First Dries, now this. Here’s to a different type of glam, less about shiny shit and crystals, more about embracing tribal trends. Perfectly uniform stacked in fours, prints contrasting against one another. I feel like I’m writing a really bad poem, awkward love letter, or expositional scene for a low budget porn flick. You can choose. My ultimate point is this: here’s a pretty sturdy try at perfecting the Fall-proof arm party. If not because the cuffs will work and fit over long sleeves, than most certainly because they won’t pull sweaters. Poor, poor threads.

    It's *difficult* to say no to shiny shit and crystals, but it *is* a good idea to embrace the tribal-ness for the arm party… great tip ;)

    This has to be Bryan Boy I recognize that Jason Wu bag!! Either way I am all for the tribal arm party, especially someone with small wrists like me, the large bangles just don't work.

    Yay yay yay for understanding that wrist candy (in your case, arm party)can really F up sweaters! I have ruined so many dresses, knits, etc. Now I am not saying I will stop wearing these types of jewels on my wrist BUT I love that you offered a sweater friendly option!
