Fashion Repeats

I've been kinda busy lately and I realize that I've been neglecting my blog a bit.  Shame on me!  This week, I am working on a few new styles and I always like to do a bit of research first -- some brainstorming to get the creative juices flowing.

I promise to share more on these garments later, but in the meantime I came across this amazing photo on the net (from an old LIFE magazine).  Something about it is speaking to me... perhaps that insanely wide and magnificent leather belt adorned with metal hardware.  How many designers have cinched the waist of a runway model with a version of a cummerbund style belt?  Good style and good fashion always repeats itself.

  1. I had an orthopedic doctor tell me once when I had a pain in my back that I should wear a weight lifting belt when I was at home to add extra support. I laughed in his face and ignored his instruction. If I had a belt like this as an option I would have. Support and beauty can coexist.;-)

  2. This is why I have such a hard time throwing away anything. Though I'm sure some of my 80s styles like my suede vest in canary yellow I bought in Florence are not the ones being shown today. I still love it though and I'm keeping it.

  3. I like a belt that doubles as a corset. When all else fails just cinch it!
