Daddy's Little Belt Buckle
This belt buckle is one of my absolute favorite accessories hands down. I’ve got the LV shopper tote, Morgenthal Frederics shades, jewelry from across the globe but they don’t even compare. In fact, I don’t know or care who designed my belt buckle. The peanut butter color is super cool and it looks right-on with all things denim. But the real reason I am so fond of it? The belt buckle belonged to my deceased father. I have a few of his personal belongings (a distressed leather wallet with whip stitching is another fave) but I am probably closest to this because my father and I share the same initials.
My dad was a "man’s man" and maintained a simple but well-edited wardrobe. We both loved one-of-a-kind accessories. I’m sure he had no idea that his adult daughter would be rocking this buckle when he purchased it. It isn’t exactly the typical family heirloom and one might suspect that my older brother would be the likely current owner. His initials happen to be B.B. as well but doggone it I got hold of it first. Now, I simply cannot imagine my wardrobe without it.
P.S. - The actual belt did not belong to my father but it is a near perfect match, no? What is your favorite accessory and why?
