I once read an article in Glamour magazine that stated "Never wear a dress with the belt it came with." Let me just say, I completely disagree. In many cases, I switch out the pre-designated belt for one of my, but more often than not I just stick with the original. The same cannot be said for my shoelaces. In the instances when one should be asking, "What would I wear with these shoes," I am asking "What shoelaces should I use instead." Usually, I replace my actual shoelaces with colorful ribbons for a more creative and unique look because a lot of times, an original is better than the original.
