Many customers come in the store looking for that perfect dress… or two… or three. However, what really transforms an outfit into a look is found in the details. That’s right – accessorizing. Accessorizing is an art that adds your own personal touch and makes any outfit YOUR look. While we often get caught up in necklaces and bracelets, we often miss the most obvious of all transformative pieces:BELTS!

And what better pairs with vintage-inspired clothing than vintage-inspired belts? Sounds like a match made in Trashy Diva heaven to me! Introducing Raina Belts, an industry leader in luxury belts hand-crafted with vintage clasps and genuine leather. Skip the statement necklaces, ladies, because “it’s jewelry for the waist!” Raina began selling her local designs door-to-door at age 22 in Los Angeles. Today, Raina Belts is an internationally acclaimed brand spotted in Vogue, Elle, and on celebrities everywhere.

With so much variety to choose from, there’s the perfect Raina belt out there for every Trashy Diva look. So I’m bringing you my top 5 Raina Belts, complete with styling ideas from the fellow Divas!



1. Up first is lovely Diva Brooke. Adorned in the romantic long L’amour Dress, Brooke is seen here in the Raina “Secret Garden” Belt — an all leather belt with a black cabochon and gold filigree clasp.

It adds a modern touch that maintains the romance of the dress!


2. Bringing it to our Uptown store manager and stylist extraordinaire, it’s Diva Kaci! I love the black rayon L’amour dress because it’s like a blank canvas.

For this look, Diva Kaci channeled a little ‘American Hustle’ with the ‘the Croco’ belt. Paired with a bright hair flower, it’s 40s does 70s!


3. Next up we have Diva Ilana. She’s rocking our Honey Sun Dress in Seersucker. Naturally, we paired this classic summer favorite with something a little playful and seasonally appropriate – the ‘Sally Shell’ rope belt!

This belt features a trio of seashells that are authentic, re-purposed vintage components. It also pairs perfectly with Deep Sea Coral!


4. You may also recognize this beauty from the Uptown Shoe and Dress store. Diva Rachel is looking sweet in the Hepburn Romper in Cactus Rouge.

We paired the Raina ‘Nantucket’ belt in honey with this look. Shining gold accents give it this fun romper a classy finish!


5. And lastly, it’s our designated Uptown Shoe Diva Stephanie. Stephanie is rocking the red Trixie Top and Chambray Circle Skirt for summer with the Raina “Sunset” belt.

It’s fully adjustable, and check out how stunning that vintage clasp is!
