ANIMAL BELTS//a zoo around your waist

My mom and I have both been obsessing over 80's animal belts for the past year. The elephant belt was the first belt in the collection and the gigantic lion head is the latest addition. My mom is very skillful at pulling up obscure and demented animal belts on eBay. I love how stupid the glass eyes on the lion head belt look-it's sort of sweet. He has a 'Mona Lisa' like quality to him. His eyes follow you everywhere.

My mom and look forward to styling some outfits with these belts soon!

To people who have been asking: my camera is a Nikon D40.

for a second i thought that was all one belt and i began to drool
those are beautiful
how bout trying to wear they all at one time?

Wow that lion is huge! Haha. I have an Hermes elephant belt similar to the one you have. I got it at a consignment store for $30!! It's a little too big for me so I hardly wear it though.

i love these. i have one with two ladybugs (looks like they're kissing) and it's one of my favorites.
love your blog!

i agree with the above commenter who said they want to see all your shoes!!!! :)

Photo of The Stylish Wanderer

wow. and yet you never wear them...

I found a similar one at an opshop in Stockholm the other week. It was an eagel that you putted together so the head was in the middle and the two wings out to both sides. Not very big but really really cool!

Your belts feels a bit Kenneth J Lane-ish in supersize.
