A swapped 1990 stone belt and a blustery day

This 1990 vintage belt was undoubtedly the coolest thing I came home with from the clothing swap. It was originally bought at a vintage store in Florida and I'm told the stones are semi-precious...which explains why it weighs about 2 lbs. I feel like one of those high school girls who have to walk around with a pregnancy simulator for parenting class. But I digress. I really wanted to wear it ASAP so I stuck it over a blouse and skirt for work, but I think it would be fun worn lower on the hips with ripped jeans and a casual tank top. Any other ideas?

My wedges are a demonstration of how I wear things *to death*. The diamond-shaped piece of material was originally covered in mini amber discs that shimmied as you walk. Of course, five years later they were falling off, creating unsightly little bald patches. So I summoned all my alteration abilities, grabbed a pair of scissors and snipped them all off. Impressive, non?

  6. I agree! this belt was a great snag! can't wait to see how else you remix it.

    I ended up inheriting quite a few new pieces from my cousin who came down during canada day. one thing I am now having trouble with is sorting! I feel like i am becoming a clothing pack rat!
