Crossing the cultural barriers of your everyday adornment on your suntanned crusty surfer to fashion editors around the world..I've always loved me some rainbow friendship band action.

Love the colors and I'm liking how the simple friendship bracelet is being mixed with luxury fashion.

Absolutely Mrs. K said...

woohoo this post made me smile instantly. not only the bracelets, but the beautiful bright colors. I remember the bracelets, i have worn them a lot especially on festivals (don(t know why). oh and in my hair too. and the thing was, you could not get them out, you had to cut them of.

Bringing back so many childhood memories!

Ramona said...

I love as well. Every summer I make some dozen in bright colours and wear them under my crispy white shirt and suit. I love to see my clients reactions when suddenly they pop out of my sleeve.Haha!
Absolutely adore this trend!

The colour here is fabulous!!!

I adore jewllery and wear a great deal of it everyday, but I actually am yet to own a friendship band such as these . . .
Makes me want to go out and buy hundreds to wear all at once!!!

Perhaps they are not as common or in fashion here in my city in Aus? I will start a trend . . .
