One Dress and Three Belts


I remember reading something from a blogger once (It was Christine from My Style Pill): she said she always saves the belts that come with a dress, but she never wears that exact belt with the dress. For some reason, that style tip has always stayed with me. Here, I took one blush dress and styled it with three different belts–including the one it came with. I chose two other belts that I don’t wear very often and have even considered giving away. I’ll be interested to hear which belt you like the best….and whether I should get rid of the other two.

The Original Belt


I actually kind of like the monochromatic look the original belt offers plus the way this velvet sash flows in the wind is rather nice.

Twice Around Leather Belt


I’ve had this belt for a very long time–long enough that there are stray threads coming off the belt if you look at it closely. Since it’s a double wrap belt, I always like styling it with a tie rather than using the actual buckle.

Kimono/Aztec Belt


It’s quite possible I got this kimono belt around the same time as the double wrap one up above; in fact, I also got a purple metallic kimono belt like this one as well. I like the kimono part of this belt, yet I often feel like the Aztec print might be dated. Or perhaps I just don’t know how to style it in the right way.

Which Belt?

Please tell me: which belt do you prefer? I actually, despite Christine’s style tip, prefer the original velvet belt. I’m inclined to get rid of the other two. What do you think?

Blush Velvet Dress with Booties for the Holiday

velvet-blush-dress-1I’m usually the one in vibrant Christmas plaid or blingy sequins and embroidery for the holidays, so this blush velvet dress is a little bit more subtle for me. Yet, the texture is glamorous as is the low cut neck and high slit skirt. I am still not able to really wear a high heel–much to my depressing dismay. So, I’m trying out a solid heel with these sparkly go-go type ankle bootie. What do you think? Does it work? I am not sure…Do I feel glamorous and celebratory in this dress with sparkles down below? Oh yes! Happy holidays! Ho, ho, ho!! I guess a blush velvet dress works just as well as Christmas plaid, or multicolored sequins or even just plain sequins. But if the blush velvet dress isn’t for you, there’s always the LRVD (little red velvet dress)!
