Years ago, J. Crew was stocking an anchor belt that immediately caught my eye. It was the perfect accessory to complement a Newport outfit—crisp against a navy blue flirty skirt, contrasting with comfortable Nantucket reds, chic with a pair of signature white jeans or linen trousers. Before I could make it my own, it was sold out, like “sold out, sold out,” not a one to be found. A few were being price gouged on eBay, but it simply wasn’t the same, and besides, paying threefold seemed fashionably unjust.
I just spotted this fabulous Cape Knot Dock belt at Pink Pineapple and I must say, J. Crew who? Braided nautical rope, a sharp anchor buckle, an affordable $55 price point…lesson learned: don’t let this one get away.
Pink Pineapple is located in Newport and Portsmouth, Rhode Island, the Cape Knot Dock belt is also available online by clicking here. Also available in leather.
