remember swatch watches?

it seems lately there have been a ton of styles coming back that remind me of elementary school (see fishtail reference from yesterday). not the least of which is that swatch has come back big time, and this full-blooded gold swatch watch is pretty cool. it seems to have swept the nation - walking down the streets in the fashion district here in nyc, every hip woman seems to be wearing it and i've also seen it on a bunch of celebs, not the least of which include some of the new jersey housewives (wait, did i just bucket them in the "celeb" category???). it's nice and chunky on the wrist and the diamonds on the inside add a little tiny bit of extra bling - making it more a piece of statement jewelry rather than a regular old timepiece. it looks good worn with a casual outfit but works when dressed up, too.

i've had my eye on it for a few months and just yesterday saw it on jomashop for $116.99 (regular retail is $150) plus an extra $10 off with promo code "SUMMER". it's no cartier, but it's a fun accessory! and it fits right in with my recent gold obsession...

p.s. remember swatch guards so the watch face doesn't get scratched? ahhh the good old days.

p.p.s. if you're in the market and you're ok with spending a bit more, there's also this gold oversized chronograph watch by michael kors. LOVE!
