FOUND - A Cheap & Charmful Armful


I found this stack of plastic bangles at Oxfam in Ealing. I often talk about searching out quality; well-made 2nd-hand pieces, fashioned from silks, wools and brushed cottons that have been looked after by previous owners are what we hunters want. Now and then however, quality is trumped by quantity. These eight plastic, oddly coloured bracelets, combined with 4 wooden ones I already had, make a strong stylish statement that I think Muiccia Prada would find appealing. Their clink clinky sound is sartorial music to my ears. Their £1.98 price tag, an artistic miniature for the eyes.
