Tearing through new issues of magazines when they arrive at my door is kind of my favorite thing to do. Call it a hobby, a time to relax or an escape to another place, paging through fashion magazines fresh off the press makes me happy.
I hardly even got past the first glance at the cover of the November InStyle, when I fell in love with Gwen's stack of chunky, sparkly bangles.
Gwen's sporting a hefty pile of Lorraine Schwartz, which is just a tad (ions) out of my price range. Lorraine makes gorgeous pieces that celebrities love to wear and she has a fun aesthetic that can be worn with many different looks.
Though Gwen here is in a gorgeous couture gown, she could easily be wearing that stack with a boyfriend blazer, skinny jeans and booties for drinks. Or with a 3/4 length sleeve t shirt tucked into a maxi skirt for a brunch date. Or with a favorite LBD that needs an update.
Either way, they are fun and could make a statement with anything you are wearing. And although Lorraine's bangles are out of our reach, I found a designer who is.
Chamak by Priya Kakkar has an extensive selection of crystal studded bangles that are colorful, versatile and perfect for stacking up your arm. And with price tags that are within budget ($36-$145) and some coming as sets, it makes shopping for them fun.
Here are some stacks I put together from the collection. Click on individual links to browse or purchase...
From top: Two slim bracelets in blue, white, and gold, Wide bracelet with Blue Circles, slim orange and yellow bracelets, Blue striped bracelet
From Top: Purple and White Striped, Set of Two Gold and White, Set of Two Pink and Gold, Set of two gray and gold
Any of these stacks would make my day and make some of my tired looks so much better.
