My Man-Attracting Thailand Bracelet

Top & Belt: Forever 21 | Skirt: Anthropologie | Wedges: Target (shop) | Bracelet: Thailand night market


I'm proud to say that I FINISHED!  I actually wanted to give up after #29.  Can you believe it?  I was one outfit away from finishing and I was going to throw in the towel, but I forced myself to throw on some clothes instead and post a 30th look.

My bracelet is from a night market in Thailand and whenever I look at it it brings me back to Thailand.  Do you have clothing that reminds you of places you've been or experiences you've had?

Here's a closeup (from another 30 for 30 look that I never posted!):


I have 3 of these in different colors, and so does my husband.  I used to only have one but when my friend also visited Thailand I asked her to buy me a handful more because my husband used to steal this bracelet from me and wear it.  And pretty much every single time he wore it, random, well-dressed men complimented him...and/or hit on him.  Little did we know this bracelet was such a man-magnet.  Or maybe it's just my husband.

  1. The story of that bracelet cracks me up! I'm glad you got more, because they're cool. Also, I'm glad to see you finished. Giving up so close to the end would be sad! Are you excited to have your closet back? I totally was, haha.

  2. That's a hoot! My bf has this one button down that I borrow every now and then, and whenever I do, I get hit on, so who knows: maybe there's power in wearing the clothes of your partner! I also really love wearing my memories in this way -- it's so lovely to be literally wrapped in fond memories of travel!

  3. Congrats on finishing!! I have to say, that challenge was really hard for me and my outfits did not look nearly as put together as yours. :) I love that bracelet. :)

  4. Congratulations on finishing 30x30! I know you just tossed it on but this outfit really looks great, I love the belt with the skirt. Also can you send me one of those bracelets? I can always use a good man magnet!

  6. I hear you on wanting to stop after 29, eeking out a 30th was so tough but you really nailed the 30th one! What a fantastic way to end the challenge, I really love the details of the skirt and pattern on the shirt!  Most of my bracelets are souvenirs from vacations, and I love that they remind me of good times everytime I wear them!

  7. Thanks, Jess!  I'd be glad to send you a man-attracting bracelet, but it seems to only work on gay men.  Haha.

  8. The belt is just from Target.  I had to buy one two sizes too big, intending to use a leather hole punch and poke holes in it, but I tied it in a double-knot instead.  It's in this post too:  http://www.puttingmetogether.com/2011/06/stripes-and-yellow.html
