Wristy Business (See Jane Surrender)

Bracelets aren't really my thing.  It's nothing personal--in fact, I'd like them to be my thing.  Alas, I was born with freakishly small wrists that have always made me a little self-conscious.  I'm completely convinced that no matter how large I may ever get, my wrists will stay the same size as a gangly, seven year old boy's.

Fortunately, I've done some growing up in the past few years.  Case in point: although I'm painfully aware of my wrist situation, I bought a watch and wear it nearly every day (this was, of course, after I dealt with the fact that the Saks salesperson laughed in my face after hearing that they had to remove eight links for me).  N'importe, it's time for me to move onto bracelets.

I think I'd leave this bracelet on until the first signs of fall.

I love big bangles.  I just wish they didn't go up to my elbow.

By the way, have you ever visited for jewelry?  They have silver bangles and leather wrap bracelets for unreal prices.  I started my bracelet hunt there and think I'll come away with some very cool finds.  Here are a few I'm eyeing:

Soon, I'll be wearing bracelets just like the rest of you--including the several hair ties I wear on my wrist!
