    I would style my collar with some shirts or blouses :)

  2. Thank you for the giveaway! I would wear the gold collar with my black bodycon dress with sheer overlay to pizzazz up the neutral black and toughen up the femininity of the delicate tulle.

    I think I would style it with some sleevless top, black skirt and heels.. and maybe there would fit some flowered leggins or tights :)

    I would wear the gold collar for my Auntie's Wedding in June for which the theme is gold! I'm wearing a lovely green dress from Zara and so want to wear gold accessories!^^

    I think collars look the best with high-necked shirts. . . how about with a minty chiffon button down and a peach body con? The contrast of the collar and the lighter pastels would be adorable. Even chicer -- I'd wear the collar with already collared shirts for a double-collar effect. :)

    I love collars! I would wear it with the sweetest top or dress with great details and patterns, most likely one I wish it actually has a collar to begin with! Then, I would throw a cardigan or a light blazer on top with the collar sticking out! Oh, and I would definitely put my hair up in a giant donut bun so it's not covering the amazing collar! <3

  7. All those collars are really cute! I could wear a collar with anything. It would make a regular t-shirt/jeans look seem much, much more interesting, and it would add personality to a dress. Right now, I'm fantasizing about wearing it with a high-necked button down tank and a fluffy biege tulle skirt.

    - Thanks!

  8. This is a really great giveaway! I'm at the south hemisphere so i'm thinking on autumn. It would look great whit a black velvet body, a long assymetric skirt also in black, a pair of high heeled chelsea boots and golden accesories. That way the collar would be the center of the outfit.

  9. First of all, I love how you will base the winner on how we'd style it! Hopefully you'd like how I'd style it :) A lovely gold collar would look amazing with a little black dress preferably laced and a burgundy pullover. It would be paired with some light coloured heels maybe nude OR just some really casual slip ons.

    A really casual outfit would be a flower printed/lace and flowy top/ button up with dark high waisted jeans. There are many ways to style a gold collar with more textured tops and a plain bottom.

    I've followed and registered a while back :)

  10. Oooh the gold collar actually has a slight futuristic edgy look to it so I'd pair it with a cream vintage embroidered top I have - it'd be a nice back to the future kind of look if that makes sense :) I'd finish the look with a nice sweeping black maxi skirt, a pair of high heels I have that look like a golden version of Dorothy's shoes from the Wizard of Oz and then some gold bangles to tie it all together :)

  11. I would wear the collar with a loose oversized chiffon coral top, paired with a high-waisted cream tribal/aztec pencil skirt, and brown strappy wedges. :) Great outfit for the spring and summer!


  12. I would style it with a crochet cropped top and floral maxi skirt then top it off with a floppy hat and a pair of wedges.


  13. Might be 'boring,' but I'd use the collar to jazz up my collection of tshirt dresses that I live in all summer.

  14. I'd like to wear the collar with a white lace top :)


  15. Debora Ferri

    I'd style the gold collar with a silk blouse of all colors because the collar is perfect to combine with many clothing. It complete the style of the person who wear it, I think that it is became a "must" for the people that love fashion! I would wear it to renovate my style!

  16. I think I'd wear this collar with lots and lots of outfits. But any simple dress or top (simple in the sense that it doesn't already have a collar) could benefit from the addition of a cute collar necklace. I'm just crazy about collars.

    I've been so obsessed with detachable collars ever since I started seeing them become popular online, but can't find them anywhere in Wisconsin (go figure). I would love to edge up a vintage black dress I have that has a crocheted overlay on top and tulle skirt, with pearl bracelets, and some suede, magenta platform peeptoe wedges I've been lusting after as well. Otherwise, for a softer look, I'd pair the gold collar with a coral pleated dress I just bought yesterday, a chiffon flowered jacket, and neutral platform wedges. Ahhh, want that collar, they are so different <3

  18. Maike B

    I would probably style the collar with my lace dress (which I can't stop wearing, hahah) or a simple little black dress in which the collar probably will really stand out (and it should). xx

  19. Laura Dittrich

    As blouses are very in this season, I am collecting them and there is nothing more perfect than to pair them up with a golden collar standing out from a beautiful pastel coloured blazer. That's how I would wear them and with rolled boyfriend jeans or pastel or tye dye skinnies, and with ankle strap sandals or ankle strap wedges.

