Michael Kors Stainless Steel Chronograph Watches: Hot Chocolate

First, there was rose gold to capture our attention, now we go deeper yet into chocolate (who doesn’t love chocolate?) with these two versions of Michael Kors‘ stainless steel chronograph watch.

Brera Orologi Frederica Collection

I love the look of this watch from Brera Orologi’s Frederica Collection (the co-founder named the women’s watches after names she would give to a daughter someday…how cute!).

It's a quarter past…Bunny?

Are the little faces hypnotizing me? Is it weird that I want this watch so badly I can almost feel the weight of the stainless steal on my wrist? I don’t normally wear watches so this is unusual for me to be so smitten with a piece like this. Lately, I have been loving the … Continue reading “It's a quarter past…Bunny?”
