From Alexa\'s wardrobe to the high street, collars have been big fashion news lately, adding a bit of prim and properness to every look! Luckily for us, there is an easy way to get the collared look at home, and it doesn\'t involve buying a new wardrobe!

One of our fave thrifty bloggers, Jen from A Little Bird Told Me, shows us how to make a pretty collar to jazz up our wardrobe with!
