I was recently there this past weekend on the prowl for buttons to add to a new, yet slightly warn blazer that I scored at my local consignment shop. The blazer is fabulous, however, the floral buttons it came with... not so much. After further inspection I am 99% sure that these were not the original buttons, so I didn't feel the least bit of guilt when removing them.
I probably could have spent days scouring the third flood of this button-like kingdom for the perfect set of buttons, however, I had a pretty good idea of what I was looking for when I arrived. When I spotted the little gems on the very top shelf I knew it was a match made in heaven.
Now that my project is complete I am super excited to pair my revamped Moschino Cheap and Chic blazer with just about everything!
I've also been searching though my closet in search of other pieces that need some "reworking" or could use a little button makeover. It's definitely cheaper than any other form of retail therapy. What are your favorite DIY projects or ways to spruce up an old fashion favorite?
