The H&M Metal Collar

So it took me a while but I am there. I now own a metallic collar. And honestly what took me so long?

It's that inexpensive piece that adds that added bit of interest to an otherwise bland shirt.

This collar was from H&M and it cost, at most, about £5. It looks great with regular blouses but also knit tops. If you can locate it in store, and you haven't already got a few in your collection, I suggest you head over to the cashier with it now!







Necklace: H&M (current season)
Blouse: H&M (current season as are the creases!)
Trousers: River Island (last season)
Shoes: Pour La Victoire (old)
Bag: Celine
Sunglasses: Elizabeth and James (Fairfax model)

May I just say how much I ADORE those Elizabeth and James sunglasses? I saw their purchase as a very much unnecessary indulgence and I still berate myself for it but nevertheless my wicked side is so thankful for the spoil. They have a lovely retro shape and I find myself reaching for them all the time.

I should also give a shout out to Breezy blush by MAC. I know - shock - I have strayed from the comfort of Well Dressed :)

It's on the current rotation and adding a pretty warm glow to my cheeks at the moment. It's one of those products that you look at with fear in the pan but the effect is pure pick-me-up and reminds me why I love blush!

PS. Apologies for not posting more recently. I had some horrid news on Saturday but it's important to get back into things and there is comfort in blogging about the superficial so that's why I am here today :)

I hope you are all keeping very well and if you have a collar necklace, how do you wear it?

    1. Hi Chatina - it was in the main jewellery section (which is not very helpful is it!). The packaging it came on was black if that's any help at all so I am guessing Trend?

  49. Hope all is ok! I have been following your blogging and youtube videos for years (how creepy do I feel!) now. I follow many blogs, but yours is the first one I check, every time. Unlike many other bloggers, you are not 17, you never take yourself too seriously, you say it like it is, and your self-deprecating humor keeps me coming back for more! I really enjoy your work. xoxo A Canadian Admirer
