THE BLACK PEARL: Topshop dress & collar. Mandy Coon bunny bag & vintage jewelry throughout.
Removable collars are coming up roses... I remember reading about the dickeys & paper collars Francie's father wore in Betty Smith's A Tree Grows in Brooklyn & wondering why they weren't popular now. A crisp collar strewn with flowers is the ideal finishing touch on a frock seeded with pearls, all courtesy of Topshop.
PEARL NECKLACE: Red Valentino dress (last worn HERE). Vintage collar. Karen Walker sunglasses.
Detachable collars range from the disposable to special gems, like this pearly 1920s treasure, troved at a tag sale in CT last weekend. Each various sized bead is handsewn to the silk lining & it fastens with an eyehook. It's the crowning glory on a coral double bow dress & sunglasses with arrows along the arms - walk this way.
