Arm Party

Stacking bracelets has always been a hobby of mine. I've been collecting bracelets since high school it seems like at this point (long time ago).  So I am proud to say I think I have a pretty decent, diverse collection. Recently a blogger @manrepeller (www.manrepeller.com/2011/07/start-your-own-arm-party.html) has put a name to this hobby, that myself and many girls I know participate in, naming it an Arm Party. Many blogs (www.prettyshinysparkly.com/bloggers-do-it-better-arm-party/) that I frequent have gone berserk showing off their arm parties, and even trending #armparty on twitter.  What is an arm party? How exactly do you put one together? Honestly there is no exact science or way of doing this. You just stack a bunch of different bracelets together that you want to wear or think go good together. Personally myself I seem to be drawn to oranges, browns, neutral colors with some pops of bright colors. Typical to my every day style since I love beige, taupe, browns, and anything neutral. Above and below are some photos of recent arm parties myself and my friends have put together, and some of my favorite bracelets I have to date. Of course my arm party is always growing because i just cant say no to pretty new bracelets. Some favorite places to shop for additions to my arm party are tiffany & co. (charm bracelets), saks, & neimans (david yurman), N&K designs (www.nkdesignsonline.com), the street tables of NYC, nordstroms, and recently the new Henri Bendel (http://www.henribendel.com/) in dadeland mall. Whoever had the bright idea of opening a Henri Bendel accessories boutique so close to me I have to say thank you. Thank you for the ever present temptation to want to add new additions to my collection. This is going to be a problem I already know it.
