My new belt!

I HAS A NEW BELT GUYS.

And I'm so vair proud of it. I mean, ever since seeing the beautiful Rox's belts that she made in this post I wanted  to do one. Well, I wanted to do one ages before but never really knew how to (basically I was too lazy to find out lololol) but she gave me the boost to go for it! And so I did >:]
It's pretty simple but I believe it looks pretty darn good~ When I went to meet up with Amelie a couple of weeks ago I told her I wanted to make a belt, and she whisked me over to Forever21 and we found some gorgeous chains~
So voila, ze tools that I used for ze belt ;D The loops are actually ones for curtains that I got for like, 20p each tehe~ And then I just bought a good ol' £4 belt from Primark!


So let's start off with a shot of what the belt used to look like before I tweaked it. It looks like a normal belt - with lots of holes - so nothing special really. I find that simple belts like these are a hell of a lot easier to mess around with. 


Using a pencil I mark the places where I'd put the chain through. Then, by taking the curtain-rail-thing, I hook the chain through it. 

Then hooked that to the actual belt where I wanted it to be, and voila! Simples~ 

The finished outcome~ I later took off the tassle thing~


Just for some inspo on how & when to wear these belts I've gathered some piccies of people wearing D.I.A stoof~ I know the pictures are pretty old, but I just went onto tumblr to get them lawls :P


That's all for now methinks~
