Splurge vs Steal: Gold Bar Belts


I think I may have spent the best $17.95 (plus tax) I have ever spent. Here's the story...

I've been searching desperately for a gold belt. I've had my eye on this Tory Burch one but am still waiting until Nordies has triple or 10x points to buy it (a couple more Nordies notes won't hurt either).

I have also been loving this St John's version for who knows how long. As much as I adore it, spending a lot of money on a belt that is not an everyday belt is not really for me. Purses, I totally get, but not belts. Because of this, I have been actively looking for copycat versions for MONTHS now.

And then I saw it...just hanging out among the mess of belts during a quick stop in H&M a couple weeks ago. It flashed at me - literally, there was an actual flash. Here it was...a knock off of my precious St John belt for about $150 less!


In about 10 seconds total, I had the belt in hand and was in line to make sure no one else got it. I am not afraid to admit that I have been living in it ever since. It makes me feel like a superhero with special powers. I once wore it around the house with sweats and I swear I could have totally gone to a black tie event or gone out and saved the world. I love, love, love this belt! And for less than $18...how can you not!

Here's how I wore it over the weekend...

TB gold belt...I am still holding out for you. Hang in there...I will buy you soon enough. Unless H&M gets a similar version...then you are out of luck, my friend!

Would you wear a gold bar belt? What knockoffs have you found recently??

  11. Gold's criticalness in world markets make COMEX Division gold prospects and choices a vital hazard administration apparatus for business administrators. Merchants watch Comex contracts as a marker of bubble in the market.the iragoldadvisor
