It's likely that I will add more pictures to this post later, as I wear my dress more. I’m in love with the big white crisp collars, and I would like to add them under all of my sweaters and cardigans. I’m thinking of making attachable collars only- without the dress to make it even more versatile. I’m afraid I’ll end up wearing white collars all the time, like a good school girl.
It makes me think of a story about a teacher in a village. You know, it’s from old times, when there was only one school in town with one teacher. All the pupils thought that he must be rich because he had perfectly clean and crisply ironed white shirt every day. Once a kid visited him in his home and he was shocked by the poverty that he saw in the house. Where does the teacher get all the expensive shirts from? By curiosity he opened a suitcase while the teacher wasn’t watching, and he realized the man was only smart, not rich by any means. He saw a whole bunch of cuffs and collars, each pair tied together with a string, so they won’t separate while wearing. The teacher was wearing a clean pair ever day under his wool sweater, but no real shirt. He worn them to earn everybody's respect and to hide his poor cicumstances.
