It's a Cinch- Vintage Belts


Belts are the one accessory that I always have trouble finding. I love cute prints, bold colors, sweet details and a great price but they're so hard to find in my size. This morning, I took advantage of the big belt sale at Hannah Jane Boutique and picked up 4 skinny belts for under $25! I have wanted a leopard print belt for so long and at $5.99 each, I couldn't resist.

 I also picked out a basic red and green belt, which have been missing in my wardrobe for quite some time. Back and brown are easy enough to find but those fun colors can be a problem.

Since spring time is around the corner with fun full skirts and girly dresses, a pink bow belt jumped into my cart too.

 Hannah Jane belts come in one size so you can trim them down if needed. I can't wait for them to arrive! The Hannah Jane Boutique skinny belt sale is going on now till Valentine's Day. Use code BELT50 to get the $5.99 price on all skinny belts plus free shipping

  1. Belts are a staple of my wardrobe. Being petite and curvy and relatively short waisted, it's all too easy for natural waist to become enveloped in my clothes and look bigger than it really is, so a belt is a must for me with a lot of skirts and dresses (and sometimes coats, too). I was on the prowl for a leopard print one for ages too and finally found one (NWOT) on eBay for a good price a couple of years ago.

    I hope all your beautiful new belts work out wonderfully for you, honey!

  2. My wardrobe needs a leapard skin belt, now!

  3. Claire McCardell designed a lot of fab cinch belts in the 40s and 50s that still look modern today. The vintage pattern dealer "Mrsdepew" on Etsy has a downloadable pattern of 1940s-style belts that are basically McCardell knock-offs.

  4. There have been so many times when I've thought an outfit looked terrible and then added the right belt and loved it! You don't think about it but if you look at old photos it seems they were always wearing a belt of some kind. Love the ones you've highlighted.

  5. Belts are a "must have" acessory in my wardrobe. But, unfortunately, I don't know very well how to match belts with dresses and skirts. Wish I could have one of each one, specially the leopard one.

    I just loved your blog! Congratulations


  6. Off topic: but I was at DSW the other day, and they had wicker basket purses! A few different styles, but reasonably priced (I think in the $20-30 range). I'm assuming this is part of their spring fashion, but I know that a lot of vintage gals love that kind of classic, yet kitschy purse. I figured I'd drop along a comment in case you or any of your readers would be interested in that kind of thing. (They really were cute! I'm just positive I'd break it or the pets would do the honors for me :-\ )


I read every single comment (even on old posts) and they make my day! If you have a question, please email me at Thank you for reading me!
