Heather's Couture Corner: Desginer Men's Belts at

| BY Heather Kiely

 This week, I sat down with Maria Cronin, designer and founder of My Hip Threads. Maria has been in the custom belt business for over eight years and has focused mainly on belts for women and children. We will be previewing the women's collection coming later this spring, but our discussion was focused more on her new line of men's belts. What is so special about My Hip Thread is the high quality product you are getting at a wholesale price.

Until recently, Maria has sold her belts in upscale boutiques throughout the country. Now she is offering them to the buyer directly at incredibly low prices; $25 for the buckle and $25 for the Italian leather belt! The men's fashion collection is amazing because Maria uses real skins: Rattle Snake, Alligator, Painted Cobra, Cowhides; and her leather belts are from the same source in New York that high end furniture designers use. ( They come in these HUGE hides and the snakes….. ya, his head is still attached!!! )

You can find Maria's whole collection at or at ETSY HipThreadsBelts. Also stop by Millionaire Corner to see the sit down interview with Maria coming soon! Men you are going to love Maria's belts so check them out and pick out your new belt today! Ladies, stayed tuned for my next sit down with Maria to launch her Spring 2014 line! I'm Heather reporting from Millionaire Corner reminding you to keep your investments where you can see them; in your closet, of course!
