How I Like to "Arm Party"!

January 4, 2012

Good evening dolls! I hope you're having a fabulous start to 2012.

One of my FAVORITE jewelry looks I have loved for a while is the "arm party" (a phrase coined by the fashion blogger The Man Repeller....visit her site here!) If you're not familiar with this trend, it involves stacking up bracelets...lots and lots of bracelets...and wearing them all at once. Wear as many or as few as you want, mix different textures/colors/widths, wear them on one arm or both...the rules are up to you!

I had been on a hunt for a while to find the perfect bracelets to make my own arm party. I was so excited to find some ADORABLE bracelets at H&M! You really can't beat the price either...most were $3 and the highest (for the bracelets w/ rhinestones) was $8. So without further ado, here is a picture of my OOTD from last week with my arm party and a few pictures of how I arm party...

Top: H&M
Pants: H&M
Ballet Flats: Wanted

And here is a close-up of the "arm party" on my right wrist...

Here I am wearing 4 different bracelets, all from H&M.
Sometimes both of my arms want in on the fun so I like to have an arm party on both wrists....

This arm party also includes 4 bracelets from H&M.

Another variation of the arm party? Adding a watch!!!

My Fossil watch likes to join in on the fun so I like to put it right in the middle of the arm party shenanigans!
All bracelets from H&M.

ANY color bracelets work for your arm party. I also love wearing brown & gold...

Middle rhinestone bracelet from Stein Mart...other 2 bracelets from H&M.
I love the look of rhinestones with the leather/rope braclets.

5 H&M bracelets! Don't hestitate to wear as many as you want. I also like the look of bracelets with charms/beads like a few of these have!

Finally I wanted to leave you with a collage I made of some GREAT bracelets in stores now (at all price points!) that you can mix and match to create your very own arm party!
