Item of the Week: Brooklyn Bridge Cuff.
Posted on August 08, 2013
This stand-out piece speaks for itself. Those two iconic arches sit side-by-side with the symmetrical cables jutting out next to them. While on this powerful bridge, you find yourself surrounded in a whirlwind of people moving as quickly as possible by foot, bike, and car. Once you get a hold of a map-- which hardly looks like a map at all, more like hundreds of tiny rectangles stacked on top of each other, with a few diagonals making their way through the clutter-- you find your way underground, into the subway. There's the faintest smell of stale air from old tile and damp cement and you hear the clicking of shoes on the floor along with the whooshing sound of the trains. Once you're on the train, the sensation of stop & go & stop & go makes you realize that you're getting hungry; all you really want is a hot dog from a street cart. Once you rise to the surface from being underground, you're surrounded by giant skyscrapers, taxis, and busy humans with things to do, people to see, and places to go.

To me, this cuff holds such strength and balances femininity & masculinity perfectly. When I sport this cuff I want to be wearing something comfortable and casual, but still cool and powerful. Try some boyfriend jeans and go one step further with your boyfriend's actual tank (yes, the top below is technically a men's top but hey, who needs to know?). Like I said, balance it out with some sassy wedges, pretty sunglasses, a cool infinity scarf, and bring in the casual-lux with a black leather knapsack. Top it all off with a simple necklace, studs, and a little bit of Brooklyn. Boom! You are now ready for a summer day in New York (don't mind the humidity).
