A co-worker that I'm flying with today fancies herself quite the fashion expert. She brings an extra suitcase and garment bag along for her extensive wardrobe, even if it's just a two-day trip.
On the layover, she is always immaculated coiffed, made up, and dressed. Some would claim, over-dressed, but I guess that's just a matter of opinion.
She's high maintenance and I love her dearly. She doesn't impose her standards on anyone else, although I seen a shudder go through her at a perceived fashion faux pas.
Since I'll be flying with her again during the holidays, I'm considering bringing her a fashion Christmas gift: a Sky Belt.
The Skybelt is a belt made out of colored webbing, and the buckle consists of old airplane seat belt buckles. The company was started by a former flight attendant as a way to earn some extra money for a family vacation. The line now features interchangeable colored belts, and clip on designs, and is available through online ordering. There is also a list of retail locations.
The first Sky Belt purchase is $32.95, and additional belts are $10.95, although currently there appears to be a sale going on. Clip ons to personalize your belt design are $4.95.
While this may not be an appropriate fashion gift for my co-worker, it's a fun fashion statement.
