Warm & Cuddly


This grey over-sized woolen pullover has been 'borrowed' from my dearest brother :)
It's the really comfy and warm and I could live in all day! It just goes to show that something comfortable need not look drab and boring, it can look fun and fabulous to!

Wearing:
Over-sized pullover: Brother's, black dress (worn under it): Benetton, Electric blue tights: Hong-Kong, studded elastic belt: Hong-Kong, Suede ankle boots: Charlotte Russe, Gold bracelet: Theme


Especially in winters when we tend to wear multiple layers and baggy clothes, BELTS are the perfect accessory to balance an outfit; they can be used to emphasize the waist and break down a bulky sweater/dress.

I have some belt trivia for you guys...
Did you know? that, before the 1920s, belts served mostly a decorative purpose, and were associated with the military, it was common for officers to wear extremely tight, wide belts around the waist, on the outside of the uniform. These tightly cinched belts served to draw in the waist and give the wearer a trim physique.
Isn't that cool!

Thanks for stopping by

  1. With a tiny waist like that, you can carry off anything! And hell, you look gorgeous. Why don't you pick up a little healthy model and style her?
