Love how the collar makes the Uniform look so different - 1 small item!


almost looks like you have big shoulder pads in, but then I realized it was just the cut of the collar!

I thought that wool collar was part of the uniform in the first picture, making me think that you were wearing another dress. I absolutely LOVE today's outfit, everything looks so good together, or as individual pieces.

You've hit the nail on the head!

Heather tagged this Genius!

How totally inventive and precious! It's great how the collar transforms your standard black dress into something extra special.

Payal tagged this Home sweet home!

Ah...it's actually quite refreshing to see good ol' white background again! Hope you had a great flight back home. Even though the lamb-wool collar is well...a lamb-wool collar, i love what it does to the uniform! And those tights...hotttt!

Snowy shoulders and mussy hair - either a bad case of dandruff or the plane journey has taken its toll. I don't feel this quite works
