Today was a bring the bling kind of day - I just couldn't resist the navy and gold mix!! I could do without that collar, but we'll get to that first!
The collar was a bit too datey - reminded me a little too much of the 70s and I wanted to keep the glam and lose the disco!
I seam ripped the first side of the collar off...
...and then got rid of the other! I didn't completely remove when I go to the point at the end of the V neck where they were both connected.
I opted to keep them attached and tie a cute little bow - it gave me a perma-bow which ended up looking fab!
Took it from long...
...to short, stitched a new hem and brought it in a few inches in the body to tighten it up!
The final metallic look??
It was chic, comfortable, retro, but not screaming Saturday Night Fever anymore!! I met up at the Grove for a screening of Black Swan and was overwhelmed by all the holiday gear, including this little cabin that was set up to promote the new Yogi Bear movie. I think it was made for those under 36 inches, but there was nobody guarding the door.
Threw on a cardi when I got a little chilly which totally had me channeling Emma Pillsbury :)
I mean, she's the queen of the bow collar and cardi on Glee...
...so it was as if I was heading to William McKinley High School but to rock the Home Ec. rooms instead of the guidance office or glee club room.
