A Labor Day PSA

 
Oyez, oyez! This honorable court is now in session.
 
It’s a holiday weekend at the end of a season. I would be remiss if I didn’t spend a few minutes of my weekend working on your behalf. OK. Our behalf.
 
Note: I didn’t spend more than a few minutes, so don’t try clicking on the photos. I provided a link to the sale page where all of the products are shown together.

Wanted to make sure that you were aware that the following belts — perfect for your accessory prop box — are on sale at JCrew. Forty percent off.
 
I recommend buying your regular size if you like tucking the excess length in at your waist. But if you prefer a trimmer look, I would go down one size, if not two.

Patent Leather Skinny Belt

If your prop box is relatively empty, you should buy four of these belts. I would say buy all five, but even I don’t think you need three nearly identical animal print belts. Two of the three would suffice.
 
Less critical, but possibly more fun, are not-quite-classic sunglasses . . . which are always best purchased on sale. Matches Fashion has these from Kaleos, a rising Barcelona-based brand.

Have a fantastic weekend! Go see Crazy Rich Asians — it’s cute and you will like the heroine because she’s one of us. She’s an economics professor! Also: It’s a good movie for clothes.

  1. Hello funny posting about belts. I happened to have just bought a sheer lilac tinted plastic belt with matte black buckle, and a white leather belt with black top stitching and the same matte black buckle. I have only got a few clues about wearing them, and am especially excited about the clear lilac coloured plastic belt. When I decided to buy it in the shop, I actually wondered what the Directrice would do with it. She would wear it and look fabulous is what!

    • She would also probably want to stuff it in her mouth (like a squirrel) because that is her default when she sees something that is intensely delightful! The combination of lilac, PVC, translucence . . . cannot wait to hear what you do with it. I am thinking “white dress” for starters. The white belt can be worn with everything . . . although white dress would be very elegant with that, too.

  2. Directrice, I was also thinking ‘white dress’ with the transparent plastic lilac belt! We have great minds. Stuffing the belt into your mouth, like a squirrel, is a fantastic and hilarious thought! I’ll think of that and enjoy that thought when I wear my belt. Many thanks for the fashion fun!
