Return of the Funky Doctor

White eyelet shirtdress, vintage. Brown strapless dress, Newport News. Brown pumps, Mossimo. Headband, Scunci. Dancing woman hair stick and silver hoop earrings, import store in Okinawa, Japan. Moth medallion necklace, Anthropologie. Brown pleather belt, Xhilaration. Brown purse, Kenneth Cole.

I’m wearing the eyelet lab coat/hospital dress again! It’s just so weird I can’t resist it.

I’m really into big belts around my waist, but I’ve found it difficult to find belts small enough – and I do NOT have a tiny waist. (It looks small from the side, but that is an illusion created by my oddly shaped rib cage.) I guess most belts are designed to be worn low on the hips, so even a size small will often be loose when worn at the natural waist. I’ve got this belt cinched as small as it will go.

Mike hates the big belts. He often tells me that my outfits would be cute if only I wasn’t wearing a belt over my shirt or dress. He especially hated this belt, with the double buckles.

Mike is crazy - to me, the belt is what makes this outfit work!

Dee - thanks for the show of support! Honestly, my husband isn't known for his fashion choices, nor do I let him dictate mine!

Nevermind Mike, that outfit is hot. As already stated, the belt totally makes this outfit stand out.

I particularly love this belt and I love belted looks. This outfit is real funky and it matches your art decor background. ;-)
