Two Stylish Kays: BDIB: A Solo Arm Party

BDIB: A Solo Arm Party

Wednesday, August 3, 2011







Top/ DKNY (Value Village)/ Jeans- Seven of Mankind (Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th)/ Shoes- Charlotte Russe (Goodwill)/ Watch- Michael Kors/ Cuff Bracelet- Dots/ Necklace-Forever 21


I contemplated if I would join in the fun this month for the Bloggers Do It Better Arm Party Challenge
What is an arm party? Well it's a term coined by the The Man Repeller, a fellow fashion blogger to describe the style of wearing multiple bracelets, watches, bangles etc. at the same time on your arms.



 Well, I hate to be a party pooper, so here is how I rocked my "solo" arm party.









You see when it comes to accessories, I have a few set pieces that I seem to wear all the time.  A necklace, earrings, watch and a bracelets is a lot of jewelry, so I usually pick one as the spotlight and keep the others a bit understated....you know to avoid competition. 


Plus I obey Coco Chanel's word of advice “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off."  Do you have an accessories style rule that you strictly follow?

  8. So simple and classic. I love the watch. I was just looking at my arm candy the other day telling myself how badly I needed either a gold or brown watch.
     
    As for accessories...I prefer big and bold. Lots of color and never matching. For example if I'm wearing green, you better bet that the accessories will be orange or something crazy like that!

  9. Chanel
    is one of the brands, which signifies glamour and its influence in the
    field of costume jewelry. As we can see now a day’s, costume jewelry is very much preferred by
    every woman who can exactly suit on their dress well

  20. I actually seem to change up my style rules every now and then. Like right now I seem to be into wearing 2 necklaces at once. I don't really do the "arm" party, but I did it for BDIB. For one it's annoying to type and do things all day with my wrist restricted and hearing clang clang clang of bangles. I love your solo arm party, though since you are double-wristing it, technically they are having a party together!
