Trend Spotting: Peter Pan Collars

Do you ever feel like there is a big disconnect between what is being worn in the land of Internet and what people wear in your reality?  It is sort of a bummer. I definitely feel my world would be a better place if I ran into more ladies rocking the Peter Pan collar.

At first glance I thought this was Twiggy, but no! This is a current photo from a contemporary fashion blog.

See? Peter Pan collars are awesome!  Don't you kind of want one (or a few) for yourself? Yeah, me too!

The other day Kathleen over at Grosgrain posted this link to a faux collar tutorial.

The elegantly musing Casey shows you had to make a detachable fur number.

And Suzannah spruces up some tanks using collars she made from vintage hankies! How sweet will these look under your fall and winter sweaters?!

Have I won you over yet?

Thanks for stopping by and commenting about ballet and tea length. Actually tea and ballet length are the same (mid-calf)but . . .and I know this sounds weird--ballet length can also graze the ankles so you were correct after all.
