DIY wrapped bracelet

 You’ll need (for a double wrapped bracelet) :

* Fold the length of leather cording in half to form a loop. The loop should fit around the hex nut, which serves as the clasp. Run the tip of the waxed linen upwards along the leather cord and towards the loop. Then wrap around the base of the loop at least 5-6 times, working downwards in the opposite direction. This secures the waxed linen cord and is the start of the bracelet.

Place the ball chain along the leather cording with the end of the chain meeting the end of the wrap. Holding the ball chain against the leather cord, wrap the linen around tightly.

Continue wrapping while checking it for fit around the wrist.

When you have reached the end of the ball chain wrap the linen cording around the leather strands 2-3 more times. Tie a knot with all three strands.

Thread the hex nut through the strands and tie a second knot.

Trim with scissors and your wrap bracelet is finished!!

The materials are listed for a double wrap bracelet. For a single or triple wrapped bracelet, divide the measurements by 2 and multiply by accordingly. Experiment with crystal or other types of chain!

It’s a party!

Primark knocked offPrabal Gurung???

Did my favorite British department store Primark knocked offPrabal Gurung for their spring collection? Some said photo evidence indicates it’s very likely. I personally love the prices, great design, and Quality. You can get big jackets and coats for around £15-£25 (sometimes £10 but you have to spot them fast!) and layer up underneath for a further £10. Jeans are about £8-£10 and you can get a tonne of socks for under £10...   
Our eagle-eyed friends at The Fashion Law were thefirst to see this tweet of a London Primark’s windows. Though the photo itself is a bit blurry, a few designs are clearly visible, including one that instantaneously calls to mine one of the more iconic looks from Prabal Gurung’s resort 2012 collection. (See below.)
The source of the tweet, @NickGFromDC, directed the photo to the official Prabal Gurung twitter, whichresponded: “Oh boy looks like it TY 4 lettin us know.”
A little digging on the Primark website unearths at least one more similar look. 
What do you think? Florals for spring is hardly a ground-breaking concept, but the shape and coloring of the Primark dress bares more than a passing resemblance. It is unclear if Gurung plans to pursue any legal action, but I’ll keep you posted.
