The Bad Bangle

I've been meaning to wear this dress again (previously worn here, and here), and today just seemed like the day.
In keeping with the Wonder Woman theme for August (don't forget!), I did a ton of bracelets to deflect the bullets of negativity!
Since I'm feeling positive, I only needed bracelets on one arm. Fewer bullets. Hee.

I also wanted to get another wear of these shoes in before I pack them away:
They just don't work with nylons or tights (or socks), so they are strictly bare-leg/toes wear. I haven't worn them a lot, so they are still in really good condition, even though I've had them for around 4-5 years now. Previous wearings here, here, here, here, here, and here. Yup, looks like I've worn them twice a year.

One risk with an armload of bracelets is the racket you make. I irritated my co-workers (sorry, guys!) until I figured out that I had a Bad Bangle in the mix. It's the one on the right:
It's hollow, so it really made a lot of noise against the other ones. Once I slipped it onto the other side of the cuff, it was fine and I was a lot less jangly.

Dress (Smoking Lily, consignment), cami (InWear), shoes (Franco Sarto), cuff (Club Monaco), brass and brown bangles (Aldo Accessories), ivory bangles (some import shop).


  1. I love this dress everytime you wear it! I wanna call it your "comic book" dress because The dots remind me of comic book print shading!

  2. Your dress and shoes are spectacular! Great outfit, even if it was noisy. :)

  4. I had some bangles doing that the other day too. I finally just ook them off while I was at the office. And I totally meant to take a WW pose while I was wearing them but I forgot. Darn it!

  5. As always, a gorgeous outfit and the shoes are just divine.

  6. This is adorable. I love everything you paired with it....It all goes together so nicely~ The dress is very flattering as well~ Love Heather

  7. I love the pop of yellow cami with this dress!

  8. The Bad Bangle'. that cracks me up - it's like the title of a children's book for two and a half year old's that already have 'their own ideas about how to dress'. too much!

    great outfit! i like that pop of color with the cami at the neckline.

  9. I like your bracelets. They add character to the outfit.

    The first time I tried on a bunch, their noisy jangling surprised me. Now I like the sound -- for the same reason I like the clicking of heels on a wooden floor.

  10. Megan, I love that! It's totally like comics.

    Faith, thank you so much.

    Maubrey, your blog's pop-ups annoyed the hell out of me. I won't be back.

    Tina, yeah, they can be annoying.

    Wendy, thank you!

    Heather, thanks.

    Thanks, Kelly!

    Steph, yes, it would make a great kids' book title. Thanks!

    Thanks, sb! You get used to the sounds that your clothes make (and some shoes are really noisy).
