The Rose Menagerie Dress.
It’s been one of your eternal questions for some time now, right up there with “What is the meaning of life?” and “Coke or Pepsi?” – what is this term “self-belt” that they sometimes use in product descriptions on ModCloth?
Well happily for you, this is one undying question that has an easy answer. A self-belt is a belt composed of the same material as that of the dress it comes with, and it’s a term that harks back to 1960, a time when dresses with matching belts had been de rigeur for several years. For a visual representation of this decorous detail, check out the Rose Menagerie Dress (seen above), I See a Coat of Blue, and the Avocado Orchard Dress. Ah, there, doesn’t your mind feel at ease now?
Do you like self-belts, or do you prefer to mix and match?
