"Where's your blouse from ?" "*Whispers* ... Primark"

Hello chums.

I know I’m not the only one who gets a slight pang in my abdominal when I ‘m forced to admit that something I ‘m wearing is from Primark. I guess Primark’s not THAT bad, the price is right but the quality is bad (oh so bad). But I like finding diamonds amongst the rocks (decomposing rocks in some cases), like this teal blouse. I believe it was a breezy November afternoon when I fished it out in a Primark store. But yeah I loved it for a while, a good while, but after seeing different versions and colours of my beloved blouse, fear struck me.

I got really cross (LOL ‘cross’ reminds me of reception days) when I saw my blouse in a mustard version advertised in more magazine -_- (if you know me well, you'll know I hate seeing people in the same attire as me).

So I locked it up, threatening to cut it up and turn it into … well I hadn’t really planned anything, I was just gonna violently cut it up tbh. But the scissors were several steps away downstairs, so it was spared. Then, the other day at Portobello Market, I picked up these cool buttons. They could work as Aztec or tribal but have a perceptible 60’s look about them too. I had this amazing idea to change the buttons of my neglected blouse! I nearly ripped the buttons off without second thought towards the blog (the last two buttons didn’t survive unfortunately), here’s the before and after pics for ya.
Not bad if I do say so myself.

But seriously, it’s nice that you don’t have to buy a brand new top to spruce up an outfit, and all I needed was a thread, needle, 6 new buttons and 15 minutes. See all these little tricks and treats I give you guys. I’m too good sometimes…
