The Post You've All Been Waiting For

Remember the belt saga? I thought I had found it. But I was wrong. Because this time I really did find it. And procured it.

How did I find it? My new favorite fashion blogger -La Vie Petite - was wearing it in a post. I was just looking through her blog and BAM, there it was! (She's wearing it here and here.) Turns out all this time THE belt, MY belt was at Forever 21. I ordered it immediately. The shipping cost more than the actual belt. This is the handy-dandy link. So you can witness for yourself it's loveliness.

Now, I have to tell you: I checked Forever 21's website all those months ago but didn't find it. Maybe it's because the picture looks like THIS:

As you can plainly see, from the front it doesn't look like a striped belt. Obviously why my keen powers of observation overlooked it.

Oh, what's that? You want to see pictures of it? Well. Okay!

Outfit details: Skirt: made by me. Cardigan and shirt: Anthropologie. Belt: Forever 21. Shoes: Thrifted.

And now for some outtakes:

Too much light:

My feeble attempt to show the side view resulting in the most awkward pose of all time:

Giving instructions to the photographers:

Trying to set the self timer:

Meet my photographers:

And now I promise. No more about the belt.
