stack ’em high: our alex and ani addiction

stack ’em high: our alex and ani addiction

Here’s a well-known secret about the Mosaic team: we love us a good stack of alex and ani bangles.

One member of our team hails from New England (real fall foliage, holla!) and found out about alex and ani a few years ago as it was starting to take off back near the Bay State. Friends from home would pop up to visit with cool, thin bangles and their equally adorable charms. One became two became ten – and we started to quietly stock up.

Fast forward a few years, and alex and ani is taking over the world – or at least the accessories market. They’ve now got everything from bangles to beaded bracelets, candles to clutches and wine charms to …earrings (we couldn’t continue the alliteration on that one). One thing that hasn’t changed? We’re still utterly obsessed.

We love everything that has the alex and ani brand stamped on it – the earrings are adorable, and the new line of leather goods instantly upgrades all of our outfits. Plus, have you smelled those candles?!

But we’re sticklers for tradition, and love us a traditional stack of alex and ani bangles. Now there are tons of cool ways to accessorize your stacks – with their beaded bracelets (below), or the complimentary flat bracelets that spell out words like “LOVE” in script.

Perhaps our favorite thing about alex and ani is the way its bangles function as a perfect representation of special moments, events and facts in our life. We’ve all heard wonderful stories of family members getting the same bangle to remember a special person. We’ve got one from college graduation that evokes memories of the best times of our life (until working for Mosaic, that is!). And there are many, many ways to use alex and ani as a way to show pride – from the MLB collection to the different bangles that help support charities across the U.S.

It’s a company with solid roots we can all feel good about – and accessories that look great on everyone. What’s not to love?
