As a teenager, one could catch me heading to Jo-Ann Fabrics for little spools of embroidery thread, which I would attach to the top ring of my binder and weave friendship bracelets for myself and my friends. I had an entire arm full of them and loved them until they fell apart. I have often wondered since…have I outgrown friendship bracelets?
Cut to 2011 and the answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT! Legendary department store Henri Bendel has decided to give all of us an upgrade when it comes to our beloved schooltime favorite and these versions of the friendship bracelet are beautifully, blissfully blinged out. They’re the adult, much-cooler sister of my beloved favorites and I cannot WAIT to wear arms full of them this summer! (Attention brides to be – these would make FAB bridesmaid gifts!)
Top of my list? The Cool Girl Friendship Bracelets (made with Swarovski elements, silk cord, brass and leather)…
… the City Girl Friendship Bracelet.(made with Swarovski elements, brass and a pave ball closure)..
and the stunning Thoroughbred Wrap Bracelet (made with Swarovski elements and Italian leather.)
There are tons more so check out Henri Bendel’s website and pick out your own favorite friendship bracelets. They’ll add a great pop of color to your spring look and will be a chic nod to your childhood fashion statement.
You won’t even have to tell your friends where you got your gorgeous accessories upgrade. It’ll be our secret. Pinky swear. 🙂
