quick fix

new buttonsnew buttons

what do you call a guilty pleasure that really doesn't need to incur guilt? Non-Guilty Pleasures? Either way, mine is fixing buttons. I'm not the best at sewing, but almost anyone can mend a fallen button with ease. It's simple and you can watch something fab (like right now I've got sex and the city going on) and you feel like you've accomplished something at the end!!

I've never done a full face-lift buttonwise until today! This little sweater from forever 21 has been missing a button for ages and upon going through my little button drawer I found no good lookalikes. This is when I set my eyes upon a small baggy filled with these white vintage buttons. Not being used for anything! I can't believe I didn't do this sooner!

Here, for reference, are the much less attractive original buttons:
