I heart The ROPES


Where to begin?! First of all, I love The ROPES for several reasons. A. They are handmade in Maine B. I love how you can wear just one, or layer them up to mix and match C. They have amazing brass/gold hardware which I love D. They are unique and one of a kind, and last but not least in the very bit, E. They are the brainchild of my good friend Shana Aldrich Ready (we go back about 25 years- jeeze we sound old)!

I was lucky enough to have drinks and dinner at Zapoteca the other night with Shana to catch up and 'talk some shop' - oh, you know, blogging, learning more about her amazing business, being amazingly stylish Mainers and much more :) Shana started The ROPES on somewhat of a whim. While having an extensive background in fashion design and a graduate of RISD, after moving back to Maine, she was playing around with some ropes and decided to put some bracelets together. Well, after hitting up a few boutiques in Maine and introducing them to The ROPES, people and shops now come knocking on her door for more orders! They can now be found all over the U.S (you can buy online at Spaces in Kennebunkport) and has some great press as of late- like ELLE, Style Pantry and Refinery 29! So needless to say, I was eager to hear more about her successes, and she spoiled me with some amazing samples. Which means, a lucky reader gets the chance to win one (more on that in a minute.)


So many awesome colors and textures (and great bag too!)




I LOVE them stacked up!

There are a few different styles, some with big chunky hardware and some are a bangle style.



This is my new favorite, it is several thinner ropes- and my favorite reds and blues!



Ahh! I love them all!



So here are the deets on how to win the one above!

- Please leave a comment on my blog letting me know you want to win The ROPES!
- Please 'Like' my Facebook page and follow me on Twitter
- Please 'Like' The ROPES Facebook page and follow them on Twitter
- To get another chance to win, please pass along this post and help share! Tweet, retweet, post on Facebook, tell your friends- whatever works. After you share, post another comment on my blog letting me know you did, and you will get another chance to win! I will pick the winner on Thursday, March 29th! Good luck.

So, there you have it, a great friend, awesome bracelets and representing our great state of Maine! Win-win-win!
