The SWELL Buyers & Stylists are off to the Miami Swim show for a weekend of sun, South Beach and, of course, swimwear.

We know, though gig. But hey, someone’s gotta do it, right!?

With the top swim designers, models, media, and 95 degree tropical thunder storms in town, packing for the trip meant curating their absolute favorite (and boldly colored, it is Miami) pieces to bring along. Read on for a peek inside the travel bag of SWELL Stylist, Kylie… (more…)

You’re Invited: The Arm Party

Celebrate Summer with red, white and blue (and orange, yellow, green, indigo and violet). This season we’re embracing the full spectrum of trims and stacking them sky high. Pile up on both wrists for the illusive double rainbow. Come one, come all, come early, or arrive (even more) fashionably late…welcome to the arm party.
Need help getting to the party?

Just a few rules for this arm party:
1. The more the merrier
2. This isn’t a junior high dance – let your bracelets mingle amongst themselves
3. Get Cray (and by “cray”, we mean Crayon…every color if at all possible)
4. Spike the punch with some hardware, tassels, etc.
5. The more the merrier

For a good time, call us at 1-800-255-7873 (or just shop online: Stackable Bracelets)

Aqua Inspiration

We Heart: Aqua
It’s only the color of nearly everything that’s amazing about Summer: clear skies, tropical water, swimming pools, and select varieties* of bubblegum ice cream (*the best varieties that is). Wear it head-to-toe for a turquoise take on the monochromatic look, or piece it with crisp white or bright yellow. However you choose to dish it up, it’s guaranteed to bring some sunshine to the room (as well as some extra glow to your skin tone!).
Some photo-inspo for your aqua-obsession…
