Strapped Belts Review and Giveaway

Remember when last month when I was talking about the Olympics and a cool company called Strapped Belts? Here is a review and a wonderful giveaway about the man/company behind the belts and the one who got to meet the Alpine skiers.

I haven't owned a belt since I was a kid. So when I received the offer to review belts by Strapped Belts I was skeptical. How cool could belts be?

Pretty cool huh?

John Frechette started Strapped Belts, a fused glass product store in 2008. He doesn't just make belt buckles, he also makes earrings, cufflinks and some REALLY cool plates that I'm diggin' on!

I got this funky belt and was excited to try it on, it was a perfect fit, the leather is strong and sturdy, and the vibrant colors of the belt buckle are not just cool to look at, but just as strong. Oh.. and I won't look at you weird if you go out and get a shirt to match. I'm just sayin'.. I got this TOTALLY cute orange shirt to match this belt.. I couldn't help it, it called out to me.

Yes, glass can break. And I am a clumsy mess. (I'm not scared to admit it)

Have I broken it? NOPE! I know.. shocker, I am always tossing things around and my pants are not safe, I've had the buckle clink against the ground followed by a grimace by me. It still did NOT break!
I'm not gonna test the theory of the strength of these, but I will totally say they are "Suzanne Proof". That is a huge stamp of approval.

If you are looking at the other products that Strapped Belts have, I can say the earrings are great. They are sturdy, a perfect weight and the base of the earring is so funky cool. I got these earrings and have gotten a ton of compliments on them.

So, What's in it for you? That's all you care about right?
Okay.. I get it.. enough teasing.

How about one free belt/buckle and shipping?
Now I gotcha listening!

I am totally the kind of person who would go out and buy a shirt to match a cool belt like this!

Too many choices... I think the Cyan Blue with Three Flowers and the Dog Buckle are my favorites. :)
