In August, I attended the Carolee Fall/Holiday Press Preview. Carolee is one of my go-to resources for stylish fashion jewelry for formal or semi-formal occasions. In fact my bridesmaids even wore earrings and bracelets from Carolee during my Charlotte wedding last year. It was one of my gifts to them. However at their recent press preview, it wasn’t the “bling” I went home thinking about. I was most smitten by the new Word Play bangles. They too make excellent bridesmaids gifts and are so fun for stacking.

Carolee Word Play Breast Cancer Awareness Bangle in "Rose Gold"

I’m really into the “rose gold” Breast Cancer Awareness style above because a portion of each sale goes toward BC research. (I don’t know nary a person who hasn’t been touched in some way by Breast Cancer.) Plus, rose gold is just cool. However, there are dozens of other styles to choose from — in the aforementioned rose gold, silver and yellow gold tones. Is your maid of honor a serious dog lover? Then she’d probably appreciate this style. Maybe your matron of honor is a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc. Then this style could be a great fit for her.

These bangles retail at a starting price of forty-five bucks and in addition to the Carolee website are available at most major department stores. Not having a bridal party? You could always treat yourself to some new arm candy. Shhh!
