Watch Out

All my possessions for a moment of time. - Elizabeth I

Most people I know rely on their phone instead of a watch (including me), but it's high time we got back into the habit of the traditional timepiece.

These watches fit all of life's occasions.  A watch to fool everyone from afar, a sparkly dressy bracelet with a hidden timepiece, a big white chunky watch for jeans and t-shirt days, a hefty masculine watch when I'm feeling tough, and the Skagen really has an elegant, timeless quality about it.  Pun intended.

Faux Lex from Fred Flare - $30
Bagdley Mishka Crystal Embellished bow watch - $199
Juicy Couture Socialite watch - $97
Michael Kors Oversized PU Chronograph watch - $225
Skagen Square Case Mesh Strap Watch - $115

Of course, if money were no object...

I've always loved watches...but never on me...always on other people. They make my forearm look stubby. If I were to wear a watch, it would have to be in the style of a beaded, or bangle, bracelet...something that isn't "stuck" to one place on my arm...
but thats just me :)
...I do like the sparkly watch though :) ...I like sparkles
...I don't think I've ever sounded more girlie :)
Caught you on the news last night!
VERY professional!! Are you enjoying the new gig?

for about 2 years when I was taking Travel & Tourism classes, the instructors pounded it into our heads that flight attendants (and really anyone working for an airline) wore a watch and we needed to get (back) in the habit of doing so. Luckily I had just gotten a watch the Christmas before so I set the correct time and started wearing it. Then I got another watch/bracelet set (its pink and fancy looking) and decided I'd like to wear that.

So for 2 years I wore a watch. I graduated, then stopped wearing them. Now I only wear them when I go on job interviews.

thanks mari, loving my new gig! you know i think you'd benefit from an oversized watch that's a bit loose so it's like a bracelet! if it's too thin or tight it's like straps around ankles, makes anyone's legs (in this case arms) look shorter and stumpier

ha lizet. to appear professional! i do the same thing. but i've been wanting a cool watch that is a little outrageous because all of mine are so business-like and conservative!
