Black and White and Red all over

Did I tell you I was able to cross obi belt off my wishlist?  Well, here's how I'm wearing it:
Vintage skirt - FC ($8)
J. Crew shirt - FC ($7)
Obi belt - FC ($4)
Frye wedges - FC ($22)
Vintage pearl necklace - STA ($8)
Vintage Ann Taylor bag - FC ($12)

About my outfit:  I wanted the belt to be the star of this outfit so I kept it simple with classic colors in a classic silhouette.  The vintage pearls and updo give the look a ladylike, retro twist.  And, of course, I couldn't help but finish the look off with my mary-jane wedges.

I originally wore it with my black pencil skirt and polka dot blouse.  I was so excited to do a post titled "Lady Bug" but when I saw the pictures...something just wasn't right.  The proportions were all wrong!  For me, and my body type, I need to pair my obi belt with a more voluminous or A-line skirt.  Here's how it looked so you can see for yourself (this is the best picture from the bunch):

Would you wear an obi belt?
Do you ever re-style a piece after you see the pictures?  :)

And don't forget to link-up to the Best Form of Flattery tomorrow!  If you didn't see the inspiration picture for this week, check it out here.  Can't wait to see what you've come up with!!!
