Bangle Bracelets

I don't wear a lot of jewelry. I used to wear more when I was younger, but I tend to find it more annoying than anything. I rarely wear earrings anymore because I am on the phone so much and they poke into my head. And I only have two watches that I alternate wearing - a nice one and an acrylic Toy watch. And I only wear a ring on one finger on each hand at the most.

I am liking bangle bracelets more and more. Either alone as a statement piece or clanking together on my arm. I've seen a lot of clear acrylic bracelets lately and I liked the style. I bought a few different sizes on eBay which is probably the best place for a deal.

To glam up a simple top and jeans, I got 3 of these crystal bracelets and wear them stacked together on one arm. I bet I could mix these with the clear bangles. These came from Target.
This is a very chunky bracelet from Dolly Dagger in the UK. I don't think they have the pink version, but they do have an aqua version with pink crystals.

This is a vintage bracelet that I also found on eBay when I was hunting around for the clear bangles. I love pink and green together and this has a retro feel that could also be very contemporary, depending on what you wear it with. It's very graphic. has a ton of fashion jewelry online, much more than in the store. What is great is that you can search by color but I like to randomly click around to see what I can find. I just got this chunky wood version which I think will give a nice textural contrast to the Fall clothes coming in.

I also like this feather option. From what I have seen, feathers are going to be big, big, BIG this Fall. The color is great for all the Fall clothes, the texture is there, plus they are very feminine. Target had headbands with feathers too, that I may need to go back and get.

And because these are only around $8, you don't have to make a huge investment.

The feathers are very striking.
