This is what I wore to school today. I made this belt this past weekend out of two ties that I sewed together. I love the funky element of the belt, especially how it matches my shoes. Since its so busy though, I paired it with fairly simple pieces.
Skirt, Old Navy. Tee Shirt, Urban Outfitters. Belt, Handmade. Shoes, Aldo. Socks, Target. Vintage Camera, B&H Photo. Flower, Forever 21.
To make the belt, I placed the two ties opposite one another, overlapping, and meeting at the corners of the tips. Then I zig-zagged stitched the edges of the top tie to the bottom tie. The actual sewing took just a few minutes. The hardest part was finding two patterns that coordinated well. I got these ties at Goodwill for around $1.50 each-- now that's what I call a bargain.
Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!
