Pretty little charms



This post is a little late, but here it is as promised. I really didn’t do any shopping aside from the Burberry makeup while in Chicago, so I was a little disappointed since I had been saving up for awhile for a little splurge. I was considering purchasing a new handbag since I had my current one for awhile now and an over the shoulder bag would be a nice change. So when I went into my local Louis Vuitton to try out a few styles I have had my eyes on for a few months now, I found out that everything was sold out. Needless to say I didn’t walk away with the bag I wanted, but I did happen to stumble upon this special little something. I have to admit that this wasn’t planned, but I have never been more happy with a purchase. Just looking at it right now while I am writing this post puts a very big smile on my face. Well I have been keeping you in suspense for long enough. Here it is!

Gorgeous right? These bag charms are meant to be used a key chain or  hooked onto the handles of your bag, but they also look really cute on just like a charm bracelet. I just adore each little charm. They are so delicate and adorable. It’s not the most practical of purchases, but it makes me love my bag even more then I already did before. I also think they will look great with whichever bag I decide to get in the future.

Here is what they look like on my bag.








I think they look amazing against the Damier Ebene print and adds a fun pop of color to my bag. LV also has a few other styles of bag charms too that are very adorable, but I fell in love with this particular one. I also think that the size of the charms goes perfect with the size of my bag. I really like this bag charm too, but I found the charms way to big.

How about you? Any recent splurges or fun purchases?

October Faves: MICHAEL KORS Rose Gold Watches

I have been  completely in love with these Michael Kors Rose Gold Watches for awhile now. I am thinking they will be one of my favorite Autumn accessories this year. Here are three different ones that I really like. I tried all three of them on recently to see how they look in person, since you never know what size they will be in person. I also wasn’t sure how well the rose gold color will go with my skin tone (there is a difference in the rose gold tone among the three). Something you don’t know about me is that I am a watch fanatic! I own about six different watches, which some people will probably think is a bit much. But since I usually always wear the same jewelry everyday (diamond studs and necklace), I like to switch it up with my watches and silver or gold bracelets with them. And trust me they are ALL different and I wear them all the time. I usually wear at least three different style each week and I can’t wait to add one of these watches to my collection.

Here are the three styles I really like.

MICHAEL KORS Rose gold-plated chronograph watch – $250


This watch has a rose gold dial (which I really like) on the face as well as three sub-dials and a date function. It combines a beautiful feminine and elegant rose gold tone along with masculine details like the link bracelets and the oversized face.












MICHAEL KORS Oversized Rose Gold Watch – $250


This is an oversized watch with a simple rose gold face. A little more simple and feminine then the previous watch.  Similar three sub-dials, date function and hinged snap closure as the Rose gold-plated Chronograph watch. These two watches are similar also in size approximately 2.75″ diameter and the dials are 1.75″ wide. The rose gold tone in both of these watches are the same and accurately pictured below.



You can see here that the links on this watch is much smaller then on the Rose gold-plated chronogaphy watch.











AND LASTLY MY FAVORITE: MICHAEL KORS Rose Golden Chronograph Watch – $250


This watch is different from the previous ones in many ways. Aside from the white face, this rose gold color of this watch is much lighter and subtle then the other watches. This is one reason why I like this watch over the others ones. Since I have a more olive skin tone I feel that this color best complemented me. The other two were too yellow and bright for me, whereas this one is a more light gold. I also tried a regular gold MICHAEL KORS watch and that definitely did not look good on me. It could be because I am use to just wearing silver instead of gold and the lighter rose gold color was a easier transition for me to make. But I just felt it looked better on my skin tone.




Another key difference with this watch are the links. The links are much larger then other watches. I have a small wrist and you might think a watch with smaller links will look better, but since the face is oversized, I think the larger links makes the watch look less overwhelming and much sleeker on my wrist.




Last thing to note is that the face to this watch (1.5″) is smaller then the other ones (1.75″). And while I do like oversize watches, I felt the other ones where just too big for my wrists and this was just the right size.






While these watches were very similar, they are also completely different. I think each one would look different on everyone and you just have to try it on to figure out which one is best for you. I think I found the one for me and will let you know which one I ended up picking. I know this look isn’t for everybody. But I really like watches, so I am really obsessed with these. I hope you found this helpful if you are considering any of these watches.


Are any of you guys liking these watches too? Which one do you like the best! Happy Monday!

Current Obsession: Key Pendant Necklaces

I’ve been really in love with key pendants lately. I think they are so fun and whimsical. Here are some of my favorites. Wouldn’t they be a great accessory for fall?

Tiffany Keys Oval  key pendant (my favorite!)

House of Harlow 1960 Mini Key Necklace

House of Harlow 1960 Long Key Necklace

Nordstrom Key Pendant Necklace

Juicy Couture Key Wish Necklace

Gorjana Key Necklace

Banana Republic Manor keys necklace

Kirra Key Charm 2 Necklace

I think the layered keys are really feminine, but also very rocker. I would love to get one of each style. The pendant would be great for a everyday look, while the clustered keys are great with a simple top for a fun night out. Which style do you like best?
