...and charm they do! I happened upon this shop via Tumblr, where someone posted this beauty, shown above. The shop specializes in tooled leather belts that feature designs with a retro or vintage feel. A bit of digging brought me to their blog, which features pictures of custom pieces, celebrity sightings wearing their work, and some crazy eyecandy. Here are a few examples:
Am I the only one who's going crazy over these designs?! And, pricewise, they're not as bad as I was expecting. Considering these are all custom-sized, the $80-or-so is really not out of the question. Maybe someday!
