Hundredth post: Oh what a journey!

I could not believe that this is my 100th post! It has been a wonderful journey of learning new skills and experiencing new things (blogging, ployvore-ing and of course online shopping domestically and lately internationally) and making new friends along the way.

This blog started off as a platform for me to become my own stylist so to speak. I have a dream to work in a fashion magazine as a fashion writer or fashion stylist. Before I started to blog, I applied for a position as fashion writer but to no avail. Maybe due to the formal education I received which did not prepare me well enough to enter the glamorous world of fashion. This did not hinder me to pursue a short course in fashion design and dressmaking, although I work in a totally different industry now. Reality bites. Need money to pay bills etc.

What I have in store for Colourful Buttons in the future? I am not sure but most likely to maintain current features; v-day, fashion project, polyvore - outfits, thrifting stories. But I am thinking on a small scale project. Please feel free to share your thoughts; your favourite posting, favourite feature or anything you have in your mind. I would like to hear your thoughts.

My outfit for today; this is one of two first vintage dresses purchase. From that moment on, I fell in love with vintage. My vintage dress collections have grown tremendously over the time. And I believe it is still growing but on a slow and moderate rate.

The look:
Vintage dress from flea market
Thrifted belt from flea market
Strappy heels

Hope everyone is enjoying the day off. Have a great week ahead too!
