Belted in Black


Finally, I have a new camera! It's basically an updated version of my old one, so it didn't take long to get the hang of. It has a couple more megapixels than the old model, which means you get to see me in even greater detail (a decision I may come to regret!). On to the outfit....this dress is the same as in this outfit, however I have jazzed it up a bit with some fringing and vintage clips. As I mentioned in the previous Bally post, I recently bought an antique EPNS nurses belt, after much searching. I saw many beautiful belts which I would have loved, but never found one small enough for my waist. So, I started looking for one which could easily have some links removed, without spoiling the design. I got this belt for a very reasonable price, and allowed my father to expertly remove a couple of panels using only a hacksaw and ruthless determination. And a very good job he did too!

Patty Ann- Thanks for the comment, I'm not that tall! Yes the belt is metal, it is Electro Plated Nickel Silver (EPNS), like most nurses belts from that era.

Tiffany - my hair is really thick and quite long, so getting a lot of volume is easy for me. Sometimes I backcomb too, and I always use a ton of hairspray!

Stacy said...

i love your belt; and i must say, you are quite stunning! you remind me of a 50s pinup girl (in a good way!)

MartinGregory said...

Oh my word... the fringe and the clips make this dress a complete and utter showstopper. You could sell this dress by the millions... I swear!!!

Kayleen said...

OMG I would kill to see a tutorial of you making that hairstyle come to life!! I have quite an obsession with geisha/maiko style and just can not figure out how to reproduce a half decent likeness of their hair! Yours is perfect! Keep up the amazing style!
