These days, bigger is better when it comes to women's timepieces, which do a lot more than give you the time of day. The most multi-functional of accessories, watches give you the time and sometimes the date, all while making a blinged out fashion statement. I love the look of a big, chunky men's watch on a small dainty, feminine wrist like my own. And that is exactly what I got for Christmas this year.
Originally I wanted to get the Michael Kor's Runway style but the band was a lot thicker than I expected, so I gave up on the search due to my Finals schedule. Lo and behold, Hubby decided to take matters into his own hands to seek out the perfect watch for me. One week before Christmas while I was pulling my hair out from studying for Finals he brought this out to cheer me up =)
I have had a soft spot for rose gold since it hit the market; the pink tone is so feminine and chic. The watch is perfectly girly with the surrounding diamonds yet still has the masculine look with the proportional chunky band. I also adore the wide circular shape of the face too. It helps me see what time it is easier because some of the smaller face watches are so tiny I can hardly make out the numbers on it.
The watch you wear makes a statement about your style. An oversized watch is such a statement piece that you can easily get by with minimal other jewelry. Here I decided to stay neutral with a beige crochet sweater, camel wool skirt and my trusty fur boots. This outfit has been winterized with a thermal long sleeve shirt on the inside and a vibrant red scarf on the outside.
A watch is a way to show off your personality. It is a piece of art on your wrist, and it represents something about you whether you choose leather, metal or plastic; bright and bold or basic black. In addition, watches can also commemorate a special time in someone's life, from a wedding to an anniversary to the birth of a child. It's sentimental, so every time you look at your wrist, it will not only tell you what time it is, but also take you back to a special time in your life. Thank you Hubby for a wonderful present on our 12th Christmas together!
