Arm candy essentials: Watches

Helsinki, 0 degrees




Love is as old as time, though it is considerably more difficult to stuff inside a watch.

Good things are worth waiting for! I have finally rewarded myself for a job well done (my master thesis that is). After thinking about it for a long time, I decided to reward myself with a watch. I have been looking for the right watch for years, but the perfect one hasn't crossed my path before last spring when I saw Marc by Marc Jacobs' rose gold watch for the first time. According to me, watches are an integral part of women's wristwear, stacked and/or layered bracelets and only now since I have the perfect watch, my arm candy collection is complete.

Hyvää kannattaa odottaa! Olen vihdoin palkinnut itseäni hyvästä työstä (viittaan maisteritutkintooni). Vaikea palkitsemisvalinta on nyt vihdoin tehty. Olen etsinyt oikeaa rannekelloa vuosia, mutta juuri sitä täydellistä kelloa ei ole tullut vastaan. Ihastuin kuitenkin viime keväänä bongaamaani Marc by Marc Jacobsin metallirannekekelloon. Mielestäni rannekello on olennainen osa naisten rannekoruja, ja nyt vasta kellon myötä rannekoruvarastoni on täydellinen.

Marc by Marc Jacobs' rose gold beauty is stunning! It's the ideal size and effortlessly chic. Currently, women's watch fashion favors metallics: gold, silver and rose gold. My favorite metallic colors are silver and rose gold. This new watch is my favorite purchase this late winter and you will be seeing it in my upcoming blog posts this spring.

Marc by Marc Jacobsin ruusukullan värinen kaunokainen on upea! Mielestäni kello on hyvän (tarpeeksi suuren) kokoinen, ja ihanan naisellinen tyyliltään. Tällä hetkellä kellomuoti suosii metallivärejä: hopeeta, kultaa ja ruusukultaa. Omat suosikkini ovat hopea ja ruusukulta. Kello onkin suosikkihankintani tänä lopputalvena ja se tulee näkymään tulevan kevään asu- ja tyylikuvissa!

I bought the watch from Keskisen Kello, and they are offering a 15% discount also for my readers! You can easily buy your own one from Keskisen Kello's online shop. The discount code is for all normal priced products. The discount code is DRAGONFLY, and it's valid until February 10. Is it time for you to pamper or reward yourself? Valentine's Day is also around the corner!

Hankin kellon Keskisken Kellolta, ja sain myös lukijoille 15%:n alennuskoodin kyseisestä paikasta! Voit helposti tilata oman kellon netistä. Koodi käy kaikkiin verkkokaupan tuotteisiin, jotka ovat myynnissä normaalihinnoin. Eli se käy esimerkiksi Marc by Marc Jacobs tuotteisiin, mutta ei siis jo valmiiksi alennettuihin tuotteisiin. Alennuskoodi on DRAGONFLY. Alennuskoodi on voimassa 10.2 saakka. Ehkä sinunkin on aika palkita/hemmotella itseäsi? Ystävänpäivä lähestyy myös kovaa vauhtia!


Do you already have a perfect watch? What are the most important characteristics in a watch? Do you wear stacked bracelets, or do you prefer simple jewelry ensembles?

Joko sinulla on täydellinen rannekello käytössä? Mitä arvostat rannekellossa? Pidätkö useita rannekoruja, vai suositko yksinkertaisten korujen käyttöä?

  5. oh, it sure is a pretty watch! the right size, the right colour, the right looks! I have 4 watches. one D&G, one Moschino, one Hello Kitty and one Seiko. 3 of those have at least some pink details or are entirely pink :) for some reason I haven't worn my watches very often recently.
