So I don’t know about you but I am SO happy that the “Silly Bandz” craze appears to be over.  The inventors, likely being fanned by a giant banana leaf as I type, made millions of kids happy and left millions of adults feeling emotionally devastated that they did not come up with the concept themselves.  I must alert my overseas friends however that the new “15 minutes” of bracelets has arrived in town.  Bracedlets are suddenly in vogue in NYC and were developed by two New York orthodontists using actual orthodontic materials.  Having recently received some as a gift for my daughters, I must say, they are actually kind of cool and I really like that they are durable, colorful and dare I say — stylish!?  While a tad pricey at $4.99 each but they do last and are funky enough for an adult to wear without feeling ashamed.

How crazy! I’ve never even heard of these before! I’m sure it won’t be long before they’re taking over Europe too…

is it me or is it them? i’m all for stylish and all for new trends but these have something revolting about them…who wants to look like they are wearing braces on their wrists?

Wow! You are so on top of the trends! These are the hottest new things to hit NYC! I have tried to find them and most stores are sold out. Finally found a few and my kids are so excited. Thanks for keeping me hip!
