You, vain? Nevaaah.
Sure, you check yourself out in store windows. You steal the odd side-glance in your friends’ mirrored shades. And you step into dressing rooms when you’ve got nothing to try on.
Okay. So maybe it’s time to rethink your relationship with reflective surfaces.
Start with one of Jacqueline Rose’s belts, which put mirrors to use in an unexpected way: The buckles are made from one-of-a-kind vintage compacts, which give each Italian-leather belt a different look. Designs come in round, square, bejeweled, and engraved versions — and each is a retro work of art.
Not only that, they’ll test your will: It’s impossible to sneak a peek in one of these mirrors without taking off the belt.
And it’s best not to get caught with your pants down.
