Sometimes, a single, statement accessory can anchor an entire outfit (pardon the pun - I couldn't help myself). This wide-leather nautical-inspired belt is just such a piece. I first saw this belt several years ago in a Boston Proper catalog, but with a price tag of $179.00, I added it to my "mental wish list"and periodically checked the store's website to see if the price had been reduced. To my disappointment, it disappeared from stock with nary a discount. I was reminded of it this spring while reading a magazine article about nautical style and decided to search eBay on a whim. Imagine my delight to find the very same belt, in like-new condition, for $21 with free shipping! Classic nautical looks are always in style, and I expect I'll get far more than my money's worth over the next several years. I've worn it a few different ways already, and I couldn't resist sporting the classic red, white and blue color scheme in early July.
