Watches And Accessories


I love collecting accessories that sometimes when I go through my stash pieces appear new to me as I have so much. I love beanies, as seen from most of my lookbook pictures lately. They're stylish and great for covering roots. Scarves are also a must as Ottawa gets freaking cold. Most times a hat, scarf and handbag is more than enough for accessorizing. Especially when sometimes if you have too much on it seems kind of Snoop Dogg. I always think that you just want the accessories to be just noticeable instead of looking like you’re hoping into a Cadalic going to a pool party with a fur coat... Unless you are in that sort of thing.

Watches are a good example of style meeting function. Brands like Patek Philippe, Omega or deliver well-designed pieces that I have fallen in love at first sight. They’re definitely a good investment, especially given how timeless and classic they are. Looking at secondhand rolex prices is also great for affordability as each watch come with great warranty and dealer service. Most days I still rely on my watch for time instead of pulling out my cellphone. It’s almost like my version of a zen bracelet.

    And i agree with you about buying a good watch is an interesting investment: it lasts forever :) my mother has an amazing omega: you don't need to wear anything else but the watch.

  6. Beautiful jewelry box! I actually haven't worn a watch since 2006... Which may explain why I'm always late. Hahaha

  9. If the little perfume bottle is Burberry sheer, it has the most wonderful scent.

  10. Haha, I was actually looking at second hand Rolexes and the first one I picked was over $5,000 so I decided to give up on watch hunting. I always pick the most expensive things even when I don't mean to. D:

  12. I wear a watch from swatch that's lasted me for four years, so I'm pretty happy that's still going. It's a very no-fuss stainless steel piece, so as long as I get the batteries checked soon, I think it'll last me for a few more years at least. I'm not really into statement jewelry so I really like smaller pieces like pendants :) x
