It's All in the Wrist

A trend I've been gushing over lately is the Arm Party Trend. Don't know what an Arm Party is? Consider Urban Dictionary's definition:

arm party; noun: when somebody (usually/hopefully a girl) wears a bunch of different bracelets on the same arm, sometimes using many bright colors or different materials/metals is called an arm party. The more the merrier! That girl with the huge arm party thinks she's Ke$ha, her bracelets weigh more than she does!

If you're interested in building an arm party of your own, the best tip I can give you is to find or make bracelets that reflect your personal style. Don't really know where to start? Check out these recommendations:
  • For a clean, girly, and sophisticated look, try a boyfriend watch, a dainty chain bracelet like this one, a jelly cobra bracelet like this one, something sparkly, and/or a few homemade friendship bracelets (see my post about those here).
  • For a laid-back and beachy look, try stacking a few leather bracelets like this one.
  • And, if you're feeling crafty, I would recommend checking out the tutorials on the Honestly WTF Blog. They are seriously amazing.

wow i guess i've been having an arm party all summer.. mine is no where near as sophisticated as these pictures but they all were either collected on travels, presents from friends and even a 'best' one... (a matching 'friends' bracelet is having its own party with my bestie!)
such a cool trend though, i finally feel in style! haha :)

The idea of "Arm Party" is really very good. I think, it will work a lot.
