If you like Hollywood girls’ look and got hour-glass body shape, check TFJstore on etsy.com: there is a good selection of hand made belts with charms.

Pretty Little Things‘ Black Ring Detail Waist Belt will be good addition to a small white dress. You can detach the hoop and replace it with Brass Floral Dragonfly Pendant with Patina or Gardanne Beads Golden Autumn Small Oak Leaf Pendant from artbeads.com for more sophisticated look.

Michele Morgan in La minute de verite (1952)
Lizabeth Scott in Dead Reckoning (1947)
Jane Greer in Out of the Past (1947)
Cleo Moore in On Dangerous Ground (1951)
Catherine Deneuve and Jean-Paul Belmondo in La sirene du Missisipi (1969)
