I was looking for a belt that would add to my dress, but not be so flashy that it would draw all the attention to it. This fit the bill with just a hint of sparkle with the alternating pearls. I was afraid that this would be too short for a belt (the decorated section is only 14"), but it actually looked good. Only thing I dislike is the fact that the ends of the ribbon have the decoration also - it makes the ends heavy, hard to tie, and they get caught on everything. Great quality and beautiful packaging.
While I do absolutely love this, I decided not to go with a belt at all. Even this simple design ended up being distracting to my overall look. Hopefully mine will find a second home/life with someone else.
