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.
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…

p.s I do hope you're not tired of me ... :S
