Getting ready for winter

I am going to Shanghai to visit a friend who has been working there since July 2008. My first trip to China and I hope it will be an eventful one. This is what I am bringing her as a present. I hope she will like it and I hope when she wears it, it will be the talk of Shanghai.

I got this from Kerrera Skye on Etsy. I listed her Etsy shop because it had some of my favourite items. I sent Kerrera a convo about the purchase and before I could complete the transaction, someone else had bought it. Kerrera knew I needed it quite urgently and she offered to knit another for me right away. She spent one weekend on it and I just love it. It is called Rita Ruffle. What I like about it is the ruffle around the collar, the tweed buttons and of course the detachable brooch. Do check out her Etsy shop. She has some great designs. I wish it was autumn or winter in Singapore and I could wear her designs 4-5 months of the year. We dream. . . .

The second piece is called Sasha collar. I love the grey colour with the contrasting fringe and mohair ribbon. I think it can be worn tied in the centre or at the side. Look at the detail of the brooch. I hope it's cool enough that I have to use it in Shanghai. I can wish and dream, can't I.
