I was wearing this when a coworker said, "I found this amazing-looking website called RTR!"
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I put this on my Unlimited queue for the heck of it. It was never, ever something I would have thought I'd wear, but it looked so neat and so "not me" that I figured, "What the heck? Go for it!" I'm so glad I did!" It fits wonderfully, in that, I have very small wrists and this did not feel cumbersome, clunky, chunky, or seem as though it was going to take a plunge off my wrist and onto the floor at any time, so, for me, the seeming-smaller-than-expected is a good thing. The panther, though encrusted in ultra-sparkly stones, seems life-like, reclined on your wrist and looking up as though her nap's been interrupted or as she's leisurely surveying her surroundings. Her paws and tail are delicate and life-like as well. A couple of the gems seem "off" as though they'd fallen out and been replaced and weren't original, but I only noticed because I couldn't keep my eyes off it! No one else would have known! This is truly a work of art. It honestly looks like something you'd see in history museum or art museum that had been found in a tomb or palace of a lost civilization. I actually wore it to work with a Calvin Klein leather-detailed sweater jacket and ruched T paired with dyed denim and snakeskin-print wedges. This bracelet turned an otherwise blase Wednesday into quite a bit of fun and it was a real conversation piece when a break during a long training session had a coworker saying, "I found this amazing-looking website called 'RTR.'" I was able to show her my bracelet and tell her I had photos of several other items I've rented from RTR I could show her as well, in fact, some right in my cubicle. Before long all six women there were insisting on knowing what RTR was and how it worked. When it comes to this work-of-art-turned-jewelry, don't think about it just rent it!
