Cuff - Asos 
Top - New Look 




Forget 'Tres Tres Chic', it's all about 'Tres Tres Greek'. With wrap-style dresses and the one-shoulder look returning, Greek inspiration has yet to be forgotten. We now have the 'cuff' which I personally think is amazing! The only down side? They make me look stupid.

 It's always been apparent that I have a short body; 5 foot 2, stubby legs and arms that are ONE WHOLE foot too short. My legs affect jean sizes, but that is about all. I never thought my height would then present another problem of bracelet sizes. I tried on a cuff in Primark the other day, one that was meant to cover about 1/4 of my arm...it covered half of it. I literally looked arm-less.  I figured it just wasn't meant to be and I decided to forget about Mr. Cuff before my heart was broken.

 Until, there I was doing my daily round of online shops and I saw this. Now before you say 'chlo, it's not a cuff'. It is. It said it on the product description, so thou shall not burst one's bubble ;) It may not be the traditional chunky, 100 metres long cuff, but it is beautiful and offered me a nice little solution.

 I guess the moral of the story is...bigger is not always better. Now there's something you don't hear every day ;)
