Jeweled Waist....





If you’re like me you probably like something a bit out of the ordinary in your accessories and perhaps you like to experiment with vintage accessories in a new ways. A new belt from Topshop, ASOS or ModCloth, though seriously gorgeous, to match that vintage dress you’ve just acquired will set you back more than a few pennies. Sweater guard clips are a small investment that can help you achieve the look of those magnificent belts without spending a fortune. These little jewels are easy and inexpensive to find and can turn that ordinary cloth belt into an eye-catching compliment to your ensemble. One guard in the center for an understated look or a few in a row to make more of a statement.









P.S. Some vintage sweater clips you find may have weak jaws from years of use. Make sure your jaws are strong!!  One more thing! Please take a look at some fabulous jewelry coming up on my little ebay store and if you see pieces that aren't yet listed just contact me and I'll be more that happy to add  it as a buy it now since the holidays are just around the corner.  Please see photos below.
