Because You're Ugly: Cassette Tape Belt Buckles

I still remember the day that I bought my first cassette tape. It was Ace Of Base's "All That She Wants." It became my third grade soundtrack. I listened to it until the tape popped and still mourn its loss.

Nowadays you can hardly find a cassette tape to save your life, but lucky for fans like myself there is a fashionable solution to the tragic end of this musical icon's popularity: the cassette tape belt buckle.

Mostly serving as a flashback to retro '80s style, these over-the-top accessories are the perfect fit for anyone looking to jazz up their wardrobe with a funky musical throwback while simultaneously cinching their pants tighter.

Online accessory store Honorable Mention sells the buckles at $10 to $15 a pop and offers them in several rock n' roll styles including: Blank Cassette Tape, Bobby Brown's Don't Be Cruel, Captain & Tennille's "Love Will Keep Us Together," Flashdance Soundtrack and Hanson's "Mmm Bop" among others. Sadly Ace of Base is not among the buckles offered, but a girl can dream...
