Look for less: Carolina Bucci Friendship Bracelet -> Gara Danielle Heart Rope Bracelet

I loved the twin hearts on the charm hanging from this Gara Danielle heart rope bracelet (left image). I thought the red threading with gold was a nice touch as well. And we can't forget the gold tassels (I don't need to say again how much I love tassels :P) Off I went to do my research on this bracelet, trying to see if any stores were selling it for cheaper. Lo and behold, I saw that this is a copy of Carolina Bucci's friendship bracelet (right image)! Of the two, I liked the charm on Gara Danielle's better but Carolina Bucci's just looks so much more... bendable (for lack of a better word). Doesn't Gara Danielle's look a bit stiff?

And boy was I right when Gara Danielle's finally went on sale and I was able to snatch it up for < $30. The bracelet is as stiff as a board! That makes it so hard to put on by myself. I have to use one hand to wrap it around my wrist and somehow manage to hook the bracelet together!? I once spent 15 minutes trying to put it on by myself, and finally just put it back on my dresser out of frustration. Sad to say, I haven't been wearing this bracelet a whole lot. Thank goodness I didn't buy it at full retail! But it photographs so well, don't you think? ;)
