First off. A big thank you to all for such an amazing response to yesterday’s blog post about the “Instagram-Only” fashion blogger. You should all be very proud of yourselves for having such intelligent opinions. I certainly am. (Yay, my followers aren’t deadbeat trolls!)
Secondly, whoever invented this “belts over jackets” trend should be both praised and brought in for questioning. As you must’ve deduced by now, I’m really late when it comes to jumping on trends. I’m the person sitting pretty in last week’s style huffing and puffing at the latest like as if I’m just going to do what everybody else is doing just cuz Queen Bee said so. And of course, 7 months later I’m on the bandwagon singing all the lyrics by heart like a basic bitch.
I’m doing the same with belts over jackets. I’m trying to be all brand new about it. But there’s no fooling you guys – most of you have probably already pulled this look – yet nobody bothered to advise what one does with the belt once you take off the jacket. Well, let me tell you, yesterday I found myself in quite the pickle when I took my jacket off at the restaurant. What the fuck do I do with this random belt? My coat has no belt rings because it wasn’t designed to be belted, but because some genius pulled a trend, I’m stuck carrying around a belt like a makeshift weapon. (If your parents are Italian and you grew up in the 80s, you’ll know what I mean).
Here’s what I did. I wrapped the belt à la Hermès scarf around the handle of my bag. Now that, my friends, is how you start a trend. Although, I forgot to take a picture of that so I’ll just wait for Beyoncé to do it and then link out this blog post like I’m about to take her to court. Here’s the pictures I did manage to capture, however.
I’m curious: What do you guys do with the belt when you take the jacket off?
