Now this is a story all about how my life got flip turned upside down, and I’d like to take a minute just sit right there, and I’ll tell you all about how I became a prince…

Wait, what? 

I was trying to find something interesting to lead off this post with and the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song popped in my head. Don’t ask me why, because I have no idea.

Now, let me tell you about this here neon blouse. I love bright colors, but even I was like WHOA this is bright when I saw it on the rack. BUT, it was on sale and then I got it over Easter weekend and so it was an additional 50% off even the SALE price and so I ended up snagging it for like $16. But that’s neither here nor there. It’s one of those blouses that once I tried it on I just fell in love with it.

However, another totally random, somewhat related but unrelated story about it… right as I was walking out the door to go take these photos, the middle button on it popped off. It had been coming loose for awhile because something snagged on it in the dryer, but I was praying it would just hold on.

So, I still have the button, but I have a confession to make… I can’t sew for jack squat. Sure, sewing a button back on should be a pretty basic thing to be able to do, but alas, I mess it up every time I try.

I took home economics in middle school and made an angel pillow just fine (okay, the pillow looked pretty jacked up if you ask me), but sewing just is not my thing.

However, I refuse to PAY someone to put a button back on, so I shall attempt to reattach the button this weekend.

I’ll let you know how it goes.

You know, if you even really care. 🙂 Bahaha!

What about you? Snagged any awesome deals lately? Anything you SHOULD be able to do but don’t know how? Anyone else sewing-challenged?
