Today I’m giddy to be teaming up with Caitlin of Style Within Reach and Grace of Stripes and Sequins for an outfit + DIY post! While brunching in NYC last fall with some blogger friends, Caitlin realized she had almost an identical pearl-collared blouse I had on. Not so unusual to have a similar item, except they were both vintage…and we found them in thrift stores hundreds of miles apart! (Caitlin lives out on the East Coast – far far from this Midwest girl!) We both love our pearl-collared gems so much, but unfortunately we can’t quite help you find one (you have to dig around your local vintage stores while crossing your fingers for that!), so the always crafty and clever Grace is here to show you how to make your own!
