An Extensive Look at The Arm Party

June 16, 2011
Bracelets by Shashi

I like to decorate my arms. I like the share the decorative conclusions with you. I like to eat chalk. Not really, but I do like glue. Just kidding. Not.

In today’s post, I offer a more extensive look at some of the diverse arm parties that flood my wrists. So diverse some aren’t even parties. They’re gatherings. Or soirees. Or dinner dates. In some instances, they’re ragers or frat parties. 

While you’ve likely seen all the below images in my insta-feed, you often ask where the baubles hail from. Today I I’ll tell you. After all, bracelets are about friendship. And this right here is a friendship. Actually it’s a sisterhood. And sisters should have matching wrists. So even if you don’t pick up identical materials to create a Siamese arm party of your own, what’s mine is yours. Except for that Love Bracelet. That shit is mine and mine only. Sorry!

Arm-y of arm bands. Get it? Get it? Uniform chic. Bracelets by DANNIJO.
The prison party, called the prison party because the single knot bracelet looks like barbed wire to my eye. My eye is a little stupid. (From left: DANNIJO, Madewell, Hermes.) Eyeball (not to be confused with the ones on my face) purchased in Turkey.
The friendship arm, bracelets by DANNIJO and Madewell
On the cheap chunker by Forever 21.
The Monochrome Party, all by DANNIJO
The International Arm party. (From left: red and pink string bracelets bought in Paris, rose gold and gun metal skulls from London, by LeivanKash, chain bracelet by Whistles.)
The Arm Soirees, bracelets by Mr. Kate.
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, my grandmother’s arm party.

Bird or Bust. Not so diverse. Sue me.
Double Fisting. Photo by Lindsey Belle.
Glitter ‘n’ Shit, bracelets by DANNIJO, Shashi
And finally, I conclude with the finger party.
Because I don’t discriminate against other limbs and every inch o’me has a fundamental love for excessive layering. 
Ok, people. I showed you mine, now you show me yours!

    OMG YOUR arm party inspired me to do the same…i'm still working on my collection but so excited to know who makes those snake bracelets (Mr. Kate, apparently).

    Can our arms link up in mutual fraternization at a REAL LIFE PARTY?!?! That would be cool… I feel like you're the kind of person that would push unsuspecting people into pools or "pants" people when they're holding stuff with me…


  • caviar taste

    oh, and I'm beyond obsessed with the love bracelet. kind of NEED one.

    we. are. kindred. spirits. I just had the YSL Arty Ring in coral sent to me… can't stop can't stop can't stooooop. i feel like a six year old who forgot to put back her grandma's costume jewelry. it's hard to do anything with my hands a lot of the time, other than type or put on / take off pieces of jewelry..

  • Jessie

  • fshnonmymind

    Okay, my arm party is no way near as jumpin' as yours and I would kill for any of your Dannijo pieces, but I had a small get-together in this recent post:

  • New York Don’t Leave Me

    Love that your grandma is down with the arm party! Too cute!

  • Mariel Villanueva

    Your grandma is a m-repeller too? =) Cool! Love the idea: arm party. Will work on that.

  • Priscilla

    arm candyyyyy!:)

    you can see lots on me on my blog:))

  • Ylenia {ambitieuse}

    I really love it! I've always liked stacked arms, but before they were in trend… everyone would tease me by telling me I looked like a PIÑATA ^^
    Anyways, I adore the Dannijo bracelets, but they are totally out of my reach… so my objective now, is to make a bunch of friendship bracelets by myself buy some rhinestone chains and maybe from far, they will look as awesome as yours :P

  • BeLighter

    I'm not into over accessorize, but I'm loving each and every of these images! So colourful and cute!

  • Molly

    duuude, you didn't write down where your lovely, beautiful watches are from! can i ask where they're from??

    Leandra! I totally NEED to know where your grandma party-goers are from!!! I'm guessing the pretty coloured ones are from Turkey, but where is the top one from? And that Cartier watch… <3

  • DeefromCG

    Dear Manrepeller, hard question:
    I was just wondering what your response would be if I told you I am repelled by your clothes (and i very much am) not because I am a chauvinistic male who thinks the clothes women wear should only be previews of what she will look like without said clothes, but because they are gaudy, unrefined, and completely lacking in artisanal merit. I know you dont particularly care about my opinion on style (a completely subjective field), and I dont expect you to. I was just curious if you ever get negative feedback on stylistic quality of your wardrobe, independent of its sexual implications. I am a successful design student in an elite program and feel I have enough insight to pronounce your clothing as terrible and ugly.

  • Natalia

    I have to say, accessorising is one department in which I am severely lacking…thanks for some inspiration!

  • Skihäschen

    i love your bracelets…
    above all the bracelet from cartier :)

  • The Fashion Twice

    i lvoe wearing lots of bracelets!

  • duckalicious

  • Alex Kay

    YOU'RE SO FUNNY! Seriously, great idea for a post though!

  • FIDM Fashion Club

    I love it that you are not into the "less is more" trend because I believe that more is more! You can never have enough glam and braclets on one arm and I love it that your grandma also sports the trend! Awesome ;)

  • DNA (designers+artists)

    Love the Dannijo army and everything else, no one layers like you do. :)

  • Anonymous

    Hmm…I don't think men pay enough attention to jewelry for this to be man-repelling. I have some ideas, though. How about this? An oversized mumu with pajama bottoms and crocs.

  • Ploy

    I'm liking the "evil eye" charm bracelets you have on. Also, my friend is friends (I know, confusing right) with Lei Van Kash before she was a big hit and lemme tell ya, it was hard for me to keep refraining myself from stealing his skull necklace.

  • Sarah

    this is an arm party I would love to attend!! Definitely going to show my arm parties on Advocates of Love..stay tuned.

  • La.Mademoiselle.X

    love your the way you party… and your grandma rocks so much!!

    we go back to the beginning of the Cartier Love bracelets story. Cartier Bracelet are one of the most singularly iconic pieces of

    jewelry in history.They’re highly recognizable, highly covetable, and highly symbolic. The authentic Love bracelet, on the left, is smooth and even with crisp screws stamped

    right into the gold with no compromise of the surrounding metal.Each cartier bracelet represents a permanent of love.

  • ebru can

    I love the way you layer your rings and bracelets!

    I really like it that you’re not in to the “less is much moreInch trend because I have faith that more is much more! You cant ever have sufficient fashion and braclets on a single arm and that i like it that the grandmother also sports the popularity! Awesome

  • lowongan kerja

    I had been just wondering what your response could be basically said I’m repelled from your clothes (and that i greatly am) not because I’m a chauvinistic male who thinks the garments women put on must only be previews of the items she may be like without stated clothes, but since they’re gaudy, unrefined, and completely missing in artisanal merit.
