Whether you are a fan of the young artist or critical of his non traditional persona, one thing is for sure: He has the ability to bring people together from all socioeconomic backgrounds, and that is to be commended.

Lace by Tanaya Long Tassel Cuff Ring

Laced by Tanaya Tassel Cuffs

 

The first time I came across this brand on instagram about a year ago, I immediately fell in love. When it comes to insanely dope women's acessories, Lace by Tanaya is hands down one of my absolute favorites. Beyond the gorgeous array of disticnt offerings, the detailing is ah-mazing. Side note: I was happy to see that Beyonce was even Laced by Tanaya as she adorned a custom statement neck peice that in Lemonade. Needless to say this is a brand to know. The Long Tassel Lace Cuff ring is available in both gold and silver and is available to purchase directly from the Laced by Tanaya website.
