Forever Frugal Friday ~ Steal vs. Splurge


I've said it before and I'll say it again, I am not generally a "watch person".  However whenever I see my roomie sporting her Michael Kors 'Runway' Rose Gold watch or my girl Christy sporting this stunner I am ever so tempted to become a "watch person" (I have my eye on this one specifically) and just spend the money. 

However, today I saw this awesome Timeless Fashion watch at Forever and am considering buying it to test out if I can really become a "watch person".  At under $20, it is the perfect "gateway watch". 

Anyone else not a "watch person"?  And those who are sporting these gorgeous bold watches, do you use them for the functionality of a watch or more as an accessory (like a bangle)?

I haven't worn a watch in years, but am completely loving this watch!! I've been loving the white watch craze too, maybe, just maybe I'll splurge on a chepo version!

Thanks for the shout! I feel naked w/out my watch now. I wish I still had my original gold one though too. I wonder where it is....? :9

I was not a watch person at all before I bought my Michael Kors Runway watch, but since then I wear a MK watch everyday! More like an accessory though as opposed to for function, although I do catch myself looking at it every now and then. I may be partial since I work for Michael Kors... but his watches really are the best!!! I love them and all of my non-MK working friends wear them too!

Oh and if the runway is really too big for you (however i challenge all to try it on and wear it for a week... you'll never go back) there is a smaller version that you may be more comfortable with. =)
