If This Doesn’t Put You in a Good Mood, I Don’t Know What Will

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

If the LC by Lauren Conrad collection for Kohl’s doesn’t put you in a good mood, I don’t know what will.  I mean, this girl is on roll, with her growing lifestyle sitebeauty blog and People StyleWatch gig.  Her spring 2012 collection is feminine, colorful and California-cool. There are spring dresses, skinny jeans, and breezy blouses in a mix of floral prints and light brights like coral, dusty rose and sky blue.  There is a perfect little black dress, a faux-leather jacket and a tailored blazer – all great wardrobe staples, while a yellow and white colorblock top, peplum vest and high-low skirt will let you check off all the latest trends without spending too much.  And you’ll gasp when you see all the sweet fashion jewelry.

Watch Out Michele!

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

When ever there’s a crowd swarming a Nordstrom’s jewelry counter, I elbow my way to the front.  My pulse quickens, I get a little sweaty, and I just have to see what every one is gawking at.  As I peel layer after layer of people back like an onion, I see what they see - watches.  But not just any watches:  Michele watches.

They are gorgeous.  I have never heard of the brand Michele, which is odd since I consider myself somewhat of a watch connoisseur.  I guess Nordstrom realized the brand needed more exposure too since they decided to host a 4 hour trunk show for the accessory company. 

I all but slobbered over the classic art deco time pieces.  With its clean lines, 108 hand-set white diamonds, and mother-of-pearl face, the bracelet is every thing a girl could ever want in a watch.  It is just jaw dropping, but so is the price.  When I looked at the tag, I thought $250 was a bargain.  The sales girl tried to stifle a giggle when I asked why the time piece was only that much.  She kind of rolled her eyes when she replied that $250 was just the cost of the band.  The watch itself cost more than $1,200. 

As I sadly placed the watch back on its velvet pad for others to paw, I thought that there’s got to be other watches out there that don’t cost as much that are just as pretty.

I really like the Reactor collection of watches.  This two toned piece costs $350 – which translates into less than 25% of the Michele watch.  With its sleek lines, intricate detailing and polished finish, it’s a realistic runner-up to the luxury brand.  You can find it at Dillards.

Take a look at this black leather strap watch from Bulova.  I have never owned a watch like this but I think it’s about time I do.  You can find it at Kohls for $250, but that place is always, always, always having a half off sale, or a buy one get one free sale, or the best sale of the year sale- so I’m going to wait it out.
