CLICK ON THE PICTURES TO SEE THE BELT DETAILS (and please ignore the mirror that needs cleaning).
OK, first up was something I did on a whim - I had the shirt and cardigan on, and just before I left for work threw on the only belt that I owned (at the time). I think I like the look but not the belt with the patterned top. (Paco was checking himself out in the mirror, too).
Same shot, I just had to include it because Paco was looking at me and I know he was thinking "what the heck are you doing, lady?"
Now we get to the skirt that I bought at Target on Friday night, along with the next two belts. BTW, the skirt is part of their Fit Solutions line - it has a pair of Spandex bike shorts built in to keep the jiggling down - cool, eh?
First I paired it with a skinny black belt over a blouse (note: the white square is the tag). I like it; Jeff wasn't too impressed. He thought I should wear a wide belt, and I tried one at the store but it felt like I was wearing a WWE prize belt - no thanks!
This belt was Jeff's pick. While I like it, I think it emphasizes my belly roll. Plus I wasn't sure about the dangling chain. I even tried on a bigger sized belt, but the only difference was that the chain was even longer.
Same belt, turned so the chain is on the side.
So what do you think? Am I on the right track? Keep the last two belts or return them? I gotta say, it's been about a year since I've been fitting into "normal" (read: NOT Lane Bryant) clothes, and I'm still unsure of how to pull an outfit together. The one nice thing about a store like LB was that they had all the components there - you chose the top and bottom and badda bing - done! Now I'm shopping all over, trying to buy pieces that will go with lots of things, but it's confusing. Still, I'd rather have this problem than weigh 100 pounds more, that's for sure!
