When I woke up yesterday morning I had visions of Moschino adverts - black outfits, gold accessories and big hair firmly engraved in my mind. I always dream, and usually it's fashion, creations, locations, outfits and tons more complete nonsense. The outfit dreams usually happen on waking- I sleep with a book by my bed and often end up writing down concoctions... does anyone else do this?
The Moschino belt found it's way to me sometime early last year- I gave up searching belts as bids went crazy, and searched for genuine Moschino bags. I stumbled upon a wardrobe sort out of old designer clothes and a rather miserable, extremely worn- white (now turning grey) Moschino bag. After emailing the seller for measurements, and extra photos I discovered the letters would fit perfectly on a belt- the M and O have screws to fix them in place, while the other letters float around. The bag arrived- I hacked off the strap holding the letters- unscrewed and added to a vintage belt- et voila! £17.00 for genuine vintage Moschino!
I always feel a bit 1980's wearing it.. not my favourite era but after my dream it felt right!
