Three Outfits With A Statement Belt From BV

Hello everyone! I hope you are safe! Today's blog is about three outfits with the same belt from Bottega Veneta. To be honest, I got this belt with shoes at the flagship shop in Ginza before Coronavirus quarantine in Tokyo. You can see about the shoes here. When I went the shop, there was nobody there except for me although many international people enjoy shopping there usually. It felt like that I rend the whole shop. I also experienced seeing the first-class interior, so I bought the belt on impulse although I decided to buy only shoes. I often do like that...Anyway, I would love to share my new outfits with this belt.


The fascination of this BV belt is the artistic buckle and beautiful leather. It reminds me of Elsa Peretti. Light-weight trench coats or rain coats get upgraded quickly with the belt. First, I styled this over sized trench coat with the belt. I found this coat from Levi's last spring, and it is trendy silhouette this spring again. Next, I wore the belt on my kitchen apron. It's perfect! Lastly I challenged to do "Pillow Challenge" that is one of challenges for "Stay Home". I chose some accessories with the belt. As a final touch, the gold cosmetic pouch became an evening bag! This idea was from a green book "Style" by Kate Spade, and she wrote that we can use a pen case instead of an evening bag. I also read her article saying that we can use a cosmetic pouch instead of an evening bag. Recently I read some old books again and remember what I wanted to try someday. A sketch in the third to the last image is a one of ideas for today's blog. I asked my son and my dog to challenge to wear pillow dresses with me. Unfortunately, they rejected that suggestion, but we had a great time during the photo shoot. How did you challenge to do new things at home recently? Are you planning to challenge to do new things?

この、BVのベルトの魅力は、エルサ・ペレッティーのベルトを彷彿させるバックルの形としなやかなレザー。薄手のトレンチやレインコートがさりげなくグレードアップします。せっかくなので、エプロンにも合わせてみたら予想以上のマッチングに感動しました。世界中で流行っているピローチャレンジも、このベルトを中心にして他のアクセサリーを考えました。イブニングバッグの代わりにゴールドの化粧ポーチを合わせるアイデアは、ケイト・スペードの緑の本『 STYLE』から。ペンケースがイブニングバッグの代わりになることが書いてあり、他にも何かのインタビューでケイト・スペードさんが化粧ポーチもOKとおっしゃていたのを覚えていますそんなふうにして、家にある本を再読して、やってみたかったことを思い出して試してみるが最近とっても楽しいです。下から三つ目のスケッチは今回の撮影のコンテ。アンジさんと五郎さんにもピローチャレンジをしてもらいたかったけど、このコンテを見せたら断られました。それでは、また来週もお楽しみに♡
