It may come as no surprise to most of you that know me, but I’ll still confess that my obsession with pearls is next level.
I was scouring the internet for an Oxford blouse with pearl buttons. I kept coming up empty so I finally decided to ‘DIY’ and bring another vision to life… and then another!
I started with an Amazon essentials classic blue Oxford blouse and some pearl buttons (also off of Amazon).
Then I simply detached the original, plain buttons and stitched the pearl buttons in their place! The whole process, start-to-finish, took less than 30 minutes.
I absolutely love the end result, it was exactly what I was searching all over for. And now it’s seemingly unique, I created this piece!
I loved the upgrade on the Oxford shirt so much that I decide to level up a light blue cape/wrap as well. It is a very versatile piece and I know I will get so much use of this because it can button and unbutton so easily and be worn multiple ways.
I likely ended up saving money in the long run… This simple upgrade made these pieces look way more expensive than what they actually cost. I easily would have paid double or triple what I actually spent had I located these online or in a store.
I’m so pleased with these upgrades that I’m already considering a white Oxford and another color shawl. I have a true passion for pearls!
I’ve linked the Oxford blouse, pearl buttons and cape on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app! If you feel inspired and decide to add pearls to an item you love, send it my way! I’d love to see what you create!
