What’s Too Many Bracelets?



This is definitely not a new trend but it has only gained my interest recently. Stacking bracelets on top of each other is called an arm party, arm swag or just plain arm candy. I’m not really a fan of the term but it does work to describe what’s happening over there. The trend most recently caught my eye with friendship bracelets making a comeback, especially when they have been DIY‘d.


In the first picture I’m wearing a friendship bracelet Patricia gave me at Rock Werchter, a bracelet I bought at Lily And The Lady and another friendship bracelet we bought when we went on our Bonnieux Roadtrip. The best thing about these bracelets is that it reminds you of all the great times you had with your friends. Basically it is just fun. I’m still learning to stack one of top of the other but look forward to mixing and matching all my bracelets together. Reviewing this article, I see a trend among the pictures I’ve chosen and they almost all feature a spiked bracelet. Should get me one of those.
