I’LL TAKE THE CLASSIC WRAP, HOLD THE MAYO – Chan Luu Wraps
I’ve been a fan of Chan Luu for years, but haven’t thought about her collection lately. Now, her wrap bracelets – one of her signature pieces – are re-emerging in boutiques as a trendy accessory.
Recently I noticed my friend Lezlie had a couple wrapped around her wrist with her watch and a few other bracelets. So much cuter than bangles – not to mention less annoying.
Later that week I was introduced to CL’s rep at a ZaZa event and before I could even get up the nerve to ask (or she knew my job as a blogger) she offered me a discount! Me turn down a discount? No! So, I bought Mom and I the brown leather wrap with sterling silver beads – a versatile piece to go with everything. Neither of us leave the house without them now.
Prices start at $170 and can escalate to over $450 for the 14k gold ones so the discount was a welcome surprise. But I can honestly say I would pay the full $195 for the one I bought (maybe not some of the crazy colored ones…). It’s a classic piece that will certainly find it’s way to the back of my jewelry box at one point, but when I discover it again down the road, I’ll fall in love with it all over again.
