Fashion Friday

i had some friends over and they were so kind to help me brainstorm ideas for the blog.  one of the ideas they came up with was devoting a day to fashion, hence "Fashion Friday". 

for this week's Fashion Friday let's take a look at a wardrobe basic.

the skinny belt
the skinny belt is a versatile item to have in your closet.  this belt can be functionally used, or used as an accessory.  if you haven't worn belts as accessories before a skinny belt is a great place to start considering its size is unimposing. 

a skinny belt looks great with just jeans and a tee:

make your outfit a little less casual by adding a cardigan and using the belt as an accessory:

it is also a great piece to pair with a dress.  adds a little excitement to a simple dress:

no matter how you use it, you can't go wrong.  my skinny belt was purchased 7 years ago at Ross for $4.  these belts have been in and out of fashion but it is definitely a versatile piece to hold on to.


ps. i would love to hear your opinions on this post.  do you like this idea of incorporating fashion into the blog or would you rather i stick to makeup? what type of fashion advice would you like to see?
