A Flick of the Wrist

Adorning one’s own wrists with baubles, bracelets, bangles, watches (sometimes more than one), and tattoos is de rigueur it seems because images are popping up everywhere on my radar. 

Elle McPherson was the first person I noticed in the fashion world adorning her wrist with an assortment of baubles, including a Rolex Daytona men’s watch.   

This little trend most likely came about from humble beginnings such as having no where else to put a spare hair band.  Now friendship bracelets of all designs are being piled up our wrists.  

 Two watches – two times to keep track of – I have enough trouble with just one time-zone!

Why not try going through that box of old forgotten jewellery you keep somewhere in the back of your closet because there is bound to be something interesting you can give new life to there, or maybe if you ask nicely your grandma will let you raid her box of trinkets, you could, or at the very least, steal (sorry, borrow) your man’s watch.  Whatever works, cause it seems to!
