Fun Finds: Goodwill Gems + DIY Bracelet

The other day one of my dear friends, Anna, and I met for brunch and some shopping! We took over the flea market and thrift shops in town and Anna scooped up some great pieces for her home. {Ahem...she should post about them! ; ) }

While at the Goodwill I picked up two great little staples! First up, I grabbed these never-been-worn Target semi-flats:

They are the perfect little flat with just a hint of a baby wedge to keep things interesting. I really like the gun metal color and the fact that they were just $3.oo. Which I guess wasn't even really a factor since I was rocking a gift certificate. Hooray.

While at the register I spotted this Kenneth Cole link bracelet and made it mine as well.

I am really digging bracelets right now. It's kind of weird because I've never been a bracelet type of girl. I surprise myself daily.

And to add to my growing bracelet collection, I finally made this DIY hexagon bracelet I saw Michelle talk about on her blog not too long ago. All the supplies you'll need {plus maybe a little bit --scratch that-- a lot of dexterity in your fingers}:

I'm usually a pretty good DIYer but this little braid and thread design had me almost throw in the towel. It's a good thing I'm not a quitter.

That's right. I'm wearing three bracelets + a white watch up there. Too much you say? Never. I might as well dub this summer as the "summer of the bang and bracelet". I've brought both things back into my life like it's 1998. It does have a nice ring to it, dontcha think?

That's all for now! Adios, friends. I'm off to learn something at grad school today.

OMG i made that same bracelet a few weeks ago and i was cursing and sooo frustrated and had to redo it like five times. the happiness I felt about making it while in the Lowe's bolt and nut aisle quickly subsided when i attempted to make it. AND only once i got it finished and wore it did i realize that one bolt has this discoloration and it drives me crazy. very cute and i got compliments on it but man, so much harder than i anticipated. HAHA! oh well, thats DIY stuff for ya. stil a great idea if youre patient :)
