A Marc Jacobs belt for £1 (yes, really!)
Where does one go for a cheap designer fix in London? Why Marc by Marc Jacobs, of course. With its Special Items range, you can spend hardly anything at all for a piece of Marc Jacobs-branded merchandise. The best buy? These watch-strap belts for the bargain price of just £1 each.
Available in gold, silver and pewter, they're reassuringly good quality with Marc Jacobs discreetly embossed on the reverse of the buckle. And one size fits all (they're exactly like those expandable watch straps, after all!). I overheard a sales assistant telling her colleague that the belts were originally £32. I guess it's a case of old-season stock that they just want to shift (a bit like my £3 Marc Jacobs hat, which had been £34).
Anyway, at less than the price of a Starbucks, it would be rude not to have one in each colour, so hurry before they're all gone!
PS. The giraffe is named Jerry (after Ms Hall) and is the latest card design from Umpen Editions. Cute, isn't she?
