I found these photos of gorgeous stacks of Bakelite bangles on Flickr, and just had to post them up. I love big chunky bracelets like these, but I can’t possibly justify them in my suitcase and it’s not a great idea to wear bangles when swing dancing, so I don’t own any at all. *sigh*  Another “when-I-stop-travelling-and-settle-down-somewhere” daydream. Here’s Dita rocking some Bakelite:

Repetition Bracelet

I love that costume jewelry is trendy at the moment! All it takes is one piece to add a bit of shine to any top to give it a boost. Perfect for the wintery holiday season, this fantastic Maslodesign Repetition Bracelet ($76) is a great way to show off your wrist as well as distract children and pet! Beautifully handcrafted, Maslodesign is a melange of vintage, modern and smart style.
