Background - I posted another thread seeking advice on which scarf to get a friend for graduation - I ended up getting the Gucci flora scarf because I know my friend loves it and the choices at Hermes were overwhelming. While shopping at Hermes with another friend, I decided to try on a watch I wanted eventually - the SAs in the watch dept. were super nice and immediately complemented my CDC bracelet and Prada bag - I think they were amused by the dragon on it. I asked to see the Medor watch and the SA said that he was just about to tell me there was a watch that matched my CDC. (Btw. that little ring on the CDC is where one could attach a dog leash, I always wondered, knew the background of the design just not that detail). I tried on several Medor watches, blue, tan, red (my friend told me the red one made me look green - I love her for being that honest, LOL) and ended up loving the black one - my favorite for its edgy look - my SA told me it was the last black & palladium Medor watch in the country?!? Had to buy it - no choice in the matter really after that. Besides it just fits me, like when you buy something that feels like you already own it its that perfect. And it was on my list. Post unexpected expensive purchase drinks were at Tao (a good friend realizes when to suggest drinks to fully enjoy a purchase and forget the guilt). Dinner at Babbo. I wore my new watch today at work with grey slacks, black quilted ballet flats, a black 3/4 sleeve cardigan, white shell, black & white Fendi scarf tied at the neck, and silver teardrop earrings. LOVE IT.And I think with my uber-conservative look its something that I can get away with and still look professional (at least I hope so!) I have no idea what the leather is but it looks tumbled? I did forget to have it shipped to save on taxes - darn! Thanks for letting me share!
