To the tune of 'Le Freak' by Chic.
A khaki trench was #1 on my spring 'must haves' list. This one was on the clearance rack at TJMaxx for $30. Price was right, but the buttons were falling off and I just wasn't in love with it. I thought I'd replace the buttons entirely, but when I tried to pick them out at JoAnn's, I couldn't make a decision.
Went home empty handed and finally decided that I could flip the buttons over so the metallic cap (what's it called?) would show. It was just the thing to bring a little more dimension to the entire jacket. I loved the result and have worn it nearly every day since. Amazing the effect buttons have on a garment.
You'll see me wearing it in tomorrow's post.
