The secret: A CUTE BELT!
First of all, I am no fashionista, by any means. But I’m learning (slowly but surely) that a belt dresses up any look almost instantly. What looks plain and frumpy from the thrift store is TOTALLY transformed with a belt to cinch in your waist and to accentuate your curves!
This past Columbus Day holiday, you know my favorite thrift store had 50% off (and to think I ALMOST forgot about the sale!). I lugged home 2 huge bags of sweaters (and a couple dresses), and I felt like a kid in the freakin’ candy store! But the looks were a little “ho-hum” without a belt to polish off the look. So I found one of my belts and tried it on with every piece of clothing I had bought, and –man!–I felt wonderful! And pretty! When’s the last time you felt like you looked your best?
And that felt amazing, considering that almost a year ago, my butt was carrying at LEAST 40 extra pounds while I grew a baby. Finally, I am feeling back to “normal” and I’m ready to start enjoying my pre-pregnancy body again. (Thank you, Weight Watchers!)
So here’s my little fashion shoot down in my basement tonight, while hubby make inappropriate jeers at me while he snapped away on my iPhone. HAHAHAHA!
And since I promised hubby that I would NOT buy another piece of thrift store, buying clothing today was FAIR GAME.
And boy did I rack up!! Everything was no more than $3.00 each (mostly $2.50!!!!!)
I’m happy. Now maybe I can’t stop wearing the same ‘ole stuff to work everyday. WHEW!
So what do you all think?? Do you like the belt with these pieces?
