Adrien: My New Favorite Thing

I think I've mentioned before that I'm totally and creepily obsessed with Kate Lanphear. Seriously, if I were her I'd probably be afraid of me. I just freaking LOVE HER OMG. Ahem. Anyway, I saw this amazing photo recently on Garance Doré:

And I kind of died all over the place and then decided I need to wear a million bracelets at a time and never mind that some of hers are obviously freaking Hermès and then I broke down weeping. But! This past weekend I sold my jewelry at the most excellent Spring Bada-Bing and before the show even opened I made a beeline for Fisticuffs Leather and bought this cuff bracelet:

Cool, right? Better than stupid Hermès (sob). John Davis (who is Fisticuffs Leather) makes them from old belts, which I think is the coolest thing ever. After I'd chosen mine from his huge display I snapped it on and he said,
"Huh. Girls always wear them with the fastener on top."

Um, yeah dude. That's the best part.

Anyway, it's only one cuff bracelet but it's a start, right?


  1. Very cool. I bought myself a fisticuff at Spring Bada Bing as well. Because even older, married, with kid, semi-employed bloggers need to look cool every now and then right?

  2. I love your cuff. Also, Kate Lanphear has the best hair.

  3. Doesn't she? I just love her. Richard, I'm married and no spring chicken so you're in good company.
