Easy outfit update // new buttons

Easy Restyling Cover


I recently purchased this lovely Chanel-esque patch pocket blazer (€59.95) from the new Spring-Summer 2015 collection at Zara.  The style, quality and fit are excellent; however, I felt that the ‘plastic-y’ buttons let it down a bit:

Hence, I decided to replace the original buttons with a more luxurious style, and this, I think, has greatly enhanced the overall look of the garment.  I replaced the four main centre column buttons, plus I added two to the end of each sleeve also for a chic, classic finish:

The new buttons are from The Zipyard in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary and were priced at €1.50 each (including alteration fee).



Item purchased on 18th March 2015.  All links and prices correct at time of publication.
