Michael Kors MK5263 Rose Gold Watch

Michael Kors MK5263 Watch - House of Fraser

To be perfectly honest, I've never really had a fancy/posh/expensive watch before. I recall my first watch being a plastic Lion King affair; I adored that watch, even though I think it was most probably an Argos special and didn't cost much more than a tenner. Obviously, I've grown up since my Lion King days (ahem) and have moved on to bigger and better things. Okay, so, for the past ten or so years I've relied on a multitude of £20 River Island watches, which I thought were perfectly acceptable (River Island DO do some lovely watches) but recently I have been craving a little luxury. Enter Michael Kors. I know, I know, every blogger and her mother has a Michael Kors watch, but I just had to join the club. Not because every blogger has one - but because these watches are simply stunning and I needed some rose gold magnificence in my life. 

Seen as I don't have £200 casually lying around to spend on a (let's face it, pretty indulgent) watch splurge, my parents treated me to it for getting a 2:1 in my English degree (whoop whoop - points mean prizes!) and I absolutely adore it. I chose the MK5263 (I think anyway, talk about confusing numbers!) watch after trying on a few, to be honest I'd always had my eye on this one (come on, it has pretty crystals round the edge - gotta love  a bit of bling) and decided on it in the end. I got it from House of Fraser, which luckily do 10% student discount so it came to a slightly-less-scary £179.99. I love wearing it SO much, there's something about wearing something expensive that makes you feel a little luxurious! 

What do you think to Michael Kors watches? Do you have one?

  10. Ah so pretty! And congratulations you on your degree. I love the look of Michael Kors watches, I'd love to save up for one. I have a Michael Kors leather tote (thanks to a stupid generous giftcard from family and a sale!) and love it to bits. After 6 months there still isnt a mark on it. I think his stuff is great

  30. Heading along the school of thought that easy is gorgeous, after that many would state that michael kors watches are spectacular. With the simple styles and never lots of "extras", these types of wrist watches are designed for those who are very likely to have a easy design. Professionals yet others in conservative professions don't want to jeopardize their professions by dressing outlandishly, such as their own view choices. If this describes you or even somebody you buy gifts for, then you may want to give consideration. Erina Kors watches are basic, however stylish, and at a lower price point than many designer wrist watches, they are able to make great presents for yourself as well as for all your family members. But exactly how if you undertake which one to buy?
