Belt Converter

When I was in London last weekend I remembered that Asprey the jewellers make leather belt converter for scarves. So I went to the shop and although they did not have many left, I managed to get a lovely one in pink ostrich leather.  I found using a 90cm Hermes scarf was too big so it fits better for me with the 70cm vintage size scarves.  I think I will get a lot more use out of scarves with this handy gadget!!

Asprey's corporate colour is purple-including the ink in the pen to sign your bill with!

A silver coloured buckle finishes the look.
I have attached my Kelly en Caleche 70cm vintage scarf to the leather belt ends.  There is a bit of a knack to tying the scarf on, but once you get it, it works well.

Worn to the front, but the belt will look equally good with the converter to the back.

Now I am looking forward to seeing the new design for the next season!  I have to say the SA was a dream in Aspreys so I won't be shy to go in there again :-)


  1. Thats very chic!
    Love how this looks especially on your tiny waist...lucky you.

  5. How nice Scarf Addict. Congrats... love the belt and the scarf together. Plus, it's hard not to love all things Asprey... I always enjoy stopping by and reading about your latest adventures and purchases. (BTW, I hope the ducks are still doing well)

  6. Beautiful idea! congratulations.

  7. Hello SMR!! Thank you so much - I am busy with lots of trips to London at the moment as the Russian ballet season is keeping me occupied!
    Oh the ducklings!! They have all flown away and my sister misses them so much, but we have a drought and the pond dried out so they lost their home poor things! Last that we know is that the first family 7 out of 10 survived and the second family 2 out of 4 survived. Thanks for asking about them!

  8. Hello Birkinmary - glad you like it! I am looking forward to seeing the AW10 design.
