50's & an improvised belt - grandma skirt #2

So the deal with these is... I have so many beautiful skirts from grandma that are either too long, or too large, etc. , and I do not want to modify them just yet. I mean I will cut into them eventually, but before that, I want to get as much wear as I can out of them as they are.
If my previous grandma skirt was kind of shifted into the 20's , with the low waist marked by the belt & (fake) pearl necklace, today's one reflects one of my interpretations of the 50's.

The belt you see in these images is actually something I improvised, out of a cross-body bag strap and some ribbon I had at hand. It turned out pretty nice, I think...And it took just half a minute to make :)))). If only fashion were this easy :D.

Dress: grandma skirt #2
Belt: improvised
Wedges: Charlotte Ronson
Beads: handmedown from grandma
Earrings: Debenhams (gift from my bf :D)

Here's a close up of the belt :

And some close-ups of me :))):
