Collar Tips

I bought this shirt a few weeks ago (minus the collar tips) from a charity shop and straight away ordered these collar tips off eBay to put on it!
They were so easy to attach, I just got the tip put it where I wanted then got some pliers and gently clamped either side of the tip and that was it.

I love how they can give a bit of an edge to a plain sheer shirt!

Bowes Museum
A couple of weeks ago I got the chance to go to the Bowes Museum in Durham with my university.
The building itself was beautiful - it is a magnificent french style chateau that took 23 years to complete.

We went to look at the Fashion and Textiles Gallery.
As a group we were set the task of chosing a garment that we thought could be influential to the trends on the catwalk for spring summer 12. 
We chose the garment below
We chose this bishops alb because of the lace used around the cuffs and on the bottom.

Lace is a huge trend for S/S especially mixing it with pastel shades which is also a big trend.
Louis Vuitton, Valentino and Erdem being only a handful who are utilising lace this season.

I couldn't get over was how thin womens feet used to be years ago!
