awesomely alex + ani

As you may already recall, Alex and Ani already had a place in my heart, as of a while now. So, when I was approached to collab with this fab company, you can imagine my reaction. This company is all about positive energy: girl power, feeling empowered to live your cause, and to celebrate life with fabulous jewelry and charms that represent you. My first exposure to Alex and Ani was actually through my dear friend Andrea of A Spoonful of Sugar Baking (surgeon, baker, chef, and photographer extraordinaire), when she sent me some beautiful bracelets in a care package.  It was love at first sight. I then hunted down the Alex and Ani Disney bracelets when on a family trip to Disney World… and the love story has continued! Below you will see my new favorite picks- ones that were particularly meaningful to me. Most exciting of all, I will have an Alex and Ani giveaway in the near future, so stay tuned and start looking through their site for your own personal favorites!

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) Interested in learning more about Alex and Ani ? Click on the name to link to their site. You can see how I styled the bracelets in this post, however, I also have my Disney bracelets too! If you happen to be in the parks, some are sold exclusively in the parks. You can find what shops sell them here. I found mine in the Women’s Fashion section of the “Emporium” retail store right near the entrance of the Magic Kingdom.

2) Clearly the Ann Taylor Loft clearance section has really been calling my name lately. Interesting enough, they mixed their magical “final sale” items in with their regular sale items when I was last there! This called for, of course, some serious digging through the racks to find the $4 items. I thought this hunting would take a long time, but realistically, it took me about 10 minutes and some patience. It’s unclear whether this is how they are not distributing their final sale items, but it’s worth asking at your local store if you’re interested in learning more.

Anyone else have their own fav Alex and Ani pieces? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so very much!
