Vintage Inspiration: Peter Pan Collar

I love collars.

Maybe on everything?

A neat little peter pan collar always catches my eye. I bought a pretty little stand-alone vintage pearl peter pan collar the other day, and like the idea of being able to stick a collar on anything that I already own (or even wear it with a low neckline as a necklace). Those ladies of the olden days had it right - just buy separate detachable collars and cuffs to change up a plain old dress instead of buying a dress every time you need something new.

A little collar inspiration today:

I adore peter pan collars as well. Everything is cuter with a peter pan collar!

As I was typing this, I also started wondering how the term "peter pan" came to describe that collar style. The Disney 'Peter Pan' I know certainly doesn't wander around in a cutesy collars.
