Summer lovin……

San Francisco summer is in full effect…. just barely warm days,  brisk, chilly nights and lots of fog.  Every San Franciscan knows that layering is the way to get through this season gracefully. If you don’t know them already, we’d like to introduce you to our answer to the San Francisco summers:  the arm warmer.   The arm warmer is the perfect thing to slip into your bag in the morning  to wear later when the fog rolls in.  We have a diverse selection of materials:  knitwear, lace, cotton, velvet,  some stripped and so much more.   It is a good way to add some style to your ensemble, and add some coverage to bare arms when it gets chilly.  We also recommend the arm cuff.    These pretty little things keep the wrist and upper hand warm, all while making the wearer look super cute.  Swankety Swank carries arm warmers and cuffs for ladies and the fashion forward lad.

Modeling a selection of arm warmers and other items available at Swankety Swank are STORM and Anna, our summer love birds.  At least for this story…….
