Announcer: And they’re off!
The great summer accessories race of 2012 has begun, and it’s a two-way contest between nautical belts and tasseled boat shoes.
But what’s this? Out of nowhere comes the striking new horse-hair jewelry line from Boston stylist Christen Ashley Mitchell.
We’ve never seen a contender like this! Mitchell sources ethically harvested, snow-white locks from Utah, then uses human hair dyes to turn the equine tresses neon-bright pink, blue, and yellow. In the final lap, she braids the hair into luxurious textiles.
Whinny over simple yet showy pieces, like the tricolor chain bracelet or skinny anklet that accents your tan. We’d gallop a mile for the bar necklace.
These babies can’t be beat.
