nice l-o-o-o-ng belt wanted plse - on the net ideally.
My jeans slide down inexorably without a belt (not due to extreme slimness or anything ) so I need a decent belt. Want a nice, good quality one that will fit a wibbly size 16 . Most don't IME. Ideally something classic but maybe slightly decorative/interesting. Not Hermes or anything but doesn't have to be super cheap as will wear and wear it.
Must be on net as atm I think I will never see the inside of a decent shop again.
Lou, I had a one pound canvas belt from Primark (does yours have metal studs all the way around?) and it is v nice...except it certainly doesn't go up to a size 20! In fact it kept bursting open and then the metal bits fell out
Thought it was a cool thing, but not on me.
BTW, you are slender slip of thing so of course it looked vast to you
Honestly, it costs a whole pound and then falls apart!
Don't think I'll be getting to New Look any time soon, sadly. So will have to remortgage for Red belt , but not that one as have realised it is 5cm wide which is too wide for belt loops.
Red have v nice belts (IMO) with decorative buckles, but will these look as dated as ponchos in about five minutes' time? Please say no!
also sometimes I think it can be good to buy something just a bit 'fashion'. Due to budgetary and age constraints I'm not big into fashion but something like this can bring you up to date a bit (god I sound ancient!)
