Perfect is truly worth waiting for - got my belt!!!
One of the items on my wishlist is a white/off-white belt with gold hardware to wear with my work trousers. I have been looking high and low, for almost 2 years now and have finally found it!
Where? Gucci! I should have known since it's where I bought my first 'perfect belt' for jeans.
Not only is it perfect for trousers, but an added plus is that it works for more high waisted pants and my pencil skirts!
I did have a slight scare though - when I went home to try it with all my bottoms, I realized that I bought a size too big. I called the next day and was told they only had one size down in black - my heart stopped. The SA was kind enough to check other stores for me while I was on hold and they had one in the store at Holt Renfrew. I tried the black one and it fit great! So my SA had the white one brought over from the other store and finally, my perfect white belt is mine!
So... now that I've found this, what does it mean for my budget? Clearly this set me back a pretty penny and blew through the rest of my yearly budget, but having said that, it's also been a difficult piece to find, so, I'm going to have to say that I'm making it my one and only exception for 2017 and excluding it from my budget. Sometimes when an item is just right, you can't let the opportunity slip by.
