Chasing the Dragon

Ok I got a little carried away with putting together the picture for this outfit but when I saw the Geisha belt at Fishy Strawberry it got me inspired.  I love the attention to detail in this belt; the multitude of layers as it wraps around your body and the bow at the front and the feeling of dimension when you’re wearing it.  There are a multitude of ways you could wear it – with a crisp white collared shirt, untucked with your favoured pair of pants, a 3/4 quarter length dress with a dramatic plunging V neck and shoulder pads (omg they’re back!)

Today I chose to wear mine with a short Cheongsam dress from Asian Inspiration, designed by SheOfTheSourSnailSuckers Sellery.  Isn’t this just the most fabulous name ever? I don’t know why but I immediately think of being tipsy on champagne trying to pronounce She’s full name. I’m sure I would be an epic fail but at least I’d entertain my friends trying! 😛
