Trend Alert-Arm Party

It’s time for an arm party!  If you’re not familiar with this, here’s an example:

You can stack as many bracelets as you feel comfortable with but the minimum you stack should be three bracelets.  The bracelets should share a similar style, so the look flows.  Make your biggest bracelet the first one you put on and stack from there.  Of course, sometimes my arm party gets out of hand and the bracelets change places at will.  If this happens, I just let them do whatever they want.

I read a great article about arm parties where the writer wondered why you would spend money on a gym membership when you can buy tons of bracelets for your arms, instead?  Priorities!

Here are some arm parties ready to go at excellent prices.  Have fun stacking!

This is my arm party for today.

I went with a toned down, classic arm party for work.  All bracelets are from Premier Designs.

Fab Without A Fortune

I’m trying something new, so I hope you like this.  Today, I’m featuring an outfit that looks fabulous but didn’t cost a fortune.  The jewelry was the most expensive part of my outfit!  I love the lace and vintage look of the dress but I feel the shorter length gives it that modern touch.  I paired this dress with nude, peep-toe wedges and added a fun black clutch.  I wore gold jewelry with a darker, brassy tone.  See the pictures for more details.  Let me know what you think about this new feature!

This dress looks really expensive but I purchased it for $30 at a giant sample sale open to the public.  Search the internet for these types of sales in your area.  Here's a similar dress you can buy here.

Fun With Florals

Florals are nothing new to the fashion scene.  However, now that the weather’s getting warmer, it puts me in the mood to wear more floral prints.  Now more than ever, you can find some incredibly cute items in beautiful floral prints.  There was a time when the only floral print items you could find looked like something from Little House on the Prairie.  Even if you don’t consider yourself a “girly girl,” I encourage you to try out floral prints to balance out an edgy outfit.  Here are my favorite items in floral prints right now.  Do you like any of these or do you absolutely hate floral prints?
