The Life of the Arm Party

Arm party

If you have been hibernating in a cave somewhere for the past couple years, there's a huge party going on in the fashion world. It's called the "arm party." Well, actually, there are a ton of “parties” going on, and you are invited too. Just do a search for #armparty on Twitter, Instagram, or Tumblr and you’ll discover a whole lot of partying going on!

Throw on a few bracelets and voila - you've just created a party on your arm. You can mix it up with one more thing, which I consider the life of the party: A stylish watch.

Why is a watch the life of the party, you ask? Well, it reminds us that life is just ticking away, so have fun and celebrate it to the fullest. A stylish watch can also be the focal point and make for an interesting conversation piece. After all, the life of the party likes to be the center of attention!

There are so many different styles of watches now, it's sometimes hard for me to settle on one to buy. I tend to gravitate towards fun and unique watches. I remember back in 8th grade and Swatch watches were really popular. I used to wear two very colorful Swatch watches on one wrist. I really wish I could have kept them because they would be great collector’s items. The company is still around today, and this colorful watch from their spring/summer collection has been added to my wish list...

I was browsing the UK based site, Collectables, and really like this violet and white beauty by Ice Watch...

White and Violet Ice Watch

Collectables actually has a pretty good selection of ladies watches for every budget. However, if budget is no problem, perhaps the classic style of the Rolex Lady-Datejust can become the life of the arm party...

  1. I am a HUGE fan of the arm party trend from the last couple of years. In fact, I have a predetermined set of bracelets that I wear everyday. I do like switching up my watches though and wearing different stylish watches!

    1. Marie,

      Oh, I should start planning out my arm party in advance! That's a great idea because I sometimes take too long trying to pick out what bracelets to wear with what :) Thanks!
