Wrist Worthy

I love accessories and pour moi, the bigger, the better! This philosophy definitely extends to my preference for watches. No dainty little numbers for for this wrist, I love huge, chunky, should-be-on-a-man size watches. I'm particularly fond of the Michael Kors variety (already have 2 of his!) - he nails it every. time. Right now i'm lusting after these two...

This "Pink Catwalk" chronograph watch is PERFECT for Spring/Summer, n'est ce pas?? And of course i'd have to get it in my signature color - hot pink!

I've also been in the market for a great two-tone watch and of course, M.K. delivers...

The thing is, although his watches are a pretty reasonable price (the $200-$250 range), i spotted a great oversized two-tone Anne Klein watch (which of course i couldn't find anywhere online) in my new Elle magazine, and it's only $95! I'd have to try them both on in person before making any final decisions, but $95 sounds way better than $250. PLUS then i'd have so much leftover to buy the fun pink number! ;-)

Have also been perusing the Linea Pelle website. I am a huge fan of her belts (which you can get for next to nothing on - obviously limited selection but if you're diligent, you can find some jewels) and am now a huge fan of her jewelry. These bangles and cuffs (all studded, of course) are screaming my name. But having spent most of my life shopping for such accessories at places like F21, i doubt i'd ever shell out $40 - $75 for these beauties. (Sale maybe??)

P.S. No i'm not actually buying any of these right now although i must confess, i slipped up spending challenge-wise (darn Pour La Victoire sample sale!). I'm finding the spending challenge difficult for a number of reasons (i.e. more than just it sucks that i can't buy this right now) and will discuss it in a future post. :-)

Oh how I wish I was at the Pour La Victoire SS! What did you walk home with?

RYC: The shelves are from TARGET! About $30 each. Once you accumulate more shoes, it's more reasonable to add more shelves. =)

Caro! I've been meaning to comment on your blog forever, I LOVE it!

1. The no shopping--I feel your pain. I gave up all shopping for Lent and it sucks that I can't even buy something for Sunflower Ceremony until after Easter. However, I'm finding out that I really don't need to shop all that often and I'm ok. I just delete all the store sale e-mails before I even open them.

2. Kim K, really? I think she is the most overwrought, over made-up, over airbrushed person ever. I don't find her attractive at all because without all that help, she doesn't look too great. I'd pick my own looks before hers 100% of the time. And your looks too for that matter!

3. Your new pics look GREAT! What color lipstick are you wearing? I've been looking for a great bright color and it looks amazing on you.

4. I totally want invites to RueLaLa, Ideeli and Gilt. Once I am shopping again, I need ideas for how to look as fun and polished as you. I'm trying to broaden my horizons beyond Gap, Banana and Nordstrom.

Keep up the great work girl, LOVE IT!

Love that pink watch! Ok, I have an exercise for you.
Start a list of everything you are NOT buying. Things you want to buy but are not. Put a price next to it.
Add it up at the end of the month to see how much of your money you are keeping rather than letting go and pat yourself on the back.

the list thing is a great idea. never thought of doing that but think i may have to try it out. thanks for the idea!
