Bloggers Do It Better - Arm Party

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

Check out all the amazing Arm Party Entries on BDIB HERE

 

I know I'm a day early as the link up posts for BDIB: Arm Party aren't due until tomorrow, but I figured I needed to post today anyway, so why not? Ha ha.  If you are unfamiliar with  Pretty Shiny Sparkly's Bloggers Do It Better Challenges you can learn about the movement here.  The challenge this time was Arm Party. I think the focus was supposed to be on DIY bracelets, but I don't have any of those so I'm including my store-bought bracelets :-).  This collection of "Arm Candy" was inspired by the color scheme of my overall outfit today: black, red, white, and grey.



 

Ensemble:
Top: Charlotte Russe
Pants: New York & Company
Shoes: Kenneth Cole Reaction
Red Heart Necklace: Vendor at Houston International Festival
Heart Necklace: Christmas Present from a friend

What I really enjoy about this outfit are the pops of red. I only included one red bracelet amongst all the black and gray ones, then the bold red shoes with black lace trim and wearing the two heart necklaces.  I love heart necklaces and I could not decide which one I wanted to wear with this look...so I wore both! I made the length of the red one choker, so that both necklaces can be seen. The shirt also comes with ties (at the bust, and around the waist). I wanted a wider belt to cinch the look so I wrapped the hanging ties around the belt (you can see this in Outfit Details)
