a darker side?



Sometimes it is good to do something a little different.


I recently had the opportunity to style a belt that was definitely quite unlike the things I usually wear. For some time now, my style might best be described with words such as 'feminine', 'retro', or 'romantic' – a leather belt with chains and handcuffs is not a part of this. (Ten years ago, however, it was a different story... things were a bit more extreme back then!) I relished this chance to try something a little darker. This beautifully hand made belt is by Melbourne designer Peter Martin. It is heavy, sturdy and pretty damn cool.

belt – peter martin








I wasn't sure what to wear it with at first, and tried a dress with black floral tights and black peep toe heels... And then I remembered a style icon of mine for many years, Melissa auf der Maur. With the fitted pants, knee high boots and Victorian-style blouse, it felt a lot more like me.

It's a wonderful and powerful belt that needs a proper outfit and you did it well. Love this style.

Haha, that's fantastic! Great job. I used to dress like that back at uni - lots of Matrix-style leather coats and black lace. Funny how your style changes, isn't it?

WendyB said...

Romeika said...

This is so Aeon Flux/Blade Runner like, so cool, not to mention SEXY. I love to switch styles now and then as well.

Skye said...

That's a total dominatrix thing going on - which has got to be a complete 180 from your usual perfect prettiness - post these on W_R at your peril!

Great styling work by the way!

You make an excellent chameleon as you move so effortlessly between soft and feminine and phwoar,
me-ow pussy cat!

The Victorian blouse is the perfect juxtaposition with the belt.

Miss Karen said...

Whoah that belt is too cool! I love the handcuff. I'm dressing a little differently today too - there must be something in the air!

That thing really frightens me, but on some level I like it. It's quite a surprise. Lovely pictures.
