Hi Gals, my lovely pink camera is back from being mended hooray!!! So I decided to celebrate it's eagerly awaited return, with a DIY fashion post today! I get so excited, when something simple and unexpected can do double duty and and add a welcome twist to my wardrobe.
I love the simplicity of this summers utility look, it works really well for my hour glass curves. I'm sure you gal's all have a purse/bag or two, with a detachable strap? Well feeling a tiny bit bored with my current wardrobe of belts, earlier this week I injected some utility chic into my look, by using a variety of handbag / purse strap's to create a range of utility style belts. Here are the results, what do you think, fashionable frolickers and reader's?
mmm, which bag strap, shall I use to update my wardrobe of belt's and create a more eclectic look?
What a cute little line up, all ready to be styled up!
Top tip - make sure, the weight and texture of your utility belt/handbag strap, works as well as the colour! Double wrapped this bubble gum pink belt/handbag strap over this grey blue origami dress, the contast is fun!
Add interest, to this simple utility look, by layering two shirt's, creating a pretty double collar
Simple grey denium shirt dress is given a expensive look, with this designer strap in burgendy with lovely brass hardwear. The beauty of these belts is you can afford to eat a few more fairy cakes and not worry, most detachable bag/purse straps have alot of additional length adjustment!! Tee hee!
I added this heavy duty weekend bag strap in burgundy, to this gorgeous animal print, light weight parker coat in dusky brown, the heavy duty brushed steel clip, looks striking and emphasises the waist of this parker in a casual way.
