I came across this little beauty a couple of weeks ago and although I really liked it at £32 I felt it was a little pricey for what it was.
I've quite fancied an embellished collar for a while now and have came across a few beauties on eBay, but never got round to buying one.
If you've read my 'Topshop haul' post fromm a few weeks back you'll know by now I already own a black peplum top. It cost me considerably less than the one above, despite it looking exactly the same (minus the obvious collar)
I set about searching eBay for an embellished collar and came accross this stunning piece for a mere £6.99 with FREE postage and packaging. Bargain.
It was so much prettier than the collar that came attached to the Topshop peplum top, and with my plain peplum top top costing a mere £18, both the top and the collar separatley came in at £7.01 cheaper.
Ok, so it hasn't exactly lined my pockets with gold, but it does give me the added bonus of being able to wear the top with or without the collar, plus I can add the collar to many more outfits I own.
It did come from China, however, I ordered it on the 7th July and it came today. As I didn't require it for any particular occasion I didn't mind the delay in it's arrival.
The collar is a mixture of gunmetal grey/silver beads and diamantes. It seems pretty robust and fastens together at the front with a hidden hook and eye fastening.
I can't wait to wear it with an array of pieces from my wardrobe, I think it can add such a unique touch to a usually mundane outfit.

I think I now have a passion for embellished collars and am probably going to spend my evening searching eBay for more.
Do you own any prety embellished collars you think I'd be interested in?
