White House Black Market: Patent Waist Cincher
A reader asked where she could find a nice cheap patent leather waist cincher. She lives in the UK. Well, I wished you lived in the A because I would be more than happy to have an outing with you and take you to all my favorite spots here. Patent leather, hmmm…. I had seen a multitude of patent leather skinny belts, but not any waist cinchers that I can recall. I did a little research; and I didn’t mind; I love a challenge. My search returned with the expected results, all of the couture houses had cinchers, but not in a $50 budget. I saw a lovely Yves Saint Laurent in red patent; a Giuseppe Zanotti pastel mix for $333.19; a Burberry Prosum lime green for $495.00; a classic Alexander McQueen on sale for $588.00; and the most fabulous, a Suzi Roher leopard print patent for $295.00. To add insult to injury, the more affordable cinchers were costumey, reminiscent of Halloween, and not G rated costumes either. The key to pulling off a patent waist cincher is to make sure the rest of the outfit is clean and perhaps on the dressier side.
The last man standing: White House Black Market (MIL’s favorite) has a lovely black patent, in limited quantities, selling for $58.00. And White House ships to the UK. International shipping is $30.00 per order and subject to import duties and taxes. I wish that I could provide you with more options, just keep your eyes open at online sites such as Asos and Ebay.Uk. If the White House Black market option doesn’t satisfy.
