Bracelets on a budget

The other day at work, I was admiring my friend's bracelet from afar.  And all day, I kept forgetting to ask her about it...until we went for post work dinner and wine.  She asked me if it looked familiar and revealed her secret.  The bracelet was in fact a j crew belt that she had purchased a month earlier for an event.  Genius!  She had been wanting to buy a new bracelet and decided to look beyond the counter and back into her closet.  On her other wrist?  A couple $2.50 friendship bracelets from PaperSource that blended ever so nicely with her more expensive bead bracelets.

$2.50 friendship bracelets from paper source

On my other friend's wrist at dinner...a bracelet made from guitar wire. It doesn't get craftier than that.


And so I looked into my closet...loving the skinnny belt doubling as a leather wrap around cuff-like bracelet

What can you find in your closet?

when punk bracelets were in, but were like $49 a pop, I bought extra small belts at Forever 21 for 6.99..whammo, instant cheap awesomeness. I still wear them.
