Literally the best accessory you can ever buy!
I’m back guys! It’s been a while since I’ve last published a blog. I’ve honestly missed it so much. The last few months I’ve been all about my thesis. I did my thesis for Balmain Paris Hair Couture and honestly, I’m obsessed with their products ever since. You should definitely try it. Thankfully, I’ve handed in my thesis last Sunday so now I have way more free time! YAY. So I’ve been thinking of what to write for a while now and I couldn’t think of a better topic than the Gucci Marmont Belt. It’s my favorite purchase ever and literally worth every penny you spend on it.
So let’s jump straight into the price. It’s $350 (270 euros), yes I know this sounds like a lot especially for a belt, but believe me, it’s the best investment ever. I’m not even kidding. You can wear it with every outfit you want, it looks cute on a jeans, dress or skirt. I personally feel like the smallest version is the cutest one, as it is a little bit more subtle. The belt comes in a cute box with a dust bag as well. I’d definitely recommend to put the belt back in the dust bag all the time. If you do this, the leather and buckle will stay pretty for a very long time. Mine looks as if it’s brand new even though I have it for around 1.5 years now I think.
So let’s dive into the details. The double G buckle obviously is the centerpiece of the belt. It definitely draws attention to it but not in a ‘in your face’ way. This belt has the same antique gold finishing as the Marmont bags. Matching this belt with my Marmont Bag is the best thing! I love this type of gold as it is less flashy. The width of the small belt is 2 centimeters. This one particularly is perfect to wear on your waist. It furthermore comes in 4 different colors: black, dusty pink, brown and white. At first I wanted the dusty pink one cause it’s just way too cute. But the black one is easier as you can wear it with any other color. Gucci also offers the belt in other designs. For example, they also have the belt with small pearls on the buckle. I literally almost bought it but then I was like, girl calm down, you already have one. 😦
Have you been debating about getting a Gucci belt? I would say, go for it! Yes, it’s a pricy belt but hello, how can you say no to this cutie? One last tip, make sure to buy it in the store, as the sizes can be tricky to work with.
Which one would you like more; the original belt or the belt with pearls? Let me know!
Karl Lagerfeld is one of the most celebrated designers of the 21st century.
Karl Lagerfeld is a fashion icon that I think everyone knows or surely has heard off. He’s known for his cutting-edge and somewhat different approach to fashion. What I admire most about him, is the fact that next to his own signature brand, he is also the creative director of Chanel and Fendi. Like how is that even humanly possible right? Many fashion gurus therefore see him as one of the most celebrated designers of the 21st century. Karl Lagerfeld, the signature brand, its aesthetic combines timeless classics with a modern, fun (somewhat cheeky) twist. What I love about this brand is that the ready-to-wear collections are rather affordable. For the relatively low price points, you’re getting perfect quality.
The K/Klassik shoulder bag is one of the most popular bags of the fashion house. This design is sold out quite a lot, but that’s simply because the bag is so functional yet super stylish! The silhouette of this bag perfectly combines style and function. I personally feel like every woman should own at least one Karl Lagerfeld bag!
The K/Klassik shoulder bag comes in many designs. There are always the leather, more basic designs and then there are the limited editions that are featured once in a while. My bag is a limited edition, namely the Holiday Shoulder Bag. I wouldn’t necessarily buy the basic K/Klassik, but the boldly reimagined design of my bag is something I simply cannot resist! The KARL signature in stitched shearling was an absolute deal breaker. How can you not love that detail? I think it gives something extra to the design for sure!
This beauty features a foldover front flap, a top handle and a detachable leather strap. This offers versatility as you can wear this bag in multiple ways. Wear it as a crossbody, or simply wear it over your shoulder when you’re on the go. But you can also detach the strap and wear the bag by holding the top handle. This will create a more sophisticated and chicer look. This makes the bag perfect for day and night activities. The bag is furthermore super practical, as mentioned before. This is one of the largest crossbodies I own, you can truly put a lot in it! The interior furthermore features a slot pocket, a front panel pocket and on the back, there is a pocket as well. Super handy right!
Would you go for the K/Klassik or would you rather prefer a limited edition?

I wore this outfit when I had a school day and on our way to school, we stumbled upon this amazing wall in the ‘Witte de Withstraat’. This wall obviously screams take a picture in front of me, right? So, we did. My outfit matched pretty well with the background as this was really colorful and my outfit was quite lacking some color. So it couldn’t be any more perfect! Right now you might be thinking, does this girl own anything colorful? Believe me, I do! Only not that much ;). It’s still a work in progress as I had a severe addiction to black clothing. But I enjoy wearing colorful items more and more.
I really love checked prints so this blazer is definitely one of my favorite items ever! You can wear it over basically any outfit and it gives that extra spark instantly. For this outfit, I combined the blazer with a simple black t-shirt and some light-washed jeans. I think that by combining the blazer with these items, the blazer stands out more. And that’s exactly what I want! The boots are amazing in my opinion. I usually don’t like biker boots because of their rough appearance but thanks to the pearls I find these boots way more feminine, which I love! And BTW, they fit like a glove… I can walk hours on these boots. I was feeling like wearing my Karl Lagerfeld bag today. I’ve had this bag for more than two years now, but I never get bored of this cutie. It matches super easily with outfits and I can put a lot in it as well!
