P is for Pleats

Let's look in my closet:

      Pleated skirt - nope.
      Pleated pants - nope
      Pleated shorts - nope

This was my dilemma with today's challenge from My Greatest Fashions ABCs of Style.  So...what to do?  Then, I remembered a picture I saw on Pinterest of a pleated collar/necklace made out of an old necktie. 


My husband wouldn't like it if any of his neckties went missing, but I had thrifted a polka dot belt on Thursday without any plan of how to wear it.  Perfect, I thought, and got out my needle and thread while watching Jimmy Fallon on Friday night.  Add a brooch, and here's the result:

Shirt - Kohls, $15 with vest
Collar - Made by Me, $0.50
Brooch - thrifted, $0.50
Pants - JC Penney, old
Socks - All About Socks Outlet, $0.50
Shoes - Smith's Marketplace, free with rewards points

I'm linking this outfit up to:


  1. that collar is so cute!! well done you..! x :)

  2. Awwwwwwwww, very creative! Add-on collar is all the rage now, well, this could be one, though you mentioned it's a necklace. I love statement necklace. Funny, I used to dislike wearing necklace because it feels like scratching my neck, haha!
