Balenciaga Bracelets

When the leather cuff first came out in aged brass hardware, I did not care for them.  It reminded me of a  chunky watchband, and I don't wear watches at all.  This season, they have created the triple tour (wraps around 3 times) with Giant Silver and Rose Gold Hardware!  The silver hardware does not do much for me but, the rose gold is a stunner! The subtlety of this hardware looks elegant in an understated way.  You can  also pair it with other bangles for a lovely layered look!  

Cult Status blog (Australian lux boutique) has shot some gorgeous pics of the newest triple tour and rose gold cuffs.

Another bracelet that really gets me excited is Alexander McQueen's double wrap skull bracelet.  The Oil Slick version has to be my fave, and I love the skull charm.  Similarly priced at $220-$250.  Hmm.. which to get.. Bal or A. McQueen? I have to say I love both.
