If you follow fashion, you've no doubt admired Leandra Medine aka The Man Repeller's gorgeous bracelet bashes which usually include her Cartier Love bracelet (here, here and here). But while the Man Repeller is able to wear a bracelet that costs thousands of dollars (God bless), she's also an advocate of less expensive bling that's just as eye-catching. It's about how you style something and make it your own, not the brand name or the price tag.
Having said that, you can search for screw bracelet on eBay to get a Cartier-inspired bracelet under $50 (although I can't vouch for quality).
Or, you can pick up this bracelet by Michael Kors that combines the Cartier buckle bracelet and love bracelet into one, chic and unique bangle. It's available in silver or gold for $85 at Nordstrom.com.
