wear // current obsession: peter pan collars.

First and foremost, can we get a round of "oohs" and "ahhs" for my new blog design?  I've been craving an update/makeover for awhile, and after teaming up with the very talented Minna So to design my new logo, I got the opportunity!  Many thanks to Minna for her help and patience with me while I nit-picked my way to a new look. 

In spring 2012, the "Peter Pan collar" returned to fashion.  This trend gets its name from the first American stage production of J.M. Barrie’s play in 1905.  That's really the only instance in which this collar makes an appearance -- in the Disney version and the original stage version, as well as the text of the play itself, there is no mention of a little rounded collar.

This look has really grown on me, and I think its incarnations for fall 2012 are so cute and chic. 

I have mixed feelings about the Peter Pan collar as a separate accessory; I suppose I'd have to actually try it on with a top or dress to see how I like it (like in the first image below).  I don't think I care for it as a necklace that is not intended as an "add-on" to an existing garment (as demonstrated in the second image).

Would you (or have you) rocked this style?  Share links below, please!


  1. The first dress is SO pretty!


  2. Your blog looks great! And I love the dresses you picked! I only have one peter pan collared thing in my closet and I think I need more!

  5. I love the new layout!

    I adore peter pan collars. I'm iffy on collar necklaces though. I think they're cute if worn the right way. Otherwise, I think they look weird.

  6. Can I have the navy peplum dress with the sequinned collar please? thanks.

  7. DUDE! I am so with you right now! All of sudden... super cute. Who knows how that happened...
