It seems that I’m not the only one who has been obsessing about getting a pile of rough wrist candy after seeing images of the ever-so-stylish Elle Style Editor Kate Lanphear rocking tons of iron around her wrists. Her simple, androgyne aestethics with a touch of roughness and attitude really make my heart skip a beat, and I could easily name her as one of the most influential style icons of today. I guess the similtude of our styles is what makes me attracted to her, as I find the same aesthethics being the corner stones of my personal style.

With Kate’s chunky jewellery in my mind, I went to a store called Leather Heaven which I knew would carry all things made of leather and metal, and came back with a pyramid stud cuff and spiked “rat” cuff in my shopping bag (ps. now I’m planning on ordering this baby). Last night they served as my faithful wrists of fury when I needed some space on the dance floor of the fully packed club. Weapons of destruction or a fashion statement? You decide.
