Rated 4 out of 5 by brie Nearly perfect belt
Love this belt -- it's beautifully made and looks wonderful in person (and matches the color of the Maneula gown perfectly). The only downside is that the jeweled part stops about 2 inches from the end of the belt on either side, so when you wear it there's a blank spot about 4 inches wide in the back (or wherever you choose to put the hooks/seam). I was super disappointed about this, but at the suggestion of a brilliant friend I ordered a couple of sizes up and am just going to remove and reattach the hooks (and trim the ends) myself so that there's no gap in the jeweled part at the seam. This is the one thing I would ask/urge J Crew to change about this belt. Otherwise, it's a lovely, very well made belt -- great option for brides who don't want to wear a big bow on the back of their dress in order to get some pretty sparkle at their waist.
