Reach for your wallets!! This is a good one. 😉
Many of you may recognize this highly coveted belt by Hermès:
Often ranging between $700-$1000 – and also usually available for purchase only in person at Hermès stores – this belt and its buckle is a ‘must have’ in most fashionista’s closets. It has been seen on many a celebrity…
but now can be seen on you as well!! How you ask?? Keep reading.
You all know that I love me some fashion, and…I also love me some luxury! That said, I ain’t no fool!! There is no way I am dishing out nearly $1000 for a belt. Perhaps a good, authentic used one on eBay might be an option; though the thought of paying nearly $400 for a used belt makes me cringe. Unless…[cue drum roll please], there happened to be an amazingly similar one for a fraction of the price!
So, being the great researcher I am (wink, wink!), I searched high and low, far and wide, for something that would meet the strict requirements of my fashionably savvy, yet budget-conscious readers. I present you with, the C. Wonder Reversible Leather Letter Belt:
At $28 for the letter buckle and $48 for the reversible leather belt (plus a 10% in-store discount with a student ID), you too can have an Hermès-like belt in your real closet, and not just in your Pinterest closet!! Compare the two belt buckles below:
Pretty similar, right?? You’re welcome, again. 😉
Now, some of you may say, “Well, I feel like I’ll be buying replica”. That’s fine! Don’t stress. C. Wonder carries belt buckles in every single letter of the alphabet! In my case, it just so happens that ‘H’ stands for ‘Hidalgo’ or ‘Hungry’. Usually the latter.
So, my chic friends, there you have it. In my opinion, fashion should be fun and not involve a trip to bankruptcy court. That said, I’ll also say: Let your pocketbook guide you with regard to which option suits you best!
Until next time!
P.S. – Follow me on Instagram to see how I styled the C. Wonder version for a work-appropriate look this week!
