Take a Bow

One easy accessory that can change a look of an outfit is a belt. Recently,the bow style of belt has caught my eye. I came across this Jessica Simpson studded bow belt at Plato's closet for $4.00. This belt had three great characteristics, it was elastic, studs, and a large bow. Belts are an easy way to make your look more up to date without breaking the budget.

These two photos show the different that one belt can make. It's a great way to accent your waist and give your body definition.

Since my belt was thrifted here are a couple of black bow belts:

  2. Me too - I love the belted look - and all the belts you linked to, too. Thanks for sharing your look and your tips with Visible Monday!

  3. SUCH a great silhouette, Carrie - you so know how to dress that great figure of yours!! The yellow sleeves are so unexpected, and I love the combination of yellow, black and grey. Somehow pretty and fierce all at the same time!

  4. Great tip! I find that the eye always goes directly to the belt buckle area, especially when the hole is getting a bit ratty, or the tarnish is coming off the buckle. This, however, is a look at me look that I love. My fav is the belted look.

  5. Everything working together! Love shoe-belt combo with this sweet dress. Very nice.

  6. With the belt! Such a great look!
    Love your shoes, too! <3

  7. Wow, I adore that belt. Great find. It really does change up your dress completely. I actually have a few cute bow belts but I think they're too small for my postpartum bod :(

  8. It's amazing how much difference a belt can make sometimes, great way to add colour to an outfit at times too.
    Love your dress & the bright yellow suits you xo

  9. That belt really gives the pop the outfit needs... although I didn't really think it needed a pop until I studied the 2 photos in order to pick a fav.... looks super cute on you!! :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you ...
