doing a collection of belts is a way to completely reshape and revise ones wardrobe, unsweeten a dress or change/enhance the silhouette of a coat.
additionally, when buying belts, editing the options in closet down to just those fine few - you have a daily relationship with these pieces. they start to take on significance beyond just Object. this is not a belt, this is My belt. remember your fathers or grandfathers belt? the character it is from so much wearing. why not form that relationship with ones wardrobe pieces you know what i'm saying. yes modern advertising says for the last 30 or so years more is better, cheaper is king. but what about queen. what does she want. she wants meaningful things i think. things that are worthy of her story over time. Maybe this is a process over years because she needs the right thing. or maybe she's not at her peak earning power yet so she's adding pieces little by little. and the wait itself adds to the signifigance. this idea of waiting, without impatience. waiting with satisfaction. this idea seems interesting. maybe to look at that more another time. but anyway, this item the belt. used for centuries from monks, to working men and women, evolving from leathers stretching into florescent plastics and everything inbetween. we've been sinching in and up silhouettes for centuries and whats interesting is to watch how this ancient staple continues to evolve into our daily life and into the new shapes of our current time. and for a purposefully curated wardrobe its not just the belts, but in the bigger picture to find and collect pieces you can enjoy for years and know exactly the contents - that can help elevate life to where it needs to go. when you've got the right tools, you're ready for what you've got planned whatever that happens to be. maybe thats climbing a mountain in winter so you need the proper gear. maybe its going into the important meeting to leave on top. the right wardrobe can help set the stage for all of that. and of course, yes - you can belt the arse off of anyone in the vicinity if you need to. you know what to do!
keep that knowledge with you at all times. e.
