belt one out

I adore belts more than any other accessory. I wear dresses almost every day in the spring and summer and when you are unhappy with your arms or your thighs a floaty dress nipped in at the waist is a super flattering, feminine look. 
I don't know if you guys saw the new Matchbook Magazine - I flipped through it quickly and was obsessed with one page - this Topshop dress and Alexander Wang corset belt.
I can't imbed the photo but you guys can go see it. Anyhoo, trying to do it but in more fresh, nude and gray tones, I got this lavender dress from good ole Topshop:

And am now scouring the universe for a gorgeous nude or brown or gray corset belt that does not have laces or any reference to the Old West. It is tough. My number one fave would be this Sass and Bide one from last season:

Which, of course, is nowhere to be found, like the Alexander Wang. Your friends at Alaia make belts like this:

And they cost upwards of $1900 bucks by the way...that is a used car in some places so no thanks. I finally bought this one from Asos but the only size they had was large so it will probably be too big and may be too bondage-y for me...

But I like the peachy nude color and that it is different. Anyhoo, help a sister out if you have a suggestion!

Your wardrobe makes my wardrobe look so boring.

I try to pick things that make me happy, Sabz, but at the end of the day I think we all grab the same shirt and pants out all the time - I know I have a million things I have never worn!
