Amusing, isn’t it, how kids today think they invented the whole armful-of-bracelets thing? Especially since: cruise-ship heiress and provocateur Nancy Cunard, as photographed by Man Ray in 1926? Which was, like, practically a century ago?
And Renee Perle, lover and muse of epochal French photograhper Jacques Henri Lartigue?
And I’m sorry, but also: Borderline era Maddy? Lest we forget? Perhaps when we were young, we too thought everything was our idea, but I don’t think we did: Gen X-ers, sandwiched as we were between two of the most self-loving generations our nation has ever seen—boomers and millennials—have only upon reaching our seriously grown up years stopped selling ourselves short. (Which only seems right, considering how awesome we are.) As you may or may not imagine, this is a topic about which I could go on.
And on. But today we are here to discuss stacked bracelets—ones that might help one pull off the look while also looking like an adult.* Also, everything here is under $75. This cute little number would cost like $200 if Isabel Marant was selling it. It comes in black too, but I somehow feel like the red is more special.
I like how the little nugget beads here come off all rock and roll, only softer.
Nothing beats a nice pre-mixed stack of bangles, especially when somebody with a much better eye than mine has done such a good job of mixing metals.
From our new BFFs at Maiden Nation: this bracelet is handmade by HIV-positive women in Etiopia using melted-down bullet casings and recycled metals. Talk about a guilt-free purchase: I might feel bad if I don’t buy one.
I’m throwing this evil eye in here too, because an evil eye is just good juju.
And this is for all the lovers of itsy little skulls, as experience has taught me you are out there.
The only way I could possibly love this excellently graphic ethnic bracelet more is is if it were a top.
Just ever-so-punk and not a tiny bit more.
