DIY of the Day: Neon Coral Collar.

I saw my friend Rosie Assoulin (amazing artist, designer and party planner or “All around ass kicker and girls girl about town!”) wearing one of these bad boys (with a phenomenal vintage linen orange shirt dress and Fendi color blocked heels no less!) and  I had to know where she got it. She told me she MADE IT and of course that was like magic to my ears!

And then when she told me what she used to make it… the exact thing I bought and blogged about this week, the American Apparel Neon Nailpolish! We both used Neon Coral. She used a vintage collar that she bought on Ebay, and I was so obsessed that I hunted all the stores in Manhattan that might have one and bought this one on sale at Express.

And As Rosie pointed out, you can constantly change up the color of the collar by wiping it clean with nail polish remover and reapplying. I’m never taking this baby off.

Dont worry Rosie and I already set up play dates for ourselves this summer… I love meeting like minded souls!

(P.S. Check out my new art website! I’m loving the cleaner look… HERE.)
