J. Crew has this awesome belt for $68. Seeing as I want to wear this belt with ONE dress maybe twice all summer I thought I would try to make it myself. After a quick trip to a nice florist I found a pretty rose, removed the stem, attached a bar pin .... voila instant accessory! I do think I need a different ribbon OR I need to come up with a way to make it smooth all the way around. The hanging ends don't look as polished as I would like. Please excuse the dark photos.
a. Flower; b. flower with bar pin; c. tried to get the full experience without wearing dress; d. gave in and put the dress on.
