I know what you're thinking - this post is not about The Pope but a different pope all together - Marlena Pope - ever heard of her? She's an ingenious blogger from the states and did I mention she writes for Rookie? I was reading an old-ish article of Marlena's on Rookie on how to make your own fashion collar , she began "Your neck will feel naked after reading this."

Naturally , feeling inspired I found an old school shirt and followed the suprisingly easy instructions , thus creating my very own detachable collar - and I was really very happy with the results,though mine was far less razzle dazzle than any of the other ones Marlena had made - I just drew a swirling pattern with a black fine liner:
I'll probs be attempting this again and next time I'll plan it a bit better by adding more sequins/beads/ribbon etc. and in general more eye catching!
