Recessionista: The Bangles

We love, love, love to stack bracelets here at the office. We always find ourselves shopping for more to add to our jewelry collection, but are forced to put them all back on the store shelves when the bill comes.

Luckily, Forever 21 has offered a chic and affordable way to accessorize any look. Once again, the discount chain comes to the rescue with these luxe-looking bangles a la Ippolta's 18kt gold stone stackables. Forever 21's alternative comes as a set of two for just $7.80! They're very pretty, and provide an A-list look for less -- reminiscent of celebs like Eva Mendes, who loves to wear stacks of bracelets with mostly everything she wears -- maxi dresses, short dresses.
