The Tuxedo Belt

picture borrowed from: DownEast Basics' Tuxedo Belt

It all started with the above belt. Isn't it the cutest? I had received a catalog in the mail and thought the belt was definitely something I could wear. (Specifically for the upcoming MML Convention I have in June.) The main problem? It has not been in stock online at all. And it was March's catalog.

I had to take matters into my own hands.

In the winter I bought a few yards of gray fabric to make another dress. And, well, it just didn't happen. (In fact, I thought I would wear said dress to Taylor's Court of Honor.)

I decided to delve into the gray because, hey! I can always buy more fabric. I also used gray because I've been on a real gray (+ yellow) kick lately. Oh, and it was colder then and didn't feel like spring with her 85-degree days with humidity. So gray was totally acceptable.

But then spring finally reared her pretty face and brought some warm (and hot) weather our way, so a change was needed. I got my tail to the fabric store and bought some pink. And yellow.

I think I might change things up and put a ribbon tie on the yellow one. ::wink::
