Life lately has been like a less melodramatic version of Lemony Snicket’s series of unfortunate events. From getting food poisoning, to my website mysteriously being down, there hasn’t been a moment to tell you about my new arm candy. It’s not a new man (I’m married thank you very much) but it’s pretty exciting none the less. You can probably guess from the picture above unless you live in a culture where spoons are worn around the wrist (in which case, I’d love to hear more!)
Jord watches seem to be popping up all over the internet and a few nights ago, on the wrist of a celebrity during a tv show. While that doesn’t often impact my decision to wear something, a watch with a point of difference certainly does. I’ve had a fascination with watches since I was a child and noticed the same fascination in my little nephew. We used to draw watches on our wrists or make paper origami watches when we were too young for adults to trust them into our possession.In primary school I got my very first watch , the cute mickey mouse kind, and haven’t looked back. I’ve been collecting them since.
Cool Watches are great convention breakers. A little detail that changes a look. My dark sandalwood ELY with a black watch face ($129) is a great slightly masculine touch to down play a super fluro pink cooper st beat goes on peplum dress, when most jewelry would be too much. When you turn up to baptism and your friend brings his baby over saying ” this is [pixelhazard] in the pinkest dress you’ll ever see in your life’, you know down playing ti was the perfect decision.
Besides, my notorious love for watches has left me with a wicked tan line on my wrist and a habit of staring at my wrist at frequent intervals. The latter looks rather unusual when there’s no watch to frequently stare at. With the addition of the Cora Maple & Silver watch ($275) which is a little more delicate and lighter, I’ll have all my aesthetic wooden watch pairing needs covered. Which one would you pick?
