Frugal Preppy

For the longest time, I've been wanting a Toy Watch. I just love the look of the white plastic watch, and they're really trendy right now.

The Toy Watch was worn by Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side:



Toy Watch:


Coterie posted this watch recently. While Fornash (what a great site!) is selling a similar watch to the Toy at a great deal ($30), I just found the same watch on Overstock.com and saved $11 after shipping! The difference between the two watches is that the Fornash/Overstock watch is actually jelly material and not plasteramic. No problem for me! This is a really fun, trendy accessory that I will wear all summer. I certainly feel fine spending $25 on it! Not so sure I'd want to spend $195 after I just bought this. If you're interested in the "jelly version", check out both sites. Fornash has more color options (I also love the baby pink!), and at around $36 including shipping, its a steal!

My watch:Tomorrow my friend and I are going to the outlet malls. I hope to find some great Spring clothes to compliment my new white watch. Also, I will buying some white jeans a.s.ap.! Thanks for all your comments! I'm so glad I asked! :)

Good for you Miss Princess, you can't go wrong with that one. We enjoy wearing our Lilly ones, but still love the stainless!

Hope you two have a stellar weekend!

While I think the watch is just precious...when I look at the photo of Sandra, I remember how much I LOVED that movie...Just loved it! Now, look at her life!!! It is sooooo sad.

Ahhh..I wrote about my favorite watch I own in a post a while back (a stainless steel cartier) and in the end of the post I talked about how much I am obsessed with white watches. I seriously have to get myself one. They are so fun and yours is really cute! Good luck at the outlets, white watches make all the spring/summer clothes look so chic.

I am so getting one for spring but will pop for the budget version as I am sure I will never wear it after this spring/summer. IT is a fun, trendy item!
