|I couldn’t resist adding a tiny Eiffel Tower. I am an Eiffel Tower nut.|
I bought this pink rhinestone bracelet awhile ago, long enough now that I can’t remember where, exactly, I got it from. I just recall that my mother and I were at Macy’s and saw similar bracelets for $50 or more and after deciding to pass on that price we were able to track down something similar for about $10 each at a shop near Macy’s on Broadway (I think).
I put the bracelet away for a long time because I thought it was too sweet and too pink. Then I came across it recently, put on some Chanel Black Satin nail polish, paired it with my regular Fossil watch, and realized that the black nail and the blue face of the watch help tone down the sugary look of such sparkly pink rhinestones! I love this combination and I’ve been getting a lot of compliments when I wear it this way.
Of course it’s endless kid chores around here so along with the pink bracelet and black nails I’m running around in a pair of Levi’s, a black J. Crew Jackie cardigan with a black longsleeved T-shirt underneath. My son has middle school interviews next week. For admission into New York City public middle schools! I have to prep a 10-year-old boy to go on interviews! I am beginning to understand why lifelong New Yorkers can be so competitive and tough.
I hope the pink sparkle bracelet and black nail polish will help me stay positive. Especially under the foot of snow they are now predicting for all five boroughs!
Have you ever recycled an accessory you already owned just by changing how you wear it?
