I have a triangular body shape – narrow upper body and wide hips (“birthing hips”). I’ve always hated my body shape and longed to be an hourglass instead. Well, thanks to all the folks at Wardrobe Remix, I’ve learned to fake an hourglass with blousy tops and a cinched waist. I feel like Elizabeth Taylor!
I suppose I should also thank Charlotte Russe for teaching me how to handle the excess length on this sort of belt. Last time I wore it, I used my work ID to clip the leftover length to my waist. Then, at Charlotte Russe, I saw a similar belt cinched around a dummy’s waist. The dresser had pulled the excess back through the buckle to make a faux bow. Chic!
(Did everyone but me already know this trick?)
