My self-prescribed sartorial challenge has taught me many things already; things that new and things that are building on the snippets I already noticed in my life. Known fact: there's a lot of black and white in that wardrobe ( actually, sadly, it's not even a wardrobe - more like a mass of drawers and… Continue reading much ado about bottom-halves.
Because I just did it. Look, technically it was more of a scarf-posing-as-belt plus a legit belt, but same thing really. The concept remains.