    Thank you for this great giveaway :)

  20. That is such a tricky question, golden goes with everything! (or at least in my head, shut up). Though when it comes to detachable collars, I like either trying to blend it in, as if it actually /was/ part of the shirt or blouse (I have a deep blue crocheted top with a high collar that would match perfectly!) or making it an statement (for instance, a white sleeveless blouse with quite some cleavage, tossing a denim shirt to the mix). In other words, either very feminine (I've seen the retro look mentioned and I must agree!) or something more androgynous, even a tad rocky (oversized blazer? Oh, the possibilities). I could go on an on forever, so I'll leave it at that;)

    Thank you for this <3

  21. Yay! I love giveaways! The first thing that popped into my head when I saw these collars was a white dress. I think I got the idea from the last photo; it's so cute. So that would definitely be the foundation and then I'd probably layer over a sheer pastel-colored blouse. I'd finish the look off with a light shade of lipstick and some rad lace up boots (I love lace up boots of any kind). Very simple. :) Maybe throw on a muted-color cardigan if it gets chilly.

    I think I'm a lot better expressing ideas visually so I created this Polyvore set to better illustrate the concept. I hope you love it as much as I do. I think it would make any girl look like a modern spring princess. <3

  22. I would style my gold collar with a lace fringe champagne-colored kimono top (so that the specks of gold would be reflected in the collar!), a pastel floral tank top, black denim skinnies with a sheen, and brown steve madden platforms!

    For an edgier look, I would style it with a plain white-tee, studded high-waisted shorts, a bright red blazer, and black lace-up boots.

    Thanks a ton <3

  23. I would style my gold collar with some black leggins and some shirt in a rock style! :)


  24. Thank you for this giveaway!
    Collars are so cute! I would absolutely love to be able to win one (and a gold one at that!)

    Since I feel like collars look best with tops that have higher necklines, I think the gold collar would look pretty interesting with this vintage yellow top I have. I've been thinking of colorblocking my bright yellow shirt with a pair of bright green shorts I recently found in my closet and I think the gold collar would be the perfect piece to tie everything together. That outfit would be perfect for summer.
    Another outfit I think would be fun would be something with a gray pullover I own. I would take a leaf from your book and layer the pullover with other pieces (chambray shirt and navy blazer maybe?) to create a neutral look perfect for bundling up in when it gets chilly. The gold collar would add a cute bright touch to everything and cheer me up on rainy days :)

    Oh and I've thought of a bunch more outfits but I wouldn't want to bore you to tears with my ongoing talking (or typing I guess).....

    Best of luck to everyone who enters this giveaway!

    Detachable collars really are going viral! Because I have so many button ups that already have a collar, I think the best way to wear this particular collar would to be with a top with a normal crew neckline. I have so many sleeveless blouses that have a crew neckline! I think considering the weather has been a bit dreary over in Southern California, I would most likely pair it with my sweaters. My sweaters are a bit dark in color so the contrast would definitely make the collar pop!

    Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    I'd style this collar with a collar-less cream utility blouse I got from a vintage warehouse, high waist denim shorts, and brown pixie boots from the same vintage warehouse.

    i would wear a gold collar with some black combination, maybe some black asymmetrical sheer dress.

  29. Followed your lovely blog! Email: flufftheclouds@gmail.com

    For an everyday look, I'd pair the color with a high-neck simple cropped black cable knit sweater so that the collar adds a small yet noticeable "pop". I'd wear a minty green chiffon skirt and gold or nude flats to reflect the gold of the color and to tie look neatly together :)

    For the spring and summer, I would wear the gold collar with a t-shirt with a high neckline or a sleeveless chiffon blouse to add a bit of edginess. I can also wear the collar with a white tank tucked into a chiffon high-low skirt.
    For autumun and winter, I would pair the collar with a knit crew neck sweater and a pair of jeans.

  34. Sherriine

    I would love to pair this collar with my collared tops for a dual collar effect! (:
