BDIB: Arm Party

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

I would have done some much better if this had been an eye candy or ear candy (ear candy? yeah that doesn't sound right) challenge. I just don't stack bracelets much, and I don't have a lot of options to choose from because I'm much more of an earrings kinda girl. I'm gradually introducing more necklaces into my accessories wardrobe, but bracelets - especially groups of them - are not my forte.

All this is leading up to me asking you not to hate me too much for the fact that only some of this arm candy actually belongs to me. It's about half & half my roommate's and I can't tell you where she got any of it. Sorry!

And you probably noticed that I skipped over the maxi skirt BDIB Challenge.1 - I actually don't own a maxi skirt, and 2 - the last time I tried to make that work with one of my maxi dresses it was just a great big disaster. I think this challenge went moderately well but to check out some amazing examples of arm candy, go over to Pretty Shiny Sparkly's round-up post!

Found this through BDIB. I'm the opposite, I have lots of necklaces, but I never seem to buy as many bracelets. I'm trying to get those in more. I also didn't do the Maxi one... I always trip in long skirts and tend to look like a six year old playing dress-up.

I adore that scroll-work bracelet. It's so pretty! :)

@two birds -Thanks! That MK watch is the first expensive one I've ever owned.

@ellemck1 - I love necklaces but seem to have an issue figuring out if they go or clash with my earrings, lol. That probably just means I'm not trying hard enough but at least I'm taking baby steps! And I love that scroll-work bracelet, even though I don't wear it nearly enough. It was a gift from a coworker :)
