MR x Bauble Bar

May 16, 2012
Bauble Bar bracelets, Theyskens’ Theory mermaid dress

This week in seamless collaboration nations, I build a big fat slew of arm parties for the folks at Bauble Bar and suggest that you, the reader, ponder the notion of purchase. By that I most certainly mean: drop it like it’s hot. At $50 a set, you receive five bracelets hand-picked by my freaky ass and then wear them all together until the mass covered by the bracelets in question on your wrist is officially one shade lighter than the rest of your arm. It makes for a beautiful and irrevocable print. The relationship with Bauble Bar started in part due to a Wall Street Journal video on layering bracelets that I volunteered my marginal expertise for about a month ago and then continued to cultivate itself through everyone’s favorite, Instagram, see: crystal bars. While I have your attention, let’s also open the floor to discuss the evolution of the arm party and whether or not it’s appropriate that we maybe, just maybe, shelf it for a short while. The terminology, not the sentiment. Never the sentiment. Okay now, your turn, discuss and shop.

    Ever since I discovered your blog, I'm kinda obsessing over arm parties. My arms are having parties 24/7. I say arm, you say party.

  • McKenzie

    So cute! I love having a stack of bracelets on my arm, it works with so much!

  • Ms.Fashionista

    I got an email about the collab and almost died! Took you enough time to finally create your own arm party haha. I love the different colors all put together. Unique but still simple.


  • Gabrielle @ LookSharpSconnie

    I'm a wee bit torn by your question.

    On the one hand, I've always hated dainty jewelry – and really loved bunches of obnoxiously chunky stuff. So on that proverbial hand, I kind of like the term itself for its ability to kind of outwardly joke at that notion. It's also a fun idea, like you're always celebrating something.

    But you don't need the term to accomplish the aesthetic (as you mentioned), and I do see its downsides. Besides being pretty over-used, it kind of negates the importance of each individual piece – which doesn't necessarily have to be a fault of the "sentiment", but does go hand in hand (lots of hands here) with the collective term.

    Then again, I'm trying to think of how to refer to the "mass" without ignoring the individual. I think the issue may be more a fault of the English language than anything.

    In conclusion, all in all, in sum, as such – all that above text really proves is that I like to talk.


  • Jannine Frend

    yay to the armparty, especially for summer!
    i hate it when its cold because everything gets jammed under sweaters, jackets and other warm-giving-garments. and not only that, it goes unnoticed.
    soooooo, yes. that.
    XO Jannine

  • Hannah

    Okay, I'm going to have to go ahead and order one. This is a great collaboration, and one that I can actually afford as a mere teenager! That dress looks beautiful, by the way.

    Just ordered a set. What a great pick-me-up for a Wednesday afternoon. I put down that I have a Petite wrist. I hope I'm right – well, it's Petite for Chicago and the Midwest. :) I can't wait to wear my Arm Party for work when I give presentations – that will jazz up a Power Point for sure!

  • The_Unemployed_Stylist

    Was in the process of ordering a set for myself and 3 friends. Unfortunately they don't ship to Canada!!! Tisk tisk!

    I am in dire need celine outlet shop of a new bag, and celine bag with summer literally knocking Celine Luggage Tote on our door, I'm going to need a good tote for the pool, beach and general carrying (don't you find yourself lugging more stuff around in the summer? )#). I mentioned Deux Lux before, when Oprah put one of their bags on her Favorite Things list. Well lucky me, I ended up getting that Celine Luggage bags bag for Christmas and I love it. It's sturdy, roomy and fun. So when I stumbled on the line's Celine Boston Bag beach totes, I was excited at the prospect of having a little sparkle with me at the beach.
