Midweek Modness: Pierre Cardin Belt

I’ve been on a bit of a belt binge lately because even though I have lost quite a bit of weight, I still have a ways to go until I hit my target. So my trousers are falling down, but I don’t have the budget to go out and buy a new wardrobe every time I drop a dress size. Belts not only keep my pants up, I’m also secretly thrilled that I now have enough waist definition to wear a belt.

I’m particularly fond of this 1970s-style Pierre Cardin belt. A) I like the colour of the leather. It reminds me of a nice, tanned watch strap. B) I like the simple square buckle. This is probably a man’s belt made during the days when Cardin was basically licensing his name out to any and all buyers. But I still like it. A lot.
