welcome to my arm party!!! =) this bloggers do it better challenge is all about the arm candy. i NEVER used to wear bracelets…let alone bangle bracelets! they were always too big for my wrists but now it’s the more the merrier! and now that stores like h&m carry sizes in bangle bracelets, i am hooked! i also used to NEVER wear gold but i have been on a gold kick for a few years now (prob more like seven years). i’m still waiting for the chunky silver tiffany jewelery to come back in style so i can wear it too. actually…with this arm candy trend, i may sneak one of my old ones in one of these days!

    ooooo Jenn! Your bangles and bracelets are divine (I can never go past that beautiful rock your rockin’ either!!!) – I have to say … I visited the bloggers do it better site to see other girls posts on this and although ALL of them were lovely, I do think your’s was the best (in terms of my favourite style).
    p.s you’ll be happy to know that chunky Tiffany’s silver has still not gone ‘out’ of fashion in Australia so lots of girls are still rockin’ it down here! πŸ™‚

    Love all the gold. I have same problem with bangle sizing (tiny wrists) – I wish I knew that H&M did sizing – I was just in Europe but didn’t even bother look in the bangles section. Sigh.
    Love the watch too – I just bought a gold watch and am super excited about it.

    Love your arm party! I never, ever used to wear gold but now that’s all I wear! Gahd the ebay chain looks good plain. I think after the DIY linkup I might take it apart and wear it as is. πŸ˜‰ sshhhhh

    I never used to wear gold either. Silver is more my style. BUT lately I’ve been coveting gold jewelry. And those bangles you are wearing are so IT!
