Silver collar with peplum top

Pretty peplum top and skirt are back in style, like a flashback to the 80s'. They're popping up everywhere on the runway from Badgley Mischka to Jason Wu. Designers love them and fashionistas love them even more! The peplums emphasize the waist, creating a flattering hourglass shape for women. Peplum can be dress down yet be stylish, they can also be dressed formal and sophisticated. Peplum is voluminous enough, so I really suggest to pair it with sleek and streamlined pieces.
The next thing I want to mention about is this DIY silver sequin collar inspired by Marni for H&M collar. I fall in love with it from the first sign on the online lookbook but either they're so limited or everyone loves them because they were all gone from the very beginning of the sale. I searched for it for quite a while and fail :( Therefore I decided to do it myself. I have a couple great ladies sent me the outline of the collar and the work began. It took me hours to make one collar and I have made five collars! Call me crazy!! You'll slowly see more different colors of collar on my posts.
