The collar

Today's outfit was put together in a flash. The vintage men's shirt was given to me by mum. For many years I didn't know what to do with it but kept it anyway and even fitted it.
The collar I crocheted this winter after I fell in love with the color of the thread. Alas, it was  so expensive I could afford just one roll. Thus, the collar.
Skirt thrifted and shortened/taken in.

See my lovely bag! It was waiting for me in a pile of belts , bags and wallets and had my name on it.

And now a closer look at the star of this outfit

What? The new collection for summer and spring is out in the big retail stores? Who cares? Certainly not me!!!
