coloured collar tips










shirt: asos
skirt: primark (old)
gilet: forever 21
collar tips: asos
shoes: very*
bracelet: black tied* & kukee

Quickie outfit post today as Im off out to meet my flatmate for a spot of shopping! Today hasn't been my day, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and everything seems to have gone hopelessly wrong! I bought these collar tips from Asos on a recently little spree, I've never worn them before but I actually think collar tips are pretty fun addition to an all black outfit! Might have to look around for a few more styles! I've posted the New Look Autumn Winter collection over on my ETC blog today as well as the makeup from this post! I've also been trying and trying to upload a video to my Youtube Channel but it won't upload in HD and even when I upload it from the HD video iMovie exports it still looks crappy! So if anyone can help me out with this I'll love you foreverrrr!

  1. These collar tips are so great! They make the perfect addition to your outfit! Maybe I'll have to invest in some myself, as they just seem like such an easy way to update shirts that feel a little over worn - love it!
