DIY: Buttons

Earlier this year I made a quick purchase of this overcoat when I came across an unexpected European holiday. It was really cheap, so I didn't expect it to have the most awesome features, so long as it kept me warm (and that it did).

I actually really like this jacket; it's warm but not too warm for our sunny Brisbane winters and it has a tartan hood which I love. I mainly wasn't fussed on the buttons that it came with; they were a horrible brown plastic button that made everything look cheap. Therefore I replaced all the buttons with new black and gold pieces.

I think the new buttons add a touch of class. It was really affordable to do and was an easy way to give a bit more life to a fashion necessity.
