I'm Watching You

    |
These days, white watches are all the rage. I feel like Michael Kors has been out to get me because I've been bombarded by ads of his white 'Runway Ceramic' watch like it's nobody's business. Little does he know, I am a college student who refuses to pay $450... for a watch. Sorry, Michael.

The solution to this madness? Get a replica! Fashion tip #28374: Your closet should be 70% classic and 30% trendy. Never spend a ton on trendy items because they will go out of style faster than you can say "Irish wristwatch" 5x fast. Instead, find knock-offs and replicas to save money.

Man, I saw the picture first and then read the price. That $450 price tag totally made my bank account weep a little.

Glad you found my blog! I love your outfits we could raid each other's closets :) oh and crazy thing--I bought a orange watch just like this at F21 two years ago and no one really like it. Now they're everywhere and overpriced. Cuu--razy.

I got a menswear watch 3 years ago for ten dollars. Thank goodness I was convinced not to drop 100 bucks on it, because I've never ever worn it.

Good tip.

Nice! I'm falling in love with white, honestly. Let's just go and bombard the fab designers. You take Michael, I'll take Chris Baily. Lol. Nice post! (love the skirt in the last post, too).

I agree completely. Classic items you spend the big bucks for...trendy not so much. i am too loving the white watch look but refuse to pay big$$$$ for it. like your pick.
