I first found the pic at top on (I think) either Garance Dore or the Sartorialist; and fell in love with not only her bright redish suit, black nails and general chic-ness, but mostly her collection of old school woven friendship bracelets.
Googled up some more images and found all of these fabulous reasons to give this little trend a shot. Hello Etsy (or D.I.Y.) and if you want to glam up this childhood favorite, these.
I can't wait to layer these colorful woven delights up my arm ;-)
