As you guys have seen before, I really enjoy tweaking my fashion. When I don’t love the way an item or garment looks, I am not afraid to change it! Another reason I love doing this is that it makes me unique! I hope that these posts can inspire and encourage you to do the same at home. With a little bit of DIY, you can walk confidently down the street and know you will not run into anyone wearing the same great style.
I purchased the coat with these light tan, tortoise shell buttons. They were cute, but I immediately knew that the jacket was missing something. It needed more pizzaz! I am obsessed with gold, so obviously that was the first thing that came to mind. I wanted something simpler, but elegant.
I found the perfect round, matte gold button, and replaced all twelve. As I progressed I began to see that these buttons worked great with the double-breast, giving the jacket an almost military vibe.
Even before the button swap, this coat was a great transitional piece, making it appropriate for this time of year. It’s cozy but light, helping me move from the near freezing temperatures in the morning to the mid-forties in the afternoon. Now, with the new buttons, I think it is much more stylish and perfect for a cute spring look!
