Currently loving: leather cuff bracelets

17 Nov

So this is a post I’ve had “in storage” for a while and kind of forgot about, but thing about being in Austin and returning to my old stomping grounds of South Congress made me remember that I hadn’t shared this with y’all yet! Ye olde Cream Vintage on SoCo was purchased by Leighelena a a while back, and in addition to their fabulous vintage, the store now features exclusive pieces from Leighelena’s South Austin jewelry studio. This of course includes her jigsaw cuff bracelets, which have been seen on celebs and in fashion mags ever since the arm candy trend began. The best part about picking one out from the store (as opposed to online) is that the shop staff will help you trade out prints and clasp colors, as well as cut one of the leather bracelets specifically for your wrist size. I picked one out for my birthday when I was here for spring break, and my experience was fantastic!

The nice sales lady switching out a clasp for me

I have extremely small wrists so they were even willing to cut the leather (scary!!) and trim it down to fit snugly on my arm

The final product! Picture taken outside of the crepe trailer on SoCo (obvi.)

What do you think of cuff bracelets? You can check out Leighelena’s website for even more of her stuff, be forewarned though… you’re going to want it all. Continue reading

Hand Candy (outfit post)

3 Aug

Zara top, Martin + Osa belt, Abercrombie & Fitch shorts

You’re Invited!…. to the arm party, that is. Today’s Bloggers Do It Better challenge was all about eye candy for the arm. Here’s a little summer outfit I put together to showcase some of my favorite bangles, bracelets, and rings. Welcome to the wrist fiesta :)

From left to right: Target bangle, Charming Charlie stretch bracelet, Sam Moon bangle, Leighelena jigsaw clasp leather cuff

Middle finger: vintage initials from my mom, Index finger: Pearl ring from Armadillo Art Bazaar

From left to right: Rhinestone peace sign and leather wrap bracelet given by my boyfriend's cousin, vintage tennis bracelet handed down from Nana

Index finger: vintage onyx and diamond, Ring finger: vintage from Great Auntie

True story: I was going to wear some adorable gold sandals with this outfit but I accidentally packed them before realizing I hadn't taken these pictures yet. Only further proving that fashion bloggers are far more imperfect than perfect :)

Which ones are your favorite? What do you like to layer?

Bisous,

Rachel
