Belts for spring

For those of you who have not seen the spring RTW collections go to the NY Times and have a look.

After some discussion about the grey Vogue dress with the giant bow I was very intrigued to see the exact same belt in Caroline Herrera's spring collection- sort of an Obi with a cord tie. You can see the collection here.

Here is a close-up of the belts, part of this spring's obi revival and very make-it-yourself friendly.
