Miu Miu Crystal Embellished Cameo Bracelet, 355 euro. Available at MyTheresa.com
The bracelet looks cheaper than a dollarstore trinket. But it’s a cameo. And if you know anything about cameos, well, they’re kinda complicated. Their popularity ebbs and flows. Back in the 90s, Laura Secord was the only kind of cameo anyone ever really talked about, and then ate. Yummy little chocolate ladies, side profile and milky. This bracelet is so goddamn kitschy I can’t help but crush on it. Plus, I’m sort of deeply involved in a Miu Miu phase, presently. I just can’t wait to share my latest (and first ever) Miu Miu acquisition with all of you, a proud addition to my wardrobe … stay tuned if you’re naming your first born Miuccia.
Me, wearing the Alexis Bittar cuff bracelet that could be the new mascot for American beauty. You can only find this piece in select boutiques (it’s not available online) and it had no price tag. “It’s a showpiece”, explained the Bittar salesclerk, “only for editorial use.” I’m sure we could’ve named her price, though, she didn’t want me to take it off! Unlucky for me, it was a tad too big and because of the gemstone placement, couldn’t even be squeezed a bit like a stretch genie antidote.
