“Watch” For Spring Color!

Got the time?  If you looked at your wrist and yawned, it’s time to spring into some seriously fun color — and  you don’t have to give up functionality or style to do so.  It’s all about making your timepiece match your mood as you transition from a grey winter to a vibrant spring.

Personally, I like to see women with a watch that says “I’m a woman who knows there’s a time for everything!”  And that kind of woman is going to gravitate toward a timepiece like the Fossil Riley Pink Dial Multifunction Watch.  While the pink dial shouts a girlish “IT’S SPRINGTIME!”, the goldtone stainless steel bracelet speaks to no-nonsense feminine savvy.

Of course, green is the archetypal color of spring (and St. Patrick’s Day, we might add.)  That’s why I recommend the uber-green  kate spade new york “Metro” Bright Green Silicone Strap Watch.  Green enough to make anyone yearn for the first breathless blooms of spring, this timepiece has clean, simple lines that will also appeal to your feminine sense of order and clarity.

Time for a little glamour, girl?  Light up the room with your Versace Vanity Lavender Leather Strap Watch, featuring lavender croco-embossed calfskin with 2 Medusa studs.  It’s glitzy in a good way.

Perhaps your female significant other is a bit more understated.  Then I suggest Michael Kors “Channing” Turquoise Dial Goldtone 3-Hand Watch.  The turquoise dial pops with spring color but the the goldtone stainless steel band is more reserved.  This watch is “Springy”, but not un-sprung, if you catch my drift.

For the “Blue Man” in your life, (or if you’re a “Blue Man” yourself), strap on the Fossil Grant Men’s Chronograph Watch.  The blue dial pops with spring color from a shiny silvertone stainless steel band.  Pair this watch with complementary-colored apparel (either yellow or something orange-ish), and you’ve made a manly spring statement.

Tick… Tick… Tick… Spring’s almost here! Time to start shopping!

You command attention — from homeroom to lunch — and are sure to shine in this Hailey Logan one-shoulder sequin dress with flattering ruching and a dramatic cutout shoulder.

Last, but certainly not least, the MAC 36 lashes create a striking star power effect.

Introducing Juicy Couture Timepieces: The Ones To Watch!

Juicy Couture  has been a fashion superstar ever since celebrities began sporting the brand’s signature velour tracksuits back in the early 2000’s.  While Dillard’s has carried Juicy Couture fragrances for some time, and recently began offering Juicy Couture sunglasses, we are now proud to extend our line-up with Juicy Couture timepieces.

blog_image_juicy_couture

Like all things Juicy, these watches exude Southern California’s palm-tree ambiance and red-carpet  glamour.  We  especially like the Juicy Couture Pedigree silver bracelet watch with its silvertone-plated stainless steel and oversized XII on the face.   For those in love with shine, the Stella silver bracelet watch — with a Swarovski crystal dial — is the clear alternative!  Go for the gold with the Jetsetter round gold bracelet watch, which has a goldtone dial and crystal bezel.  Think pink with the Pedigree pink silicone watch.

After you pick your timepiece, why not add a pair of Juicy Couture shades like these Aviator Sunglasses?  Then complete your Juicy-self by applying a fragrance like  La La Eau de Parfum Spray.

Juicy Couture has always appealed to the young at heart. Start the clock on a newer, more adventurous you by shopping for a Juicy Couture timepiece now.

Is a watch part of your everyday accessory line-up?
