We’ve all been there – at a holiday party or wedding reception or some other event - dressed up and feeling elegant with your glass in one hand and purse in the other. And then, inevitably, you need a free hand! Whether it’s to answer your phone, shake someone’s hand, or grab a canapé off that tray that’s whizzing past. But alas, you’re trapped.

With this cute little wristlet, you can mingle with ease. Work it around your favorite bangle bracelet to turn your beloved accessory into a party necessity. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without it!
