How to revamp your white shirt

A while back I shared a post about me wanting to re-discover some pieces in my wardrobe, if you haven’t read it yet make sure to check it out here.

What you’ll need;

  1. A plain shirt (I happened to pick white, but it doesn’t matter what colour you pick)

I went onto eBay and found these cute little copper buttons (if you’d like to buy some too, you can find them here) I ordered 10 buttons and got to work (whilst watching Keeping up with the Kardashians – because I’m slightly obsessed right now) with removing the old and sewing on the new ones;

And here’s what the finished look is like;
