Splurge vs. Steal

Milan Fashion Week Spring 2011

Not Your Grandfather’s Watch

I have always been a bit fascinated with watches. I have worn a watch since kindergarten. Over this past summer, I was cleaning out my room, and I stumbled upon some old watches I had when I was younger. I found a Minnie Mouse watch, a Beauty and the Beast Watch, a Barbie watch, a Hello Kitty Watch, a Fossil watch, and a Swatch watch with yellow flowers on it. Then, my most recent watch, a Skagen watch, broke, so I added to the pile. I looked at this collection of watches I have somehow accumulated over the years. I have certainly grown up over the years while wearing watches. I ended up saving all of the watches when I cleaned out my room. I just couldn’t part with them.

Today, watches are almost non-existent to today’s youth. Everyone just seems to just pull out their cell phone to see what time it is. Me, no, I could never do that. I love wearing a watch too much. Currently, I am searching for the perfect gold watch.  Although I mostly wear a silver watch, gold watches seem to stand out more and well, they are just so much fun to wear. The Vestal unisex watch is quite amazing. It definitely reminds me of something that could be worn by my grandfather. The Michael Kors watch is a very updated and modern version. The Nixon watch is something I would wear in a minute. It is simple, chic, and it looks fabulous on any wrist. Last, we have  the ASOS watch. This watch is pretty special because it has a double strap. This also looks really cool on the wrist.

P.S. What do you think of the new layout of Inspector Snew? Love it? Hate it? Please let me know. I want to hear from you!
