ascot & lace
You see that little gorgeous ascot there? I was pretty excited to wear that. You see, it actually isn't an ascot at all. It was a belt on a pair of jeans I bought way back in my freshman year of high school. Needless to say, those jeans don't fit anymore and I'm not really sure if this would be that fab as a belt? So I tied it around my neck. And I kind of loved it, pattern mixing and all. Stripes on the shirt, dots on the ascot. Oh and a lace skirt, because you can't go wrong with that. Well, I guess you could, but I like to think you can't.
The idea for making this belt an ascot was definitely inspired when I re-read this post from Elsie's blog. She mentioned finding a sash from a vintage dress, and I tried looking for a bit but had no success, then, in the process of trying to find my cap and gown for graduation, I found this little belt (and some others that might be ascots too) and I tied it around my neck and we've been best friends ever since. ;)
