    I’m wearing the JCrew clamp bracelet today. It’s so classy and versatile; one of my favorite pieces of jewelry.

    As a longtime reader of this blog, I’ve always had my eye out for tortoise shoes – it seems like they’d be a great alternative to plain brown. Any favorite pairs recently?

      Yes! I’d love a recommendation for tortoise flats or loafers!

      Yes please! I had a pair (from payless, no less- they were so cheap and comfy, but of course didn’t last long) and would love to find another, longer lasting pair!

      agree, agree! would love to see some tortoise pumps. I tried a Talbots pair but they hurt and I was so sad to have to return them

    No doubt these are beautiful bracelets, but I read once that turtles are killed expressly for their shells to make, among other items, jewelry. I have since backed away from this trend to send a message to industry that cruelty-free practices are my preference over fashion. I see you recommended a lucite version, so hopefully plastic or other materials to create the look of tortoise shell will prevail over genuine tortoise shell.

      It appears that the bracelets in the post are “tortoiseshell and marble design” or straight up plastic and resin. I’ll keep an eye out for future posts.

      almost all of the “tortoiseshell” fashion jewelry you see is made of plastic or resin since 1973, the trade of tortoiseshell worldwide was banned under CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) so you can hopefully enjoy the look knowing its cruelty free
