In the bag
I've been searching for a while for a decent on-waist belt and surprised at just how difficult it was to find exactly what I wanted. If the width was right then the colour was wrong, if the leather was good then the buckle was cheap. I was having a Christmas present hunt for other people when I spotted this grey belt in the Comptoir des Cotonniers window - just the thing!
Italian leather, both belt and buckle. It was not cheap! I console myself with the thought that it is a lifetime purchase and will work well with any number of clothes in my wardrobe. Today I'm wearing it with what is normally an absolute slouch of a pinafore dress in black wool by Dries van Noten. It has a fold over hem thing, (don't know the technical term!)
Worn with a grey cotton blouse from Gap, a black cotton card from Nicole Farhi and Clarke's black suede shoes.
By the way I am being DRIVEN MAD by attempts to grow my hair. How do you get from short to long without a long period of time when you feel as though your head should be inside a large paper bag? Last night I had a bit of a go at the fringe with a pair of scissors. It hasn't helped.
