OOTD: handmade icecream

Collar: by Collarbone. Dress: vintage, 1960s. Shoes: “Dance it Up Heel” Modcloth. Socks: Topshop. *** 1 item is handmade, 1 is vintage, and 1 is second hand ❤

I always felt this 1960s pink mini dress would just be PERFECT if only it had an equally sweet collar. Thankfully this provided the perfect opportunity to wear this sweet detachable collar with embroidered ice cream cones and a baby pink gingham bow, handmade by myself and Lilly a couple years ago. We actually made quite a few of these under the name Collarbone and were selling them for a short period of time. It was so much fun getting to hang out and come up with the quirkiest, girliest ideas and bringing them to life… but aside from creating something adorable with a friend, I think perhaps the best part was getting to wear them when they were done!

I also finally got to wear my new-to-me oxford heels. Due to their very, very light shade of grey I have had some difficulty finding the right outfit to coordinate with these… I don’t typically go for monochromatic shoes (unless they are brown or black leather, of course),  especially in a color this light but I was eager to try something new and make it work! I felt this worked but I think in the future I’ll probably replace the laces to add a little more fun and hopefully get more use out of them. What can I say! I tried!

  1. This outfit is too lovely to handle! You look gorgeous, and the ice cream cone detail on the collar is the cutest thing ever. I know there are *many* otherwise ordinary dresses in my closet that are just one pretty collar away from being perfect!
