Tulip Folds

I literally squealed with delight when I found this gorgeous, silk blouse tucked away at Decades Vintage. The different shades of blush caught the corners of my eye and I already had the perfect outfit in mind even before I went to pay. To modernize the look, I took the shoulder pads off, rolled up the sleeves, and paired it with silk shorts I snatched up at last year's Intermix sample sale. Every time I throw this blouse on, I'm so amazed at the construction and how well it has held its shape over the years.

{what i wore: vintage tulip blouse, alex lane shorts, valentino peep toe bow pumps, vintage bally bag}

Oh gorgeous! That's the find of a lifetime? How are the prices at Decades? I'm always scared to go in there, because I know some of the stuff they sell is crazy expensive!

By the way! This just crossed my mind that you would probably be a great person to ask! I'm looking to create a headboard so that I can upholster it with the fabric of my choice in order for it to suit my room. I think I'm going to be adventurous and go with the route of buying the wood and padding and putting it together myself. I am a first time home DIY-er, sodo you have any tips for me or do you have any other methods or alternate ideas that I could do to achieve this?

Thanks so much! :D
