Snake skin

Black handbag TOUS, similar one by UGG here, Calvin Klein here and Botkier here
Zara jeans, similar high waisted jeans here - White button shirt Forever 21, similar here - Black flats Vera Wang Lavender
1960's snake skin and leather belt, prettier multi color belts here and here

When I was gifted this 1960's multi color leather and snake skin belt, I politely said "thank you". It was part of a vintage haul from my 90+ great grand aunt, whom I often refer to as my "Fairy Grandmother of vintage" or "vintage fairy". However, I did not love it. Maybe it was the colours or the snakeskin itself, I still don't know. However since starting the 3 month shopping ban at the beginning of January, I've been pulling clothing and accessories that are just in a closet limbo. This belt was in that closet limbo: in the closet, yet never worn. I thought I'd venture in it today and for now its a keeper.

I think it is a cool belt! Plus, it is neat to have a vintage piece from your aunt.

Funny how you may not like something at first and then one day it just click and looks great with an outfit!
I love everything about this:)

That is definitely a keeper! What a special statement piece! Love how it pops against your white blouse!

It's amazing what we can find when we just focus on what we own! :)

I actually really like this belt - it does make quite a statement but pairing it with jeans and a white shirt are perfect to let it shine.

Hope you are having a lovely start to the week :)

The belt is such a neat piece and brings a fun pop of color, print, and texture to your look. I'm so glad I held onto pieces from my grandmothers and great-grandmothers because my taste has definitely changed over the years. Things I thought I'd never use have become favorites.

It's nice to have a vintage fairy in your life! And I'm glad that not shopping inspired you to give the belt a try. it's a nice addition to a crisp white shirt. And hooray for being done with the first month!
