|Alexis Bittar Interlaced Bangle (AKA the Miss Havisham New Wave Bangle, apparently)|
My taste in jewelry has changed a bit in the last year or so. I used to be very much a J. Crew colorful statement necklace kind of person, and there's definitely nothing wrong with that. I am even keeping at least two of my brightly colored statement necklaces in my post-KonMari method, more "minimalist" (in terms of size) jewelry collection.
These days, when I add new pieces, I look for smaller, daintier designs. I find that I also tend to reach for those pieces more when putting together outfits.

I was thinking about getting a new bracelet. I currently own only one, a Gorjana Sunset Disc bracelet in blue/green (no longer available) that is consistent with my current preference for more delicate jewelry, but I am fond of these interlaced bangle style ones too. I don't think I can justify the expenditure, given that I have a few more pressing needs at the moment and the full retail price was never really going to fit in my budget (at least for pieces that are just costume jewelry).
Still, I will keep an eye on these styles and think about it more seriously if either goes on sale.
