Diane Von Furstenberg Collaborates on a Line of Brazilian 'Wish Bracelets'




Here's a new addition for your arm party that can bring you good luck in addition to great style: The Brazilet. According to a 200-year-old tradition from Bahia, Brazil, the Brazilet is wrapped around the wrist and tied in three knots. Make a wish with each knot, and when the bracelet naturally breaks down and falls off, your three wishes will come true. Hey, for just $5 each, it can't hurt to try! And it can certainly help other good causes - Diane Von Furstenberg has teamed up to create a special line of Brazilets with phrases like "Love is life" and "Be the woman you want to be" with 20% of all proceeds going towards 'Plant a Billion Trees' which benefits the Brazilian rainforest. Celebrities like Anne Hathaway, Kate Hudson, Kristen Stewart, and Lauren Conrad are already fans of the Brazilet brand. Buy your DVF Brazilets for $5 at liveworldly.com or Diane Von Furstenberg stores.

I was in Bahia a few years ago and had a couple of these. Fair warning: they stayed on for over three months before I finally cut them off! My wish still came true, though. DVF's could be very different material than the real ones, but be prepared for a commitment if you intend to let them fall off,
