Giveaway Package from labellemel

What are the odds of winning a giveaway? ... Slim
Now what are the odds of winning a giveaway hosted by someone more than once? ... Pretty rare I'd say!
This is actually the 2nd time I have won a giveaway from labellemel! The first time, if anyone remembers, was an epilator along with other goodies. This time around I won her "Fashion Kit" package during her Blog Revamp Giveaway.
It included this lovely chain bracelet from J.Crew (my first J.Crew item!!) & a giftcard to THEOUTNET. I haven't found the time to really search the website yet but at a glance, everything seems to be on the pricier side. Will have to choose my item(s) wisely!
Right after I took the previous photo, I went to try on the bracelet. And that's when it kind of fell apart. One of the jump rings used to attach the lobster claw clasp had a bit of an opening so the pieces just slipped right off. Good thing I have pliers at home from DIYing bracelets.
I cinched those jump rings with all my might. Hopefully it won't come loose again! Had I not gotten the itch to DIY and bought some tools, I would have declared this shiny bracelet certified, unfixable.

Although I really love accessories, I'm at a loss of how to pair this chunky style chain bracelet. It hangs loose when I have my arms by my side. So it probably won't be something I would grab for on a day to day basis.
What do you think? What would you wear this with? and When?

    i agree with denysia yu that a simple white top and skinny jeans would look great with a statement bracelet.
