If the fleeting beauty of a fresh floral bouquet isn't what you had in mind for your wedding or other celebration, you're in luck. Etsy seller Princess Lasertron makes custom bouquets from hand-stitched felt and vintage buttons that will last well beyond your ceremony, and perhaps your five-year anniversary. But you needn't be tying the knot to take one home. The one-of-a-kind floral arrangements look just as good set in a glass vase on your dining room table, as they do with your Vera Wang. Prices run from $60 to $250.
Jane Krakowski is looking cute as a button; she definitely knows how to work her dressy buttons. Her Catharine Malandrino burgundy button-down dress is classy and youthful and her monochrome tights and shoes are a wise choice. Buttons add a fun flair to any dress, without them, life would be a wee more boring. The best part about buttons? You can unbutton them for a less-cute, more-sexy look. Fab.
I always thought buttons were an old lady fad. Either that, or they were strictly reserved for those stylish blue vests worn at Wal-Mart. I was wrong. With the debut of
bitchy sassy buttons, teenyboppers and messenger bag toting folks started making "statements" all over the place. My personal fave is the one above. It's quite charming, really.
