A few years ago, I decided that my wardrobe needed a boost. I went shopping, determined to find a new look, and came home with... are you ready? A belt. This wasn't just any belt. It was woven leather that "buckled" by a complicated looping though a big metal ring.
Doesn't sound like me, does it? It wasn't - I never wore it.
I tried to convince myself that I would like it if I ever wore it past my bedroom door. Then I would look in the mirror and put it back in the drawer.
However, today is a new day. Starting now, I intend to wear that belt out! Here's what happened...
I finally admitted that what I didn't like was the ring and the looping business. So I ripped it apart...
... and the part I like is now the strap for my finally-finished computer bag.
My wardrobe may still be lacking, but this bag is fine!
