A Little Button Fix
The button overlords have not been smiling on me lately so I finally resorted to buying some online to get a "fix". Those of you who love buttons will understand. I bought this little pile of bling from Etsy seller Converged Commodities. All are metal except the black one, which is plastic. The square one is my favorite. I think it is the oldest one and the rhinestones are set in some sort of pot metal.
I scored this vintage Kusnadi New York top on my last trip to The Bins. It doesn't fit me but who could resist it at the prices at The Bins and with those buttons!
I don't usually gravitate to designer and studio buttons but I love these. They look to be made of MOP or bone and they are carved. I will save the sweet brocade fabric from the sleeves, as well.
Do you ever buy used clothing for the buttons?
