  1. I have always been afraid of belts for some reason. I think it is because I am not sure how to wear them. The only time I wear a belt is with a sweater style dress to make the dress more form fitting.

    Your post has given me many ideas to think about. I love the thick blue belt in the picture above. Now I just need to see what I have where something like that would look good!

    • Dear Tanya! Thanks again for your comments!
      It’s true that the belt and few accessories can make absolutely very stylish image. I would suggest not afraid and try to play with belts, necklaces, bracelets and scarfs as well as hats.
