Fall 2011

      I've fallen in love with these beautiful collars from Eleven Objects

I have always had a thing for pretty collars, especially those of the Peter Pan kind & in one of my many business ventures that I have thought of in my head (yet never seem to act upon), well clip on collars was one of them. So you can imagine how excited I was when I came across this website with a collection full of  beautiful collars made from delicious fabrics such as silk faille, lace and my favourite, calf hair. They are the perfect accessory to breathe new life into an old top or dress that you've fallen out of love with don't ya think!. 
Eleven Objects was started when two designer friends, Linh Thi Do and Christine Rhee, simultaneously decided that their wardrobes would be vastly improved by a different kind of accessory - you guessed it: Collars. Check out the 'Wear it' section on their website for inspiration on how to style yours. I'll take one in the tan ponyhair with rose gold studs please!

Blau von T from Blaubushka and The Hostess Handbook here. Blaubushka; an edgy scrapblog of fashion, style and beauty. The Hostess Handbook; a parlour of delicate beauty, a lounge of wit and the obscure, a kitchen of the kitsch and all things tempting.

Enter into the world of the wanton and the floral; a haven for ditsy prints, acid petals, digital darlings. These are a bunch of ladies of polished prettiness and easy charm. Theirs is a look of seductive understatement giving a ladylike silhouette and a vision of unguarded perfection as layers of floral fabric adorn their porcelain bodies. They favour vintage-inspired dresses and offset them with satchels, ankle boots, cable knit socks.....and the boy next door.
