Fancy Pants

Once upon a time I had some brown wide-leg pants from Anthropologie with mismatched buttons on the back pockets.  One was light blue with a white stripe around the edge.  I loved that detail and, by extension, those pants.  And absolutely wore them out (as happens all too quickly with clothes from Anthropologie).

Those pants were probably at the back of my mind when I bought these wide-leg jeans at a thrift store.  They happened to be missing a button.

A couple buttons later (I bought big ones to make my butt look smaller). . . Image

viola!

(I also did a quick overdye with this).  Overall I’m pretty happy with how they came out.  Although I admit I was hoping for a little more from the oversize buttons.  Sigh.

Good thing I also bought this.  : )
