Arm Candy for the Arm Party

There’s a new term floating around in fashion blogger circles...“arm party”...and you’re invited :) No really, you are! Kristina of Pretty Shiny Sparkly has posted a new challenge for Bloggers Do It Better members inviting them to throw their own arm party.

I love bracelets, but have never worn more than 2 or 3 at a time, and I don’t wear them on both arms. I used to watch Rachel Zoe’s show and see her arm parties wishing I could pull off that look. I’m sure I could, but it’s a little out of my comfort zone. In my corner of the world I’ve only seen teenagers and young girls wearing tons of bracelets on their arms. However, after seeing Kristina’s and The Man Repeller’s arm party, I thought, What the heck? It’s time to get my party on!

I've started out slowly with this challenge because I am a conservative party thrower. Ok, I’ll just admit it, I’m a little boring. I was in a pink and silver mood today, so I threw on these three bracelets - a silver Tiffany bracelet, a double-strand beaded bracelet (my own design), and a woven bracelet I bought at the swap meet (pictured above).

After writing up the post about watches the other day, I wish I could offer up some new pretty arm candy to wear for this arm party challenge - like this bracelet watch from Skagen UK...

Looking for some arm candy to throw your own arm party? Here are some bracelets that I thought would be cute to wear all together...

I’m looking forward to throwing an arm party every day for the next few days before it’s time to finalize my post for submission to Kristina's latest challenge. In fact, I may just bust out the jewelry making kit and come up with some new bracelet designs :)
