HtCC: Spaaaaaarkle SPARKLE

As soon as December comes around (well, more like by my birthday in September) I’m drawn towards glittery, sparkly, sequin encrusted items. No party outfit is complete without at least a little sparkle. Here are a few of my picks…

sequin dresses

Silver skater dress from Topshop * Blue maxi dress from Topshop * Gold party dress from Modcloth * Gabby sequin dress from Motel * ASOS sequin dress * Ozlem dress from French Connection * Gold tunic from F&F *

HtCC: Collared

I love detachable collars. They can change the look of an outfit easily and are quite cheap (compared to buying a new outfit, anyway!). Heres a few I’ve spotted that I think I could wear.

This “antique embellished collar” from Topshop* (£32) was part of their online exclusives, but unfortunately its currently sold out.

I love this Gemma Lister Peter Pan collar* – unlike most of the other collars here, this looks like its more solid so wouldn’t lose its shape. Its also only £31.50 on ASOS* at the moment.

From Urban Outfitters, this crochet collar necklace* (£28) is much softer looking.

If you prefer something a bit more unique, this collar from Loulou Loves You (£45) is gorgeous, and handmade (so you’re unlikely to see someone else seeing the same thing)

Etsy always has so much choice, but my favourite was this studded Peter Pan collar from Girl Can’t Talk (£35) – so different to the other collars above!

If none of these take your fancy, then you can always have a go at doing it yourself – Lucy posted a tutorial about how she decorated some cotton collars or if you can crochet (unlike me!), theres a cute collar pattern here.
