What Are Bender Buckles?

Do you remember my killer chevron belt from Monday? Here's a visual reminder...

I had a few people ask what Bender Buckles were, so today I'm going to show you. They're interchangeable magnetic belt buckles... and since that doesn't seem to click with a lot of people, I have a visual instruction guide. See below!

Bender Buckle Tutorial

Here are the steps for putting together a Bender Buckle belt:
  1. Order the 3 separate pieces needed to make your belt—the leather strap (comes in white, black and brown), the magnetic base buckle and the magnetic buckle face of your choice.
  2. Insert the base buckle into the leather strap.
  3. Snap on your interchangeable buckle face.
  4. Rock a Bender Buckle belt... and change them up with the different buckle faces to match your outfit!
My favorite part about this product is the versatility. I can choose different leather straps to match my outfits, and there are over 90 different buckle faces in their selection. In my photos, I'm wearing the wooden chevron face, and their white lizard and rhinestone rainbow flower buckles are on my wish list! (UPDATE: Just bought the rhinestone one. It goes with everything!)

Such a great idea with the belt! Love that it's interchangeable. You waist a lot less space!

Me too! It's not dinky and my favorite part is that it doesn't budge on the magnet. It's on there GOOD!

Annelise Rowe said...

No kidding! I already have 2 buckles (just ordered my 2nd) and I could see myself having a little box of buckles without all the hassle of the belt straps everywhere!

What an awesome idea!

Annelise Rowe said...

I'm so glad you think so! The creator, Vikki, is a chemical engineer who moved here a little bit ago with her husband in the National Guard and wasn't able to find a big market for her job skills. So she created this instead. How awesome, huh?

Love this. Such a simple idea but changes up everything! =)


Daniela M❤ said...

Great Idea!!! and I love the entire outfit ! :)


Annelise Rowe said...

Thanks, Nancy! I know... it's very simple. But the idea behind it is so great. It's amazing how one little detail can totally alter an outfit. I mean, without that belt, there would be no focal point. It's such a statement piece :)

Annelise Rowe said...

Thanks Daniela! It's my favorite outfit of the moment. :)
