The Cooee screw/bolt bracelet

Let's talk about the Cooee bracelets. Mmm, I should I put it nicely... I hate them. Okay, okay, you're starting to know me and you'll say that I'll be buying the neon one for spring, but this time I highly doubt it. I like the acrylic cuff idea, and if it's good quality (no cheap H&M acrylic bracelets, pleeeeeeeeeease !), it can be kind of cool. The obvious problem is the massive screw/bolt closure, for me it screams too much. Too edgy, too original and too ugly. I don't know if it's because I'm allergic to screws and bolts since I dismantled a car engine during my university years (as an assignement, not for pleasure), but I definitely don't see the aesthetic beauty on these. Nor the coolness as some seem to perceive (just look at the sample of girls sporting these, and as I say it is just a sample).

But if you like them, check out Moda Operandi where you can pre-order the latest collection with new colors. I think I'll pass.

Now, help me out here, am I the only one hating these bracelets or are you with me on this ?

Have a great weekend !

ps: I'm sorry for my absence on the blog (and on yours) during the week but I have been adjusting to the fact that my son started kindergarten on Monday. I have and it's back to normal again.

  2. My first thought was George's old trike was missing one of those bolts. I'm not going for this one either - I can think of nicer bracelets to spend my money on. But I do like the lavendar blue colour on the second bracelet .... but still not going for it.

  4. Um... interesting. I can see how they would work for some people's style but I'm with you. I'm a pass. I struggle with crazy kind of items. I never would have the guts to wear them although I've just bought and been won over by crazy crazy leopard print flats. Who knew!

    I hope you're coping with the kindergarten separation. I remember those days. Tough times especially for mums! Sending you a huge hug!
