Something New and Sparkly - Inspired by Kohl's (Again!)






Top: Candie's, Kohl's
Skirt: Strawbridge & Clothier
Shoes: Candie's, Kohl's
Scarf: J. C. Penney's
Tights: J. C. Penney's
Barrettes: J. C. Penney's
Bracelet: Kohl's
Ring: Cloud Nine, Ocean City boardwalk

I saw this polka dot Candie's top in Kohl's about a week ago and was instantly inspired to make this Fabulous Felt Show Your Cards Necklace.  I've always loved red, black, and white together as well as the graphic look of polka dots and knew that the club, heart, spade, and diamond quartet would make for a funky finishing touch.  So, today I made the shirt my own, along with two camisoles.  There was also a matching ruffly tiered white skirt edged in black lace that I really liked.  But it cost more than I wanted to spend (the three shirts totaled just $27).  Plus, I rationalized that it was probably more creative to use my own standby polka dot skirt anyway. (The fact that it came from Strawbridge & Clothier's gives you an idea of just how old it is.)
