some lovely ones or there are many DIY blogs for the more creative!

patterned jumper/diy collar

Another college outfit. I love this patterned crop jumper! I added a lace collar, which I made myself! I sewed a length of black ribbon to a piece of lace, cut to size. I was quite pleased with how it ended up. The shorts are high waisted and I love the buttons. The colours in this look reflect the seasonal change to autumn!

Jumper - H&M
Shorts - Primark
Collar - DIY

i went to london today for the first time in aaages! we went to camden first and found some great bargains (don't be afraid to haggle! :P) i got a floral satchel for college and a leopard print cardi which will be useful as it's starting to get a lot colder! after camden we went straight to oxford street, and, of course, topshop! i love oxford street, i think it's one of the best places for style inspiration. Urban Outfitters and Topshop are my two favourite shops on the street.
