I joined the Accessory Hop over from Toy’s blog and wasn’t sure what to blog about. I love accessories as much as everyone else but am not always sure how to put things together. I decided to show a couple of looks that I currently wear and plan on wearing in the future. Belts are my number one go to accessory. I used to think I couldn’t wear them because of my full stomach but now I’ve learned how to wear them. I had a lot of fun with this.
Here’s what I came up with:
Snakeskin is everywhere this year and I found a belt with just a touch to incorporate into my wardrobe.
Vogue 8696 quick and easy jacket with belt.
Plain boring black shirt jazzed up with belt.
Silver Purse can all be carried when wearing belt.
New Belt option:
Add sparkly shoe perhaps with jeans??

Lastly, here is a quick and easy project for a belt. A little while ago I fell in love with this belt I found but they only had one left and it was Small. I could fit it around my waist because it was an elasticized one. I tried to leave it in the store but came back the next day and bought it. I wore it twice and that elastic stretched all out of shape. LOL! I looked at the belt and realized I could replace the elastic. Lo and Behold they have elastic belting in the fabric store. Who knew? I did not. Anyway, now when I see a belt that I love I look think of the elastic option. The snakeskin belt earlier in this post was bought at one of my daughter’s stores at the mall. It was extra small and on sale for $5. It’s pretty simple and easy to do. Here is how to do it:
1. Measure the width of your elastic belting and purchase some.
2. Take out the stitches holding in the original belting.
Next slide the new belting into place and stitch in the same premade holes from the original. and all done!
