Sweety P said...

Belts are by far my fave accessory!

Intrinsically Florrie said...

I do love the waist cinching properties of belts- they can completely transform a look.
I personally go for skinny, sophisticated ones like the Brian Reyes. =] But seem to be wearing my new studded one a lot of late- it's so much mroe versatile than I imagined.

WendyB said...

I hate wearing belts but I just got a dress that unfortunately demands one. That F21 one might work.

Lovely belts, I adore belts adorned at ones natural waist its such a classic look and extremely slimming.
