I wasn’t jesting. Now, before you roll your eyes and click off the page, please note that this is serious. I’ve collected a lot of things that remind me of Xena, true, but they also happen to be extremely adorable and/or suitable for a freaking awesome warrior. I’m grouping these by category instead of my usual item list, because, well, I want to.
Let’s face it. Xena knows how to rock the arm accessory. Here are some of my favorites:
I love this bracelet. I would buy 3 and stack them. Just sayin'.
Leather Buckle Bracelet
This is the bracelet I bought at target that you can thank for this entire post. Isn't she lovely?
Hammered Cuff Bracelet
If leather isn't really your thing, this might be more up your alley. Stunning. Also, can we agree that Target is rocking this trend right now?
Brown Stone Circle Cuff Bracelet
Lovely. Reminds me of Xena, but also something Gabrielle might wear.
I love this one. And it is more a subtle nod to Xena than anything.
Multi Strand Cuff Bracelet
This cuff is awesome. Suitable for a warrior princess or a rock and roll king.
Leather Cuff Bracelet with Chains and Stones
Who says girly girls can't rock the Xena look? This has rhinestones!
CALYPSO Hammered Cuff
Xena wears something like this later in the series. I'm convinced someone at Target is an avid Xena fan.
Warrior Wrist Cuff
I am not imagining this trend. While not from Target, this is called the WARRIOR wrist cuff. COME ON!
2) Sandals. These selections are even more subtle. They may only be Xena-esque to me. And that’s okay.
Taleah Embellished Flat Sandals
I hope the gladiator sandal never goes out of style ever. I love all iterations of this idea.
All Black Knee High Gladiator Sandal
While these are less Xena, more Roman (her ENEMIES), they are still reminiscent of the show and therefore totally bad-ass.
Wera Braided Flat Sandals
I really love these a lot. I might buy them next time I find myself conveniently in a Target.
Tribal Dance Gladiator
These sandals and especially their name remind me so much of the Amazons. Win.
Wandis Thong Sandals
A little less hardware for those of you who dislike studs.
Tonic Stud Gladiator Sandal
These have the shoe equivalent of tire spikes. And I love them.
Palesa Cutout Sandals
These also come in a pretty silver for those of you who are so inclined.
Titania Flat Thong Sandals
Speaking of silver, check out these babies! They're gorgeous and "Titania" is just a cool name.
In conclusion, I’ve realized that all one needs to do is go to target and find everything Xena-inspired ever. Who knew?
I hope you guys have a great weekend and that this didn’t make you want to quit me. I never promised I wasn’t a nerd.
