Lucite jewelry sparkled down spring runways, so armed with my own plastic (Visa, that is), I started searching at Alexis Bittar. Scanning an entire wall of translucent accessories, I couldn’t stop looking at the gold Deco Revival Bangle. The metallic closure made it super easy to put on, and it stayed closed tightly enough to withstand a night of wild and uncoordinated dancing. Of course, $300 is a lot to spend on a plastic bracelet—but this one also had 24-karat gold triangular studs. 465 Broome St., at Greene St.; 212-625-8340.
