Triangle Love

My husband is right. I really need to start blogging more. I’ve been posting a lot on my Instagram and Facebook (@Bettybelts  follow me!) but not very much at all right here on my very own website. And there is so much to share, to fill you in on.

For starters how about some pretty pictures of some of my new designs? I’ve got a plethora of them in my upcycled surfboard resin collection.

The “Tay” triangle collection is my current favorite. This design is named after Taylor Bruynzeel of Team Betty. Yes, our very own surf team! (I name many of my designs after team riders and other women who inspire me.)

Taylor just turned 17 and she’s quite a talented stepper on the waves. I’ve taken to calling her “Switchstance Tay” because she’s so good at riding both ways and switching stance several times on any given ride. she’s a joy to surf with, always smiling when she glides past you perched on the nose. She’s one to watch! Check out her website and follow her on instagram @taylorbruynzeel .

Betty B. Insider: Spring 2014

If you live in or near Ventura, we are having another exclusive group sale for locals this weekend!


We have a new format this time with new friends joining us for our Spring Sale hosted so generously by our friends Stewart+Brown.
It’s a new kind of studio sale… the Stewart+Brown Makers Market, a community get-together with local designers and small businesses to celebrate local and meet some of the cool people Ventura has to offer (and find some DEEP discounts on organic clothing, Midi-Queen bags and my accessories, of course).
Along with select markdowns I will be bringing out of the shop to offer you at my table, I have a very special gift of STOKE for you, a free belt (see below)! And choose one of three fun ways to get one:

  1. Wear any of my Betty designs you own to the event or put an outfit together on site with what you try on. Post a pic of it on your favorite social media (be sure to tag Betty Belts)
  2. Simply bring a friend along who hasn’t been to one of our sales yet
  3. Buy a belt at the sale, get one free!

Click here to RSVP and see schedule details and know when the food trucks are there. We have local favorite Scratch joining us and rumor has it the new Good To Go (organic) Juice Truck will be there too along with Avogrados Farms organic produce!
