Spotted these delightful floral belt buckles from Peachy Belts, which is a website run by the lovely Zoe Gibson. However there is one serious problem. How on earth do you choose between them? They are all so gorgeous! Zoe is a perennial jeans wearer (my sort of woman!) which is why, in 2005, she decided to create some jeans’ belts for discerning women just like all you CountryWives.
Quality is her byword. Here’s what Zoe has to say about her products: “I wanted to create a range that was really desirable and luscious in lovely materials – products that you immediately want to wear and make you feel good – I hope I have achieved this with my belts. I am uncompromising in my selection of the finest Italian vegetable tanned leathers which are nubuck lined and stitched to ensure they keep their shape and do not stretch. All belts are handmade in England which ensures the highest level of craftsmanship and that will last and give pleasure to the wearer for many years.”
Well we agree that they are the perfect way of dressing up your jeans – especially these new hand decorated ceramic and pewter floral buckles which accessorise current fashion trends perfectly. Every buckle design is comfortable to wear and does not, for example, poke you in the stomach when you bend over. Detaching the buckle is extremely easy as you just unsnap two poppers and thread it off – so it’s quick and simple to do in the morning if, for example, you are wearing gold jewellery and want a gold buckle to work with it. So you can mix and match these versatile belts and buckles according to whatever outfit you happen to be wearing.
“Your belt is stunning! I love it and it fits perfectly. What a beautiful collection you have!”
Sian Lloyd, Weather Presenter
“The quality of my Peachy Belt is absolutely top drawer. I love the choice of colours and fabrics in the range, and the fact that I can change the buckle if I fancy.“
Vicki Butler-Henderson, TV Presenter, Fifth Gear
Anthea Turner, Suzi Perry and equestrians Pippa Funnell and Mary King, are all fans of Peachy.
