Collar Added

 Dress Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony, Sweater Aritzia, Necklace Forever21 and c/o Stella & Dot, Heels Givenchy (60% off!), Bag Balenciaga 

I have been wanting a detachable collar for a while, but didn't want to 
pay a lot since I wasn't sure if I would wear it much. I quickly jumped
on this one from Forever21 since the price was great...and boy, am I glad I did!
I have always been a big fan of collared tops and blouses, so now I can add one 
to all my dresses, sweaters and shirts that don't have one!
I especially love the look of a T-shirt paired with a collar.
It's a great way to transition a simple tee.
I also really love these collars: one, two, three, four, five

I love Forever21 for trendy pieces like that..I just blogged about some cute nerd glasses I got there and so happy I found them as I wasn't sure I was going to wear them much.
Love the collared necklace and edgy shoes with this look.

This sweater is such a pretty color and looks so good on you! Love the detachable collar. Really adds interest to an otherwise simple top.
