Why have only one waist when you can have two, I always say. These stripy pants are very low-slung, which I love, and I like the wide-cut shorty jacket too, but I was seeing too much black so I added this fantastic belt I recently thrifted to add another waist and a pop of colour.
Can I tell you how much I like this belt? It's very long so after twirling myself up in it I left the ends dangling like little tassels. This is a perfect party outfit, just what I need for Patti's Visible Monday!
Here's the look I ended up with.
- pants, Joe Fresh, thrifted
- belt, thrifted, $3
- jacket, thrifted
- stretch wedge booties, thrifted (it was raining today so my footwear options were reduced)
- black T, Sport Chek
Below is a close-up of the belt. Note the glittery yellow disc in the centre - it's the superhuman power source. The studio lights kept turning it on which had the curious effect of making me levitate, so I had to keep changing my angle. Look at that loverly macrame! The tassels have beads on the end, good for flicking about.
And I have taken a couple of pieces of art off the rack so the visuals behind me are different. There is a lot of action on the art front these days... The piece on the right has little volcanoes on it made from sculpting fibre, and they are full of primordial colours waiting to explode. Maybe the volcanoes are the ancestral home of my belt disc - how romantic, reunited at last.
Me at one with my volcanos.
Have a great week all!
