DIY

8.13.2010

This isn't really an outfit post as it's Friday and I tend to be lazy on Friday's, it's to show you a very minor and simple DIY that I did yesterday.
I had this very "blah" navy blazer as you can see here. Ingredients to add some spice:

  • Gold buttons to replace the tone on tone navy originals.
  • Shoulder pads to give the blazer some shape.
Tweak for 30 minutes and presto...you've got yourself a delicious trendy blazer that looks like you spent a fortune on but in fact cost you peanuts..ENJOY!

P.S. I added a little design in my last pic to take the attention away from my feet. I hate my toes but I just had to show you these cute sandals. They're old but I just love the gold detail. Goes perfect with my new buttons :)



blazer: Forever 21 (DIY) / jeans: Zara / t-shirt: H&M / sandals: Aldo / bag & watch: Gucci

I love your alteration. I actually did a little DIY on my black winter coat the other day. The black buttons kept coming off and I was missing a few, so I just replaced them all with antique gold buttons. It turned out amazing!!

The blazer turned out great! I have actually been kicking myself for not buying this specific navy blazer a couple of months ago because it would have looked great with gold buttons.
