Metal Pointus bracelets are my go-to accessory when I want to add some sass to my outfit. I feel more stylish and edgy the moment I slip one on. Wearing a Metal Pointus cuff instantly transforms my demeanor from that of an ordinary suburban housewife to chic and confident woman of the world.
In 2007, my wonderful husband surprised me with a trip to Paris for my 40th birthday. We stayed in an apartment in the Marais neighborhood, which is chock full of incredible boutiques, the Metal Pointus boutique being one of them. I knew from the moment I stared into the shop’s windows, I had to bring a piece home.
I selected this cuff. It’s my all time favorite bracelet. Not only is it gorgeous, but I’ve discovered that it somehow makes my upper arm look more taut and slim when I wear it with a short sleeve or sleeveless top. Bonus!
We returned to Paris in 2008. Again, I visited the same Metal Pointus boutique in search of another item. I thought about a ring or necklace, or even a pair of earrings. But then this beautiful monster caught my eye.
Weighing in at just shy of a pound and being three inches long, this cuff isn’t the most versatile or comfortable, but it does wonders for a boring outfit. And it’s a great conversation starter.
I made my latest Metal Pointus purchase last October at the same boutique. Bill helped me decide on this one. It’s the most subdued of the three and the most wearable.
Now it’s your turn. What is your favorite/perfect accessory?
