What to Wear Wednesday (Pura Vida Bracelets)

July 31, 2013

Back in 1988 you could usually find me tangled up on a Saturday night in a pile full of gimp.

Like an overseas factory, I’d be feverishly working to turn out as many bracelets as I could in preparation for school Monday morning.

If you were lucky enough to be in possession of glitter, neon, or even glow in the dark gimp, your bracelets would levy your social standing and you’d be the king of the castle!

But those good old days are gone, and for the last 15 years I’ve been awaiting the return of the ‘friendship’ bracelet… And finally, they’re back!!!

A drunken night in a Las Vegas bar I met an amazing group of new friends.

When I woke up in the morning I wondered, had it all been a dream?

But then I saw it!


The proof of my amazing new friends, and the return of the friendship bracelet!

I was so in love with the new arm candy that I had to find out more!

The company, Pura Vida, is not only about fashion and friendship, but they’re also out to support a good cause.

They house dozens of bracelets on their website in a variety of colours which show their support for particular charities. And of course they also donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each to that cause.

Pura Vida also makes a ton of different versions with some pretty amazing hardware as well.

I’m so glad to see such a simple and amazing bracelet back in my wardrobe.

It’s a good way to always keep you thinking of the amazing friends you have.
