YSL Cage Belt

Yves Saint Laurent Leather Cage Belt, for pre-order for $495 at Saks

An avid belt collector, I've come to realize that a single, strategic accent around the waist can do wonders for an otherwise standard outfit. Some of my all-time favorite belts include Burberry Prorsum's medallion-studded belt, Fendi's grayish-brown snakeskin and semi-precious gems belt, and Luca Luca's black stingray one. YSL's current Resort gold (or silver) animal-effect belt (it resembles a snake's scales) and this cage belt are my top two contenders for Spring. Paired with a lighter-hued background, the belt pops. I'm also seriously considering purchasing the bootie or pump version, seen below:

It's fierce!

Love the architectural look of the cage accessories. My one caveat would be making sure that the foot looked attractive inside the boot--without spilling out of any of those little squares . . .

Yes it is. Although the shoes are a little too fierce for my liking the belt.. yes I would like that.

I just want to say how much I love the belt. Especially with those cage shoes you posted about not to long ago. I think this belt would be an amazing addition to most wardrobes. The shoes, on the other hand, are a little to fierce for me as well
