The other night, my friend Mia reminded me of my old silver GUESS watch that I misplaced a couple years ago. Determined to find it, I searched my house – and in the process, also found a super adorable gold Winnie the Pooh watch by Disney. Although the first is still perfectly functional, the latter is beyond repair. :'( Which is a shame because I liked it better!
I’ve been meaning to start wearing a watch again, mostly for two reasons..
1) So I can actually know when to take my break or clock out when I’m at work. It’s kind of annoying to keep asking your coworkers for the time. >.<; I’m not allowed to have my cellphone on me during my shift – but even if I was, constantly checking the time can drain my precious battery life. :P Even outside of work, knowing the time is always useful.
2) Now that I’m going into my senior year of college, I figured I should start dressing more professionally – one accessory at a time. : ) I do believe that I dress my age, but aiming to look a little older wouldn’t hurt. Especially since I get mistaken for a high schooler more often than you would think! ._.
I know that it’s counterintuitive to want a Hello Kitty watch, and expect to be seen as more mature, but I’ve found ways around this. For example, I think the watch straps pictured above are incredibly cute. In fact, I can absolutely see myself wearing all of them. But if there’s anything I want to avoid, it’s exactly this: juvenile-looking designs. What this means? I’m looking for a watch with either a stainless steel strap, or at least a solid-colored one.Although this one is more acceptable, I still take issue with the fact that the strap wraps around your wrist twice. The modest analog clock on this one is perfect, though. Do want! :D But right now, I’m torn between ordering this one..
..and this one:
I found both on eBay, and are thus incredibly cheap – both in price and quality. I don’t think I mind, though. I just want a cute watch that will last me until I decide to buy a nicer one. What do you guys think – should I risk ordering one of these online, or spend the extra $20-$40 on something else?
