I still have it. But it’s self-belted, and looks one notch below polished.
Recently, no longer feeling like someone who wants to wear seersucker ankle-tied wedges, I bought these shoes. (Marked down now from $395 to $264)
I still have them. They are perfectly polished, in a naked leather 70s-referent kind of way.
So finally, I feel ready for the dress to come into its own, and get ironed for heaven’s sake. I want it to act like a lady, albeit of a Northern California persuasion. A lady who has replaced her Costco sunglasses with RayBans.
I’m thinking about this belt.
Thinking hard. The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is in the Early Access phase. Of course, Sue’s the Nordstrom expert, and I urge you to hightail it on over to her site for the real story. But if you happen to own a navy linen dress, and a pair of light tan leather block-heeled sandals, you too just might want a navy quilted belt. Alternatively, a tan one with chain detailing, if you’re feeling wild.
