Recycled Trunk Show

I know I've posted about Olio United before as I'm a huge fan of the concept behind the website (made with love, ethically responsible). Currently they're having a trunks show of recycled clothing and jewelry! It looks as though designers have taken apart used goods and rebuilt them into new, gorgeous pieces. The trunk sale is only 4 days long, ending on Thursday, and all orders ship free within the U.S. Some of these pieces are quite expensive, but I've picked the most affordable designs that I would wear in a heartbeat.
This would be a great piece for a cool spring night.
Bella Shrug $85
The detailing on this tank make it very unique and that color is so striking.
Hopeless Romantic $68
A feminine twist to a menswear piece and that color would go w/just about anything.
Two Way Top $65
This sweet little necklace is delicate but kind of tough.
Glories Strung Like Beads $47.50
This industrial looking piece is actually a watch (look hard and you can see the seahorse!). I have no clue how it works but it's pretty stinking cool.
Modern Seahorse Watch $59
Alright, so this trunk sale ends Thursday and I have to say I'm kind of smitten with that watch. What do you think about it (the watch, that is)? Have you ever seen anything like it?

I have never seen anything like that watch. This may be a dumb question, but how does it tell time? It baffles me to look at! Love how sleek it is. What a i really love is that necklace!

i don't know how it works blair! maybe the seahorse comes apart and spins around (that might be weird though).
