Brights and braids


I've got bracelets, braids and bright colors on my mind lately. I can't seem to get enough bracelets, especially 1930s bright plastic or simple gold plated bangles. This time of year, I feel naked without a bracelet. Warm weather is so great for showing off pretty wrist wear! As for braids, I've been *trying* to french braid my hair lately with mixed results (i.e. sometimes my braid is inside out).

sundress || hand-me-down JCrew from Lauren
shoes || vintage Italian leather sandals from No Carnations
bracelets || 1940s laminated bangles, headed to the shop today
ring || 1930s molded plastic and filigree ring with a lady and rhinestone flower

So cute--loving the shoes and those bracelets! You are inspiring me. I often have so much angst deciding which clothing I'm going to wear that I forget or don't have time to put on rings or bracelets (necklaces are easier). I'm going to work harder at this, Duff!

Love the ring! Looks like you are in for a sunny day. As I'm sick my outfit of the day consists of sweats with a frumpy white shirt and huge socks. LOL

I'm definitely more drawn to bracelets come warm weather too-- I love the way you paired the red accessories with the pretty striped dress.

Do you have any tips on identifying what era plastic bracelets are from (especially if they're not Bakelite)? Plastic bangles have been popular for decades so I never really know how old mine are!
