We all love them and have at least one wool coat in our closet. Black mostly, but i would really like having a red one! Or an emerald green! Someday! Until then i gave a small retouch to one of my two coats. I bought this one, like many other things of my wardrobe, from one of my favorite online stores, YOOX.COM . Half of my shoe collection is from there! And this coat, which despite being almost five years old and having been worn a lot, is still in perfect condition! So, here is what i did with it…
I bought this decorative leather ribbon without being sure what to do with it. I just liked it a lot.
When i took winter clothes out of the closet i thought of using the ribbon to refresh my coat a bit. I sewed it to the pockets and around the sleeves.
But i was not really pleased with the result. I thought then of changing the buttons. And after that i thought of something that would cost me nothing, since i had everything i needed! I mixed white glue with black and graphite glitter and applied it on all of the 16 buttons the coat has!
And i can always remove the pocket and sleeve decoration and buttons next year to change its look again. Although, getting a new one sounds like a good idea! Have you ever bought anything from YOOX ?
