How Much: Free

When I Use It: “On dresses with moderately high necklines that need a little extra something.”

    Very cool! I’ve been seeing similar collars in mainstream stores lately, but I much prefer this antique version that has family history to boot!

    Collars like that are always what I hope for when I go into antique stores! It’s much more special that it was from her family, though 🙂
