Weekly Secret Weapon: Old Accessories for New Ones

This week's secret weapon focuses on reusing scarves, neckties, and other accessories in order to create a new one, like a belt! As you may know, cinching at the waist definitely helps to create that hourglass figure and helps to make your waist look super tiny (and who doesn't want that?). I decided it would be fun today to use a vintage scarf and necktie as a belt today.



I loved the contrasting colors of the stripes so basically, I knotted them together and, viola! Instantly it becomes a fun, new belt. This can be done with many items including scarves, ties, tulle, pieces of fabric, ribbon, and even jewelry to add texture.



It's so much fun to mix and match to create new accessories out of old ones. Hope I've inspired you to play around a bit with your existing accessories to create a whole new look!
