I cannot begin to tell you how long I have wanted a Rose Gold watch in my life! Of course, like every other fashion blogger on the planet I've lusted after a Michael Kors. However being a born bargain hunter, quickly came to realise that there were plenty of other brands with watches just as beautiful as the MK's, at a fraction of the price! One brand in particular which seemed to encapsulate everything I was looking for in a watch is Fossil. Oh and I have since discovered that Fossil actually manufacture the Michael Kors watches anyway!
Unfortunately, living on a VERY tight budget I have not been able to treat myself to such luxuries. However, I was recently lucky enough to be offered a gift for consideration of review from Joshua James Jewellery - www.joshuajamesjewellery.co.uk and quickly decided upon this gorgeous Fossil Stella Rose Gold Watch - and let me tell you, it is absolutely perfect! This particular model is the Fossil Stella ES3590 which is made from Rose Gold plated stainless steel and has a bracelet style strap with fold over push button clasp for ease of use. The face is the ideal size for my wrists as it's not ridiculously large like some other models I've seen, and is circled with some pretty sparkling stones! The hands, dial and sub-dials all have rose gold detailing to compliment the outer sections. This watch has 3 sub-dials; date, day of the week and 24hrs - I particularly find the date one useful as I'm forever forgetting the date! Finally it is water-resistant up to 50 metres!
The watch arrives in an official Fossil Gift Box, unfortunately I am not a fan of this one, as it's a little childish and not very lady-like? But that's just a minor pointer, and you could always purchase your own gift box if required! Joshua James Jewellery sell this watch backed with the official Fossil 2 year guarantee as standard - offering you peace of mind when you purchase!
I am totally besotted with my new timepiece, but I have decided to only wear it on special occasions to make the most of it for years to come! I would highly recommend this watch to anyone, and especially if you've considered buying a Michael Kors but can't justify the price tag! After all, they're both made by Fossil anyway ;)
