Fancy Shmancy Thrifted Collar!

Fancy Shmancy Thrifted Collar!

I’m on a collar kick today as this is part two of a double blog post from yours truly regarding the fabulous glam of the fancy collar—both on and OFF the shirt! (See my tutorial from earlier, “Upcycled Statement Collar Tutorial”.)

I was inspired by something I’ve had up on my fashion corkboard in my room for several months now. It was a feature on fancy collars from InStyle magazine:

I wanted to find myself a lacy, fancy long sleeve collared shirt to layer in several different ways and, as it turns out, a few weeks ago I found exactly what I was looking for at Lakeshore Rescue Mission Thrift in Grand Haven, Mi!

As you can see from the tag below, the shirt was $2.99, but it just so happened that there was a “Buy one get one” sale happening that day, so in reality, I scored the shirt for around $1.50.

                          The Way I Wore It...

I love the white and lace texture—I feel that it is going to pair with 
SO many things! (Click the pictures to enlarge--note that, in the last picture, I'm layering gold jewelry underneath my collar and I centered the collar with a gold brooch as well!)

What do you think?

Leave me a comment or question--I'd love to hear from you!
