better other half once chuckled as he watched me pile on bangles, and teasingly commented on my arm candy adoration. Until I laid eyes on the following images (via Refinery29), I thought I was boasting a pretty excellent collection of bracelets, and other baubles commonly associated with an “arm party.” Not so much. I am seriously coveting each and every piece adorning these ridiculously embellished wrists. Amazing, they are! Especially that gilded, skeleton thingie, which I need.
Note: The phrase “arm party” has been officially coined by the Man Repeller. Hence, the quotation marks. I was kind of surprised to find that a cutesy fashion phrase has actually been trademarked. Eyebrow raise. Shoulder shrug. Anyway, like any good grammarian, I give credit where credit is due. Before immersing myself into the personal styling blogosphere, I fancied myself to be somewhat creative—innovative even—I now realize that I am not. The world is densely populated by clothes horses, fashionfiles, & shopoholics. I am just one of many (MANY) souls willing to share her closet adventures on the interweb. C’est la vie.
