i love the new trend of stacking friendship bracelets. wearing multiple bracelets is a great conversation starter; each bracelet oftentimes tells a story greater than what meets the eye. one bracelet can signify a time, a reason and a place of where it was received. i remember being a little girl and finding a bracelet under the christmas tree. with the name “barbara” on it, i knew i could never part with this bracelet, though there were few times i felt I had grown out of it for a fleeting moment. as a gift from my parents (my sister received a matching one with her name), it was too meaningful to me. recently, my 5 year old nephew made me a friendship bracelet (made of green yarn above). i think of him every time i wear it. of course, i’ve added new bracelets and if you’re in the market to expand your collection, here are a few suggestions:
1. target <$5+> more options in-store than online
2. athropologie <$15+>
3. jcrew <$18+> more options in-store than online
4. gorjana <$35+>
5. frieda and nellie <$130+>
next time you “stack” a bracelet, think about the time and place in which you received it. it’s sure to bring back fond memories!
outfit post to come soon!
Love the bracelets you have pictured above!
thank you so very much!
