A Bracelet That Gets You Drunk Is Every Girl's Dream

Ladies, lo and behold, the ultimate fashion accessory for getting your booze on has finally come to fruition. New York designer Cynthia Rowley has created a bangle bracelet that doubles as a flask. If only Sex and the City were still around -- this would have replaced Carrie Bradshaw's "Carrie" necklace -- it would be the Cosmo bangle. Instead, it has a much less cooler name -- the flask bangle -- but we'll let it slide because of Cynthia's ingenuity and the fact that she made every girl's dream come true: Jewelry can now get you drunk.

Made of stainless steel, the patent-pending flask bangle doesn't come cheap. At $225 for one, it's more expensive than a bottle of Blue Label, but just think about the money you'll save on drinks, especially in Miami, where we have places like LIV and Story charging an arm and a leg -- not a bracelet -- for something to sip on. According to the website the interior diameter of the bracelet is 2 3/8 inches. Think of all the great uses us girls will have for this: first dates, boring dates, a bad day at work, an unexpected breakup, meeting the parents for the first time, babysitting -- the possibilities are endless.

While there are probably more important things to spend $225 of your hard-earned money on -- booze, a dinner at Cypress Room, martini, booze, health insurance, and booze -- you can't help but feel that your wrist has been missing something this whole time that you didn't even know it needed.

As the website's quirky tag line states, "Necessity is the mother of invention." Clever, Cynthia Rowley... too bad she wasn't around during the Prohibition era.
