Stacy and Clinton were right

I'm ashamed to admit that until this year, I didn't believe Stacy and Clinton when they went on about belts being miraculous tools of figure flattery.  However, I stand corrected.  I am blessed with a small waist, but cursed with large hips, and I don't know where these belts have been all my life.

Though I own only 4, my skinny belts have become a staple over my cardigans and dresses and I can't believe I went 27 years looking all large waisted.  There's no turning back now, and I hope to own several of the choices below before fashion trends change once again.


Belts!





I think my favorite is the studded J. Crew option on the top row, but I'm also wanting that leopard belt to wear this fall.

Are you a belt wearer?  If so, what option is your favorite?

I hope everyone has a happy weekend!  I'm off to watch Harry Potter tonight with N - can't wait!

  3. Amen, sister. I'm an "athletic" build (read: straight) and I've also only recently discovered belts. What? They give the impression of a small waist and curves? What a fool I've been! Oh well, glad we figured it out eventually :)

  4. So, belts are a new one for me too. they look so great on everyone else, but I thought, no, not for me! My friend with the crazy awesome closet finally convince me to wear one!

  5. I have the same exact body type. I discovered the glory of belts about a year ago, and now I belt everything! Well, almost everything. They add so much to an outfit and make me look my true size.

  6. I like belts of all widths! Usually I like the thicker version to accent a skirt or a dress. To create shape on an oversized item I like to use skinny belts. Great post and hope you add these picks to your wardrobe!

  7. I totally agree! My belt collection is pretty small (one skinny but not wrap around and one wide belt) I need to change this pronto :)

    Happy Friday!

  8. just recently got into the belt trend! i'm loving it a ton. my only problem is it can give me a sweaty mark when outside in the summer. hopefully they'll still be in this fall!

  9. I just started wearing belts as accessories this spring. Makes such a huge difference! My favorite belt is the Loft buckle. It can go around a tiny waist or around hips. All-purpose- my favorite! Enjoy Harry Potter- I'm on my way to see it this afternoon!
