I found the weirdest thing in my mom’s closet: a printed floral skinny belt.
I am print-adverse when I dress up, even though I love looking at prints and patterns on others. Maybe because I’m always afraid it will look weird on me (like how horizontal stripes make a person look wider, or how large florals make a person look like they’re wearing a muumuu). Whenever I find a really pretty print, I always try to minimize it. It’s not something I’m proud of, it’s just a self-conscious trait of mine.
Anyway, I’m taking advantage of this strange printed belt and adding it to an otherwise boring outfit consisting of plain solid colours. It’s so unusual… most people would use a solid belt to breakup a printed dress or something, but this is just really a freak of vintage!
And I love that it’s the kind you aren’t limited to belt holes. I think belt holes are evil!! They’re like an indication that you’re too skinny or too big. This is the kind where you just slide it in and tighten according to however comfortable you feel. That’s how all belts should be like…
