What time is it?

I don't actually own a watch. I know watches are a huge accessory right now, and that everyone is talking about them, especially the Michael Kors ones, but I don't have one.

I want one though, and I've been hunting for the perfect one. I looked at the Michael Kors ones that people seem to love right now. Most of them are Rose Gold though, and I'm not that big a fan of Rose Gold. Especially not for as expensive as they are. I usually wear silver more often, okay about 90% of the time my jewelry is silver.

So I decided not to follow the crowd and start looking other places for the perfect watch. And I finally found it...at surprise surprise, Kate Spade. You were surprised, weren't you. I mean I never talk about Kate Spade or anything like that. She hasn't been my favorite designer since she was mentioned on Queer Eye For The Straight Guy (by Carson Kressley no less).

Okay, so honestly it wasn't all that surprising, I do adore Kate Spade, the brand is classy, timeless, and fun and trendy. Plus it's priced well with most of the trendy pieces being lower priced, and the thing like clothes and shoes which are more expensive tend to have classic silhouettes with the pattern or color being what's trendy, which is great because as long as the silhouette is good it doesn't have to be the hottest pattern or color as long as you look amazing in it.

The watch I've picked is the Gramercy Grand in Stainless Steel. I love every thing about this watch right down to the hot pink spade on the face. It'll still probably be quite sometime before I purchase it, but it's definitely on my to buy list. I'm also thinking about waiting to see what's going to be in the Kate Spade Saturday line because I've heard the watches are going to be much less expensive.

What's your thought on the watch trend? My husband thinks they're pointless because my phone, iPad, laptop and car all have a clock. But I'm kinda completely in love with the trend. I used to own a small round faced Mary-Kate and Ashley one, that had a metal silver band with a to pink face, that I loved and wore til it fell apart. Literally, it fell to absolute pieces one day and I lost a few of the links so it wouldn't fit anymore when I got it put back together.
