Daylight Robbery? Borba Margo Organza Belt

Even although we can’t claim to have ever found ourselves thinking, “Damn, if only someone would attach a flimsy organza peplum-type affair to an ordinary leather belt!”, we have no real quarrel with the appearance of this item. Not even in a stuck-together-clothes sense.

No, our quarrel – or rather, our confusion – is with the price. $445 for a belt? Seriously? Is the organza shot through with threads of gold, perhaps? Couldn’t you just, you know, attach a piece of fabric to ANY old belt, if you wanted this particular look? Or is there a particular reason why you’d need to pay $445 for this one? Your call, readers. Your call.

    I reckon this is another one of those “how much can we rip people off” games, and expect to see more ridiculously over-priced simple / easy to make belts. Can’t wait for the belt with tie fastening made as a strip of platted together bits of spare fabric: “Every one is unique, you know!”

    Daylight robbery. Without a doubt. Even if it wasn’t quite that ugly (missing the skirt thingy), it’d STILL be daylight robbery.

    This is not meant to be a belt. It’s meant to be worn as the only piece a woman would wear. It’s actual harem gear, designed for actual middle eastern harems. That’s what the price is telling.

    Does the belt come with a diamond ring?
