Thinking outside the (jewelry) box

I've had a number of compliments on two bracelet sets I've been wearing the past week or two. Each set consists of colored beads on three stretchable bands -- one set in shades of green, one in gold and burgundy. I'm upfront about where I got them: on the hairclip rack at Kmart. They were intended for use in tying up what I still call pony tails, although perhaps these days they are called something else. Cheap and attractive: that's not me, but my bracelets.

i still call 'em "pony tails" and in my youth whilst i still had a hairstyle that could support a pony tail, i'd be seen with a "scrunchie" around my wrist.

i'm impressed with the fashion upgrade and the resulting compliments :)

Thanks, Sarah.

Maybe the scrunchie around the wrist is where I got the idea -- I recall seeing that not that long ago.
