I’ve been taken, recently, with delicate, beautiful charm bracelets.
Let’s face it – cuffs have been a huge thing for ages, and I’m ready to turn them all in, in exchange for something prettier, something lighter, and something a little less flashy. Of course, I’m looking for uniqueness and substance, and I feel like there are a lot of really lovely options for arm candy, with these charming little charm bracelets. After scouring the Topshop website, I found a few that caught my eye.
Or is it … my EVIL EYE?!?!?
Evil eye – you see what I did there? I love the look of the delicate chain and the little evil eye, encrusted with gems. This little gem might be that spot-on finishing touch that perfects an ensemble – taking it from boring to brilliant in an instant. And it’s a little bit of a trompe à l’oeil, don’t you think? The little stones don’t mean anything until you take a closer look – and that’s when you realize, it might be watching you…
There are so many reasons this is so good… fresh approach to organic contrast indeed! The little serpent is punctuated by a tiny diamond eye. Ever since I purchased my Cleves swan ring from Wendy Brandes, I’ve been obsessed with tiny animals with gem-eyes. I love how delicate the little chain is, and let’s face it, serpent jewelry has been cool since Cleopatra. There’s something delicately seductive in a tiny gold chain around your tiny wrists with a little flash of sparkle…
Pretty! Imagine getting one of these in your stockings (Are we too far away from Christmas for me to start my Christmas list?) from your loverboy. I like the delicate cursive lettering. I LOVE the little ruby in the corner of the heart. I love the rose-gold, which is almost more shocking (while still being much less shocking) than yellow gold. They’re super chic – the new answer to the ol’ “tennis bracelet” gift. Okay, let’s not kid ourselves – tennis bracelets are swanky chic. But still! Who can afford one? Gentlemen, this is much more likely to garner a smooch without breaking your piggy bank.
And for that slightly mysterious witchy-poo… a delicate trinket with attitude and edge:
If there’s any model out there with effortless cool (Is it really effortless? Well she sure looks like it!) it’s Erin Wasson. This is definitely a piece I’d pick up for it’s cool attitude, and it still looks light, and delicate. It’d look great with your boho arm-party (thanks Manrepeller!) – wait, isn’t an arm-party strictly boho anyhow? Clichés aside, this crystal sh!t is unique and sort of mysteriously witchy. (Also thanks to Manrepeller – this skull bracelet is dainty, edgy and totally rad!)
I’m over the oversized bangles – which always end up wedged down around my thumbs, inabling the use of my hands. I’m ready for some seriously pretty, dainty pieces, layer-over-layer, creating a chic, sleek, ultra-svelte look.
How ’bout you, readers?
