Rated 1 out of 5Â by piratejacques Poor quality, not as pictured
I really love FP clothes, but unfortunately this belt is not quite up to par. I ordered a total of four of these, hoping to get one that looked as nice as the one pictured, but to no avail. All of the belts I received did not have the nice braided tie with tassels. The ties were just cloth sewn in half length-wise and cut off at the ends. Also, they did not have the nice inlaid glass like in the picture; rather, they were painted over and some paint was even outside of the lines. The number of metal pieces on the belt in the picture has over 20 per half. Mine had anywhere from just 12 to at most 18, per half. I found the workmanship to be of poor quality. The width of the belt was inconsistent and material stuck out here and there, improperly sewn. There were a lot of threads hanging out. Some of the metal pieces were not fully sewn on and I was afraid they could break off. Also, there was a lot of sand on the belts and in the bags they came in, so it's kinda messy when you first open the ziploc bag. I really wanted to love this belt as it looks so great in the picture, but I will be returning all four of them, as I do not feel they are worth the price I paid. I understand that "not every belt will be exactly as shown" but the differences in quality were too much for me. I would recommend trying to find these in a store if you can, if you really want to get one.

I bought this belt despite the iffy reviews because I was looking for a simple yet elegant design. I received the belt today. It is a nice belt but that is all. The black velvet base is really lovely, but there are no tassels to tie the belt, just a cloth stitched roughly. The bells are fine and they hold without falling off, but the design is slightly rough and ready. Not the greatest of buys, but I bought it at the sale price and it would be too much effort to return it. So I will be keeping it. But would be more careful of buying belts online.

I got this belt on sale at the local FP store. The base is black velvet. The belt is the same as pictured, except the ties are very basic. I am going to wear the belt with FP flare jeans.

Like the last reviews said... The tassels fall off so easily. I am already missing 2 and I got it today! Maybe there is a way to thread them on more securely. I will try because it is a cool looking belt.

Pretty, but to delicate. Would not thread it through jeans, it might fall apart. Mine came without tassels, bummer.
