With RETRO FASHION being the new BIG THING, we thought why not share a retro DIY trick with you girls.

I totally adore the retro vibe, the softness of the rounded collars, their playful, romantic and arty integrity, and their feminine appeal. A pointy shirt collar is strict, crisp and masculine, whereas a peter pan collar creates a more ladylike and whimsical effect. Peter pan collars also do a great job of softening a very strong shoulder line.

Considering ALL THINGS VINTAGE is the new high of the season we thought sharing this SUPER SIMPLE DIY trick would be a great idea!!!

HOW TO CREATE A LACE PETER PAN COLLAR!!

Supplies:

> Plain simple t shirt or a top

> Fancy Lace

> All pins / Fabric Glue

> Pair of scissors

When Angelina Jolie’s leg stole the Academy Awards recently this year, who thought her thigh high Atelier Versace outfit would start a red carpet trend.

The temperatures outside may be dropping, but slit lengths are rising this season.

So we thought rather than spending mullah on designer high rise gowns why not raid your mumz closet this time 😉

All we had to do was manage to get a few obsolete housecoats and team it up with bold waist belts , tights and daisy dukes.

Here you go……
