Hermes Cape Cod GM Watch – This is on my wishlist for the holiday season. Yep my wishlist consists of a Chanel Le Boy bag in black with the gold hardware and a Hermes Cape Cod GM Watch. That is a big wishlist and that is why it is on the wishlist. Here is why this watch is so awesome.
It is a Ladies’ stainless steel 29mm Hermès Cape Cod GM quartz movement watch with white dial, silver-tone luminous Arabic hour markers, date display at 3 o’clock position, silver-tone luminous baton hands, signed push/pull crown, long double tour tan Barenia calfskin leather strap and signed buckled closure. I love the classic sleek look of the watch with the double wrap bohemian styling. It is a watch you can wear in the country or at work in the city. This is a versatile piece that you can wear and it is function and fashion all in one piece.
I found it for less because you can get it pre owned for 30% to 40% less retail.
Get this Hermes Cape Cod GM Watch for about $800 less retail and taxes – so about $1,000 less retail.
Chanel Boy Bag – wallet on a chain for $3,095
Isabel Marant has created a black leather watch in honor of her dad’s watch that he wore daily. She created a limited edition watch that she sold in her store last year that was $9,500 in gold, but this one is more of a functional daily piece that is a tad more affordable and definitely more wearable to work and to dressier occasions. I happen to like this one more because the face and the leather are a sleek understated black and the hardware is a cool silver.
Get the new Isabel Marant silver hardware black leather watch for $875. It is a steal compared to her gold version.
The story behind Daniel Wellington begins with a trip half way around the globe where Filip Tysander, the founder of Daniel Wellington, met an intriguing gentleman from the British Isles. The man had the inspiring ability to be gentlemanly but still relaxed and unpretentious. He had an impeccable style, and loved to wear his Rolexes on old weathered Nato straps. His name? Well, Daniel Wellington, of course. The traditional, yet crisp design blends together perfectly with the colorful Nato strap and will appeal to almost everyone with a sense for classic and timeless design. Leather band with buckle closure. Band width 20mm / 18mm. Case diameter measures 40mm. Case thickness measures 6mm. Stainless steel backing. Water resistant up to 3 ATM. Japanese movement. Daniel Wellington Classic Leather Watch that is both Timeless and Classic is a perfect holiday gift idea for a loved one in your life or for yourself. Pair this with a white button up shirt and some great boots with a pair of black leather pants and you are good to go. It is that laid back chic that will give you all the confidence and style you need this holiday season.
Michael Kors Gold Chronograph WatchÂ – if you are looking for the perfect gold watch to wear for New York Fashion Week or need a great watch to accessorize your fall wardrobe, I suggest this very chic looking not too oversized Michael Kors Chronograph watch with the black watch face, Rolex like links, and one Roman Numeral on the 12 only. It is very sleek looking and not over the top, but when you wear it with anything in your wardrobe it will make a nice statement. The price is nice too for $275.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Blue and White Watch – all you need to do is add some red and you are all set for a nautical look for the 4th of July or to look like you are Parisian. Whatever the look this rubber coated chrono watch with a blue and white color combo is super cool for summer.
Wear this watch with the new Rebecca Minkoff blue and white floral pants, a Marc Jacobs white carnaby bag, and a pair of white ballet flats from Chloe and you have a to die for outfit of the day. Also, add celebrity favorite Ondademar Blue and White swimsuit as part of the ensemble with a pair of Â Vince white linen pants and you are all set for a weekend away.
One of my favorites is the Chloe ballet flats – get them to pull together the whole look.

Do you love the Hermes Medor Watch? Hermes stopped making it for a short time and now it is back in limited quantities online and in stores. However to find it in the coveted palladium and black combination is definitely a challenge not to mention the $4,000 price tag.
Getting the look for less is definitely a good option when you can find it. The Hermes Medor Watch never had much competition in the pyramid stud department, but since they stopped making the watch for a little bit, Le Mer Collection decided to fill the void with their version of the smaller Hermes Medor Watch with pyramid studs that had 3 smaller studs and a wrap around watch strap instead of the one strap seen here on the Hermes Medor Watch.
I love the Hermes Medor Watch and if you can buy it, I highly recommend this very coveted watch. The workmanship on the leather is unparalleled and the Hermes prestige is immediately bestowed upon those that wear an Hermes piece like this.
However, if you find that $4000 is something you need to spend on say rent or a week long vacation to Aruba or to pay for your monthly expenses, then buying the look for less La Mer Collection pyramid stud watch is definitely a good option for $115.
The La Mer Collection watch is made of black leather with silver pyramid stud. It gives you the look for less but you still get the great look. I can see this watch worn with a little black dress for a night out or on the weekend for a day out shopping. This watch is no shrinking violet compared to the famous Hermes Medor Watch.
Get the Look for Less – Buy the La Mer Collection pyramid wrap Watch for $115 now.
The colored watch band is all the rage this season. Everyone from Rolex to Seiko are making watches with colorful straps. Michele watches has a rainbow of leather watch straps you can buy to switch out between your watches. One of my favorite looks for the season is the pretty art deco look of the Torneau shaped bezel with the Swarovski crystals. You can get a Cartier rectangular tank watch with a black leather strap, or a round Rolex celini leather strap watch, or the more interesting shape of this Juicy Couture Dalton watch in the pink croc-embossed leather strap. I love the light pink color and the pretty face of the watch. It is really the ultimate pretty watch for the season. If you want a great watch for the season, but do not want to make a large investment on a Cartier or a Rolex leather strap watch, check out this Juicy Couture option. It is very cool.
I never owned a Baby-G watch myself – and while it wasn’t necessarily my style back in my junior high years when the fad was in its heyday, I still couldn’t deny their funky-coolness for those who were always showing them off in the cafeteria. Unfortunately Ke$ha and Lady Gaga’s stamps of approval weren’t enough to make me reconsider the resurrected style in more recent years, but now that Rebecca Minkoff is putting her more sophisticated spin on the chunky watch, I’m finding myself whistling a different tune! The limited-edition rose gold G-Shock watch by Rebecca Minkoff officially debuted just in time for the holiday shopping rush, but now that the chaos has died down somewhat, I’m considering a purchase. Rebecca’s take on the Baby-G is a little bit more sophisticated than you might remember from the late 90s (chunky plastic, transparent neon shades, in-your-face digital display, etc.) with its black resin bracelet, “pink champagne” colored dial with black studded details. It’s still got that funky tough-girl flair, but with a little more 2012 edge and less playground appeal. Make sure it’s on your Valentine’s Day wish list before the style is gone for good!
