Who Said Spikes Can't Be Girly?

Hey ladies!

Recently, my instagram and Pinterest feeds have been blowing up with pictures of arm parties, stacks of colorful bracelets usually paired with a chunky watch.

As much as I love the arm party trend, when I first saw the spiked bracelet... I hated it.

I mean, spikes?! How barbaric!

But slowly, they began to grow on me. I started to think spikes could be chic. I noticed how they could compliment other bracelets and how they come in all colors and styles. Then I realized: spikes can be delicate, and even - gasp - girly!

And now for more spiked inspiration:

 What do you guys think? Will you be joining in on this trend?
I'd love to know!

Love, Cait

  16. I just adore all these arm parties! I"m all for spikes -- but the softer ones. I have a feeling I'd injure myself with anything super sharp.
