#18 Back to School: Wood Look Buttons Upgrade a Basic Top



*I pledge not to buy any new RTW or thrifted for my after retirement "Back to School" wardrobe.
*I pledge to shop from my closet.

BEFORE:
Rust stripe shirt from the closet. Needed an upgrade to make the “back to school wardrobe.”

STEPS:
•   Removed the cheap plastic buttons.
•   Upgraded with wood look buttons from the stash. Love these!!! And I have more!!!

AFTER:
•   A simple change! This cotton / spandex blend is super comfortable.
Now, ready to wear with jeans, denim skirts, almost anything.

I LEARNED:
Much like changing jewelry can upgrade a look, changing buttons can upgrade a garment.

AFTER:
New buttons.
With a denim skirt.

AFTER: Very versatile
with denims, khakis.
AFTER:
Love these thick wood look buttons.


They look hand-carved.
Each button is different.




                           


Before:
Nothing Special

Before:
Plastic needed an upgrade.
