Cute as a Button

I'm from NH, so I've still got a bit of love for the whole artsy-craft look that's big around here. Also, I frequent craft fairs. So I'm basically 60 years old.

Regardless, my latest trip to a fair was pretty good. I managed to find this adorable button bracelet (for $10!). It's a stretchy bangle and I think it looks super funky.

The thing that's tough about accessories like this, is that lots of people see an item that's crafty and immediately want to pair it with more crafty things. The result of that is an outfit that looks like it was made in a barn--not very appealing. The way to wear something like this is to make sure that the rest of your outfit is classic, stylish, and well-tailored. That ensures that 1.) you won't look like a hick, and 2.) the accessory will stand out in a good way.

The bracelet is made by a small company based in Maine, Cute as a Button Designs. They don't have a website, but I can supply their email: hwoods@middlebury.edu. They make loads of things out of buttons and, living up to their name, everything really is cute as a button (har har har, I know I'm hilarious).
