Sometimes something catches my eye like a magpie and I just can’t get it out of my head. I’m pretty frivolous (after a long time of being skint I finally deserve to splash the cash a little) so I’m always making a purchase here, an investment there, but often I just can’t justify spending £65 on a zebra bangle. I’d been thinking about this for months, ever since I went to a Stella and Dot trunk show and saw it for myself, but could never bear to part with the cash for something so small and outrageous. How often will you ever wear a zebra diamante bangle? Well, after hosting my own trunk show (which I wrote about here) I’d earned some credit, so there was no stopping me snapping this up for around half price. As soon as I opened the box I started to coo as if it was a small baby, delicately placing it on my wrist where it stayed for about two days. The quality of Stella and Dot jewellery is fantastic, as well as the designs being pretty timeless and unique – I much prefer to spend a bit more on something I know will last, rather than endless bits of tat from H&M and Topshop (although we all though that will never cease!) I’ve received so many comments on this bangle, from friends admiring my statement piece, to the corner shop lady quizzing me on where it was from – it was definitely worth holding out and splurging on something I’ll no doubt love for a long time.
The Stella and Dot Kalahari bangle (or zebra bangle!) is available exclusively online or via a trunk show. RRP £65.00, although host your own event at home and earn credits/discount!
