Lust List: Collar Tips and Crochet Shorts #1

It was all about the collar tips at the Balenciaga s/s 11 runway show. However, it has taken me nearly a year to make my trip to the wild west. This cow-boy inspired accessory is on my current lust-list for the autumn and I think it will make a great addition to the androgynous trend of this season.

I currently have my eye on a silver pair on ebay but you can also get them from asos for a cool £10. But if you are feeling bad-ass, you can shell out a nice £185 for the balenciaga pair.

I'm thinking of teaming mine with a peaked collar shirt, ankle grazing black skinnies and a pair of brogues. I was slightly tempted to try my hand at the some DIY tips but once I realised a hammer and pliers would be involved, I thought otherwise.

Summer might have been over in May in the England but when it comes to my wardrobe, sometimes it's summer all year round. I have been known to wear shorts without tights in the snow and a summer dress and jacket in January. So adding a pair of crochet shorts to my autumn wardrobe is no different. I have been lusting after a pair for months now and have already failed once on ebay. So if anyone knows where I can get a pair for less than £20, let me know.

What's on your Lust List?



  1. Lusting after those knitted shorts! I WANT I WANT I WANT!! *Stomps feet*

    Urban art + street fashion addict:


  3. It's funny because recently I've really been considering getting some collar tips. But if you do not want to invest in them I know I've seen some really cute tops that have designs embroidered on the collar. If you get your tops with different designs it may be funner than wearing the same tips always. May be less expensive if you or a friend are skilled at sewing too.

  4. The crochet shorts are beautiful, but i'm not brave enough to wear them past summer!
    I saw some in my local H&M fairly cheap a few months ago, i'm not sure if they're still selling them though.
    Great blog :)
