Absolutely blown away by "Baking cupcakes, brownies, cookies, etc. and eating the batter. Italian Vogue Beauty, March 2008." How on Earth did I miss it? Fantastic cover, inspiring! - I have made a sketch of a new hat after looking at it.

Men watch for woman...Oh yeah...I'd hope...

Kristin said...

That watercolor is gorgeous!! I would rock that watch with a Hanes mens tank, suspenders (because I'm obsessed with them right now for some reason) and, like Belle said, cut offs. Fabulous giveaway!

Diana said...

I love the classic style of Orient watches. It would go with just about anything, adding a nice touch of professional polish. I could see wearing it with a my favorite drapey teal blouse and a black pencil skirt for an interview ready ensemble!

XOXO's to you lovely CC! Have a great Monday!

Erika said...

LOVE the vintage Vogue cover.

NEED the Kamilla and Antonio Headband.

Why do I want that Orient watch? It retains a bit of masculinity in style, but could look so feminine when paired with a tiny cocktail dress. Gorgeous! :)

Brunch at Saks said...

Oh I love this watch! Men's watches can look so sexy on women! I would totally wear this with a pair of jeans, heels, and flowy blouse. But honestly, this watch could go with anything!

I love that watch because it seems so versatile, like it would go with everything.

Ooh nice! I love the no-nonsense look of men's watches. Hmm I'd wear this with a ruffled black top, high-waisted denim skirt, black ankle booties, and a straw fedora--clean and polished.

Wanderlusting said...

gorgeous! YOU have great taste CC - love the J|C Balmain beauties!

emma said...

That watch is stunning. Orient watches are timeless (no pun intended) and classic.

Menswear inspired watches call for a sexy dress, a well cut blazer, killer ankle boots, and flowing waves.

the contrast between structure and feminity is always a beautiful luck.

thanks for a great contest!

Terence Sambo said...

Lovely images, wat does bisous mean? :o]

Allison said...

Oooh those Jeffrey Campbell shoes are to DIE for!
And I'm absolutely loving that watch. I think it would look amazing with boyfriend jeans and a cardigan. It's chunky while still being super feminine and cute :)

Hanako66 said...

I love just about everything...gorgeous!

that watch is so perfect and timeless...I am loving the oversized mens watches with feminine looks for a bit of an edge!

Joby said...

I would wear it with a very wide legged pair of pin stiped trousers, , high buttoned pin tuck blouse. Its absolutely divine, so gorgeously chunky

Miss Yaya said...

Diego R. Wyatt said...

I LOVE the Vogue Beauty cover...it is amazing, the bored housewife look is great. I also love the pic of the models kicking back in sneakers. I love seeing glamazons pared down and pedestrian.

Legallyblondemel said...

You know, I've been snobby about the ankle bootie trend, but those Loub's are delicious. So delicate and pretty. This is a good lesson in not writing something off wholesale ...

Brigadeiro said...

That Vogue cover is divine!
xx

MizzJ said...

I love that photo of Helena Christenson, she looks so elfin and I didn't recognize her at all.

With a classic men's watch like that, I would pair it with an oversized white striped men's shirt, belted with a brown braided belt, gladiators, and a fedora - perfect for summer!

Marian said...

oh CC i love this CC loves post! i adore the balmain-esque jeffrey campbell heels,adoring the lace boots. every piece is wonderful darling.
oh that ORIENT watch is wonderful, I would like to enter competition by stating how I would wear it.
I would wear the watch with a T.M Lewin white shirt,vintage Levi boyfriend cut jeans,open toe multi strap platform heels. I would wear the shirt tucked in and would wear the watch with my usual mix of vintage gold, silver bangles,studded cuffs,ethnic beads, frienship bracelets etc.

big kiss

Little Rus said...

Oh, you know, CC, I had that B&W photo of "a girl and a fish" for ages and never new it was Helena's work!
Love chunky watches like this Orient one, by the way. I'd rather wear a statement watch than jewellery, to be honest.
P.S. Read your interview - it was such a great idea and it was wonderful to know you better.

Girl Japan: April Marie Claire said...

Well count me in! This is a fab, fab post CC!!! I want the watch because... embarrassingly so-- I don't own one, never had or I did but never used it ..... relied on my cell phone for the time..

Anika said...

Wow, it would appear that I love what you love CC ;)

Especially that fabulous Spanish Vogue editorial (April 08).

I adore that Orient watch to the nth degree! It epitomises EVERYTHING I look for in a watch; oversized, stainless steel, chic, classic, fabulous!

I would style it with anything and everything. I'd pair it with a feminine floral frock, with a ballgown and even for a spot of golf (if I played ;)

Wana said...

hey CC!! looove the alexander mcqueen pleated blousee!!

Eda said...

The watch is so pretty...what I like the most about it is the size...it's easy to check the time without being noticed...Trust me, this is important when you are trying to count the number of breaths a person takes during a minute :). I would wear it with classic jeans and shirts, but I would also wear it with a romantic dress.

J'Adore Fashion said...

j'adore christian louboutins!
love men's watch for women especially this Orient watch--Love the stainless color, and its classic look. I will love to enter the giveaway.
I could use this Orient watch for any outfit, but specifically i will wear is with a drop crotch pants or Hareem pants, with a racer or T sheer tank and a ysl tribute pumps. I will pair the watcg with silver, gold bracelets, silver/gold rings!!

Love that painting of Laura Trevey. And the old Vogue cover is impressive!
That watch reminds me a lot of a Julia Restoin-Roitfeld editorial. Love "masculine" accessories for women.

Vik said...

What a gorgeous watch! I'm sure my boyfriend would absolutely love it!

Stephanie said...

Men's watches for women... such a good idea! With the chunky fashion trend now, it's a perfect fit. It would be great with a collared button-down and high waisted skirt at work. Very classy.
