Read on to learn more about the fun and fashionable offerings by locally based EllaBelle Creations, as well as how to win a leather or suede embellished belt from EllaBelle Creations (entry closes February 7):

From Jennifer:

Every year, after holiday festivities wind down and the gray cold of the season settles in, I always get a MAJOR case of the winter blues. And so does my closet. The thrill of snuggly sweaters, creative layering, and boots starts to subside and I start to look for ways to infuse a little fun into my winter wardrobe.

I recently found such fun through Boston-area accessories maven Pamela Thomas, founder of EllaBelle Creations. Pamela offers great handcrafted accessories including belts, headbands, and pendants. I'm particularly fond of her new (and dare I say wicked cool) leather and suede belts that are adorned with funky buckles made of fabric, gemstones, and animal prints. I recently snagged the adorable brown suede belt embellished with a little topaz bling (pictured). The belt lifted both my outfit and my spirits!

EllaBelle is available through local craft fair events, but you can also host a trunk show or shop online.
