We were just alerted to something rather annoying happening on the Old Navy site: They're selling sweater bracelets, which Yarborough's been doing since forever. We've seen Yarborough's (right) in person a ton of times - The soft wool stretched in perfect arcs all up an arm make even the least tactile of jewelry fans want to reach out and pet each one. But Yarborough's sweater bangles go for about $45 each, and Old Navy's churning out copies (albeit, much less chunky / fluffy ones, and we'd bet they're not nearly as soft), at $7.50 a pop, which makes it pretty hard for Yarborough to compete with the look she came up with. Of course, you could probably make one with an old sweater and a cheap resin bangle for under $2, but that's a completely different post..
