OK, I know I said I wasn't going to dwell on the weather after my last few odes to spring fashion but seriously, I'm afraid Mother Nature has truly got the best of me this year.

Admittedly, I have a lot of fun garments in my fall and winter wardrobe, enough to carry me through a normal season without much complaint. This year however, I have grown so sick of having to constantly pull from that wardrobe week after week thanks to this relentless winter and cold arctic air.

And, I assume like most Winnipeg fashionistas, I absolutely refuse to purchase anything wool, warm, black or grey -- I am done with winter. That said, I am not quite sure I am ready to embrace the fabulous spring fashions -- it just doesn't seem right to wear bare feet and pastels when there is still ice and five feet of snow out there.

So delighted I was when I had an email forwarded to me about a line of bracelets and bangles designed to help lift your chi and send you some good vibes -- just what the style goddesses have ordered.

Alex and Ani bangles are designed to empower wearers of the brand with positive energy through the charms and their meanings, and by channeling our individuality -- since each piece is meant to be worn stacked and grouped to your personal taste and style.

Personally, I love the stacked look when it comes to delicate bangles. It allows you to mix and match metals adorned with jewel tone gemstones, baubles and beads and personalized charms to create a unique look.

What I like about the Alex and Ani bangles is that they are so delicate you can really stack quite a few of them together without looking like your wrists are weighed down.

I also really love how the brand offers a wide variety of charms and talismans for you to choose -- from a blossoming lotus to your favourite NFL team -- so the sky is the limit when it comes to selection.

Alex and Ani bangles are available online at www.alexandani.com.
