I have an awful lot of watches, and most of them are chunky, men’s style watches; I own very few pretty watches. So when British watch designers Olivia Burton got in touch to see if I might like to review any of their designs, I seized the opportunity to have a delicate timepiece for the summer. I chose the Wonderland Dusky Pink and Gold watch – the strap is real leather and a beautiful soft pink, and the face has Roman numerals: they always make a watch look more elegant in my opinion… it has to be the prettiest watch I own.
Such a lovely piece deserved lots of feminine touches in my outfit: a lace tank layered with a short white dress (last seen worn as a skirt here) over my Laura Ashley floral trousers and strappy bow sandals from last year. The combination of a silk headscarf and off white sunglasses gave the outfit that 1930s Riviera look – I was thinking Diana Rigg in Evil Under the Sun (I loved Agatha Christie films as a kid and thought she looked amazing in that one). Give them all a bit of a twirl to show off those layers – job done!
Do you ever channel a look from an old movie now and then: what touches do you find give an outfit a certain “look” from a particular era? And are you a fan of pretty, delicate watches or chunky masculine ones? Do share in the comments!
