Intro: D.I.Y Stacked Beaded Bracelets
If some of you don't know I am a HUGE fanatic about fashion....I LOVE it. And, the trend that I am loving right now is the "Beaded Bracelets", or "Stacked Bracelets." I have been seeing so many people rockin this summer trend like, all of young hollywood basically from Miley Cyrus, Lauren Conrad, and even featured in some of the hottest fashion mags, like Instyle, Seventeen, and Teen Vogue.
