Part 2 of 3
I've always hated having to lug around a bag or purse when attending a social function. It's trying enough to balance a plate full of goodies and a drink without having your shoulder bag slip off or your armpit going numb from keeping a clutch in place. Same with dancing or even going to an outdoor event.
Well, Jacqueline Dadon, fashion designer and the founder of Cuffs Couture solved the problem of how to carry life's little necessities with her bejeweled wrist wallet collection.
Use the integrated pockets of one to hold some cash, a couple of credit cards, ID, house key (there is a key chain attachment inside the cuff) and perhaps some lip gloss. Wear another on the other wrist for a small cell phone and you are set to go!
It is indeed "ingenious functionality" when you have designs which work and look good at the same time. Some of her inspiration comes from historical European portraits as you can see from the ultra-feminine designs. There are also a number of simpler designs more suitable for day wear.
Jacqueline said, "After the designs were complete we were surprised and delighted to see Chanel’s Fall 2009 collection of jackets with embellished cuffs and we felt right on target! We added a few pieces inspired by Chanel’s collection so that we could bring the high fashion look to the masses, but we added functionality to it as well!"
It's no wonder that celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Audrina Patridge and Jaime Pressly are fans already. Cuffs Couture is definitely hot with the celebrity crowd.
