I've always wanted a really nice belt - a black leather one with a nice gold or silver buckle. The Hermes constance belt, aka the "H" belt, has always been on my mind. However, I just can't come to terms on spending over $1000 on a belt because I don't even wear belts. I tried to justify buying it because the Hermes belt is reversible. So it would be 2 belts at about $500 each. But still, I would be spending over $1000 on a belt. $1000 on a bag is more justifiable in terms of the "cost per wear ratio" because I use bags everyday and I'll get my moneys worth out of it since I use it all the time.

Then I stumbled on this baby. This vintage MOSCHINO style belt was recently re-released. It retails for $295USD at the official Moschino website. Which is pretty reasonable for a designer belt. I've seen so many stylish bloggers wear this belt before and I was just kicking myself in the past because I can never buy it again because it's vintage. Also, I didn't trust Ebay because of fakes. You know how much I hate fake things and everything it represents to wear fake stuff.

This belt comes in a gold or silver hardware. My size is available in the silver hardware but not the gold. I was gravitating towards the gold more because I love gold against black. There is the next size up from my size. I'm thinking I can always go to a cobbler and ask them to punch in more holes to make the belt smaller. I am definitely buying this belt.
I was searching some photos of this belt and ways other people have worn it. Here are a bunch of photos I've found from the internet.
You can wear it as a waist belt over a skirt - I will most definitely do this look
You can wear it with a romper - I will most likely do this look as well
You can belt it over a thick coat or blazer - I will not do this look because I personally think belting blazers, cardigans and coats look silly.
It is a great accessory overall and I never felt like this about a belt before nor considered getting a belt until I fell in love with this one.
I'm most likely wearing this belt with my skinny jeans with a blouse or a sweater.
The way she styled her outfit is similar to my style and similar to how I would style it.
