Beautifully Belted.

What transforms a simple sweater dress into a fabulously figure-flattering statement dress? What adds a little spice to a cardigan or a boyfriend tee or a simple skirt? If you guessed a belt, then you are correct. Yes, a belt. A beautiful, figure-enhancing belt.

Belts are my new favorite thing. The best thing about them is that there are so many varieties. From thin to thick, simple to embellished, there is something for everyone. Lately I love the look of wearing these beautiful bands around the very smallest part of my waist. There's something inherently classy and feminine about doing so... and I feel that it's a bit evocative of the glorious 30s and 40s. They are fun to play around with. Try wearing a belt as a statement piece, minimizing your jewelry, using a more conservative bag and letting the belt be the star of the show. (Besides you, of course.) Experiment with different placements, sizes and thicknesses until you find the combination you adore. See the options below for a good sampling of what is out there. And, as always, have fun.

I used to LOVE belts.

Now, not so much. One day my friend, one day.
