Best Bets Daily: Thursday

Belt it Out

Posted August 25, 2005
I love fall, and I really love fall fashion. The best day of the year is the first day I can throw on a little cashmere sweater and be on my way. One of my favorite places to buy inexpensive knits is Banana Republic, but on a recent trip to the store, I was distracted by—of all things—a belt. Now, I have no waist to speak of and look awful in belted coats, belted sweaters, belted anything. But this one caught my eye because it is black (or taupe, shown here) and bejeweled with chunky gems, and is thankfully cut for low-rise jeans (read: larger than usual). This picture really doesn’t do the product justice, so check it out live.
