When the grass starts to grow and the wildflowers take over the fields (or vacant lots, if you're a city person), we have happy thoughts on our minds! All the more this year because, if the 2013 runway collections were an indication, the clothes we are going to wear will be BRIGHT! Lots of electric blue, bright orange, sunshine yellow and neons, yes, NEON colors aplenty. Use the photo below as an inspiration to design your spring 2013 anchor bracelet, anklet or choker today! Over 33 colors of parachute cord available, to create countless feel-good color combinations!
All the pieces from the Anchor Collection + the NON ET NON-The Affirmative Collection range from 25 to 120 US dollars.
