I was in the market the other night waiting to check out. The line was a little long so I picked up one of the celebrity mags to look over while I waited. I noticed that belts as fashion accessory occupied a whole page. The ones shown were big, wide belts positioned at the waist and worn with dresses. While belts are not only functional, they also serve to bring attention to a persons sense of style.
I favor jeans or slacks and so do most of the ladies and girls I know. The ladies like narrow, plain belts. Young women on the other hand go for style and snazz every time. Belts for girls are a hot item these days. Webbed, canvas, studded, leather, colors, braided, it's all out there. A belt is not only a classic way to accessorize, a belt is very personal and unique to the wearer.
The addition of a belt to an outfit can serve a number of purposes. The most obvious one is to showcase the personal flair or style of the person wearing it. A young lady often develops her style by copying what she sees in a fashion magazine or movie or television show. Professional costumers and stylists draw from many sources just a s a newly fashion conscious girl or woman does. Art, nature, family and community all contribute to fashion and style, and a belt brings an outfit together in more ways than one.
I'm always looking for decent, compelling drama on television. I especially like shows that deal with the personalities and relationships of the characters. In the Untitled Jersey City Project, I think I've found these things in spades.
It seems there's a new land development project in the works and a sexy little reporter called Jane has written a scathing feature about it. She meets with the men in charge of the project and tempers flare. Three days later, a flame ignites.
I'm intrigued. Take a look at this video and see if you agree that this looks like very interesting television.
I'll never wear a suit or be as thin and pretty as Jane. But I do want to see what those guys are up to and why Jane's piece in the paper has irked them so. I love to live vicariously through people on tv and in movies. I never have to watch my weight, get a manicure or a brazilian wax. Jane looks like a real pistol and someone actually gets pistol whipped by Larry! Is there a connection? I'm dying to find out.
Watch the video yourself and please, leave me a comment with your thoughts. I really want to discuss what everyone thinks and if any of you would be interested in seeing more!
