Splurge vs Save

I have a new found love for watches. I used to think Cher from Clueless put it perfectly when she said "a watch doesn't really go with this outfit, daddy" when she was late for curfew and still in the valley. But, after inheriting my grandfathers awesomely cool vintage Rolex, I was a convert. Telling time actually can be cool. And stylish. And an excuse to leave my cell phone at home..... My current watch is gold and I'm looking for something a little different..... White ceramic to be exact!

I love this Michael Kors Chronograph Resin Watch, and at $225 it is a reasonable expenditure.

I love, love, love this Chanel J12 Diamond but at $9,950 it's a bit more of an investment.

This one is easy - I am on a recession budget afterall! I'd rather put ten grand towards a home, a car, an extravagant vacation. Someday.....


  1. I love both of those watches and have had my eye on those Michael Kors ones for a while....although I also never wear watches, but this guy has be perhaps changing my tune.
