My Arm Charms Tribute & Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me link up

July 7, 2015

Many of you may have noticed for months now that I have been collaborating and loving some arm candy from a special boutique named My Arm Charms. I reached out to Leslie the shop owner months ago about a collaboration and she didn’t think I made a fit for her shop as far as collaborating until she saw my “Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me” link ups and finally e-mailed me out of the blue and told me that my link up every Tuesday inspired her so she was eager to collaborate and start a three month collaboration with me. Little did I know that her shop would become a favorite as it is certainly one of a kind in todays boutiques as it caters to bracelets, watches, arm sets and even temporary arm tattoos.

Leslie and I developed a boutique business and fashion blogger professional relationship and more. We collaborated on a giveaway alongside Grace of (see post here) and Leslie included Grace and I in a fashion blogger interview (see my post here of the interview breakdowns). Leslie takes a lot of pride in her boutique and is always seeking advice from her fans or fashion communities for suggestions of what to add to her shop, one of those being temporary tattoos which she now carries here for $4.50. Here shop carries all that is arm related, hence the name “My Arm Charms.”

Below I wanted to pay tribute to My Arm Charms and show you bracelets I styled as part of the collaboration and ones I personally bought. At the bottom of the post you will find a special code to use when you order, and then you will find the link up that “started it all.”

I loved Jordans tips on how to accessorize,what girl doesn’t need these tips.  See post here.

Modavracha Summer Dress and ZeroUV Sunglasses (1)

I am always looking for some cat eye sunglasses style inspiration, well this post by Onyinye hit the spot and I just love how cute her white glasses are.

Teresa was inspired by the style of Melissa McCarthy in the recent film I Spy and so redid her own spin on dressing like Melissa which had me thinking on whom I might want to target and dress like in films…my brain is searching but with no success (HELP!). See Teresa’s post here.



This skirt is too lovely and I love seeing how other fashionistas style their graphic tees, so it was lovely seeing a graphic tee paired with a floral pencil skirt. Looking good Rebecca (see post here).



I love how open and honest Lisa is in this post about her body image but how to find what fits us and make it work for now from past styles. I also love the way you she styled her chambray top (and those heels are too cute). You can read the post here.

  • Petite Silver Vixen (@petitevix) July 7, 2015 at 11:55 am

    Oh wow, some real beauties amongst this lot. I love the When in Rome bangle – not seen anything like that before. And in the same photo I also love the earthy tones of Gems. Nowadays there is such great jewellery out there it’s difficult choosing as I usually end up wanting them all, I’m such a magpie.

    • Leslie July 12, 2015 at 4:43 pm

      When In Rome is one of my favorite bracelets for the same reason it caught your eye – I hadn’t ever seen anything like it.

  • Jess July 7, 2015 at 12:09 pm

    How cool! Good for your for pitching a company. Your story is proof that initiative often pays off, even if not immediately after the pitch.
