Mini-giveaway: Batucada "Baroco" Bracelet

The remainder of my days in California have been spent packing, bidding farewell to friends, perusing the Iliad, and lounging at home watching Disney movies and eating homemade potstickers. I have packed most of my clothes, and now am wearing a daily uniform of tank top, jeans, and sandals. On the laziest days when I don't leave the house, I am probably wearing a raggedy pair of shorts and a giant t-shirt -- no really, I did pack everything.
Since I only have seven days left at home, I am hosting a mini-giveaway for a Batucada eco-plastic "Baroco" bracelet from Brooklyn5and10! As you can see, I am wearing the "Baroco" necklace, which is fascinating because the soft plastic molds to your skin, like a tattoo necklace. Reminds me of those tattoo chokers that were all the rage in elementary school, but much more interesting in an asymmetrical organic sense. It feels like nothing. While I've always been a gold, silver, and pearl snob, I adore the idea of jewelry that I can easily wear while swimming or exercising (the plastic is sweatproof and waterproof). I was actually doing research on "easy-maintenance" jewelry for an article I was planning to write when I stumbled across this collection.

To enter to win, just leave your name, age, email address -- and tell me about your favorite piece of jewelry. Entries close on August 23rd, 2009, and the winner will be announced on August 24th, 2009. Good luck, and more good luck if you've already started school!

Miss Couturable

P.S. Yes, the selection of the winner will be random -- so feel free to enter if you happen to know me in real life.
