A Few of My Favorite Things.... Arm Party!!!


Today, link up with Lauren for High Five for Friday!




This series I have started really has me thinking this week. What are my favorite things? Obviously, I had to include my red pants (check it out from Wednesday!). but, what can I add to this list? Anyone who knows me, wouldn’t let today’s post come as a surprise. I LOVE Jewelry. I like all kinds of jewelry too. Cheap, expensive, gold, silver, bracelets, rings, earrings, necklaces….I DON’T discriminate.

My most recent jewelry obsession is the “arm party” or, “arm candy” (potato, potahto, tomato, tomahto,). I had been looking for a few cute bracelets to add to a fake rose gold watch I bought back in the summer, when Molly from the Still Being Molly blog posted a photo on instagram of her arm party. She is one of my favorite fashion bloggers and I love her looks! I had to get on with the show and find the perfect bracelets.

After careful bracelet research (what I do in my spare time, scary right?) I realized there are tons to choose from. SO…..in case you have been wanting to start your own arm party OR feel motivated after reading this post, I have a few finds that are low budget (my favorite). I have compared them to some beautiful, more expensive choices, just so you know what is out there!

After a sale on Forever 21, my arm party cost a total of $27!

These are the four bracelets I bought and their costlier counterparts

Betsey Johnson $55




Forever 21 $5.80

Fantasy Jewelry Box $44.95



The following two I bought in gold, but F21 just has them left in silver. (thought I’d post them too because some people like silver arm parties and I would never think about discriminating J)

Last but not least....

As you can see…. My arm party got a little out of control, so I had to add my gold mesh bracelet to my right hand. I paired it with a stretch-y pearl bracelet and had a cute look on my right arm too! I posted a picture of it on my right arm so you could see it up close…













Did I mention I love cheap jewelry? I thought so…

What do you think? I think you should head straight to Forever 21 and start planning your own arm party!
