Emma Pillsbury Style - Get The Look - Sweater Clips

Emma wears two appliqued cardigans in this episode. She buttons up the peachy-pink cardi, but leaves the green one open to reveal a crisp white button-down blouse underneath. To keep her cardi in place, she attaches a sweater guard to the collar. A gold chain connects two simple gold leaves.

Vintage shops carry some sweater guards, but not too many crafters and jewelry artists are making them. Here are a few cute handmade as well as commercial clips. If I ever find the elusive owl clips that Emma wore with her eggplant blouse...

...they will be mine. Oh yes, they will be mine.

If I had a buttery yellow cardigan, this would be perfect. That ladybug is just darling.
