Sometimes I see photos of Victoria Beckham and I wonder if we actually live in separate universes. Her’s is a world where you can go anywhere and 4+ inch heels seem to be the appropriate footwear choice. When my day calls for those shoes I cringe and throw a pair of additional flats into my bag. Nonetheless, seeing photos of her makes me want to be a person who wears heels more often. Though Victoria never looks comfy, she always looks fabulous. This outfit is no exception – sleek, sexy and pretty simple, but the bright yellow dress gives it the pop of color it needs to be defined as Very Victoria.

Last year during the annual Venice Film Festival in Italy Eva Mendes attended a dinner party hosted by Jaeger Le-Coultre looking like the summer goddess that she is. The actress wore a flowy white Chloé maxi dress which she accessorized with cork wedges and a luxurious diamond watch by Jaeger Le-Coultre. It’s a great summer look for a semi-formal event like a sophisticated garden party or any other outdoor event. Recreate Eva’s boho look with our equally stylish yet budget-friendly picks below.

I know she’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but I just love Victoria Beckham‘s style. Yes, she is painfully thin and yes, she wears painfully tall, often incomprehensible heels, but I think she always looks chic. Same holds true for her clothing line. Many celebrity clothing lines crash and burn, but hers has seemingly taken off nicely with no turbulence in sight. While out and about in NYC last September, Mrs. Beckham wore a delightfully retro sheath dress from her own line. Love that she paired it with a skinny black belt, the always enviable Hermés Birkin and the lustworthy YSL Tribtoo Pumps. Personally, I would have worn black pumps like the model, but all in all it’s a fantastic look.

Let the sun shine! That’s exactly what Diane Kruger did 10 months ago at the Berlin photocall for Inglourious Basterds. Her itsy bitsy (that’s my speak for super short) dress by Louis Vuitton featured sailor-like buttons, side pockets and a bow across the chest which playfully complimented the color and cut. Though her outfit was accessorized with earrings, a watch and open toe shoes, they were all subdued to allow the dress to shine, almost literally, on its own.

I’m a watch person. When it comes to watches, there are two camps: those who always wear a watch, and those who are always asking the time. I can go without earrings, necklaces—all jewelry, in fact—but unless I’m on the beach or in the shower, there is a watch on my left wrist. As a devoted watch wearer, I have strict standards when it comes to watches: they must have numerals, the date if possible, must comfortably fit my wrist, and be totally functional. The Montres de Fleur Barrel Watch by Inexpensive Watches fit nearly all my criteria.

Before I received the Montres de Fleur Barrel Watch, I have to admit that I really didn’t have high hopes—I couldn’t imagine that a watch that costs less than $15 would have much to offer. But upon opening the package, I was pleasantly surprised by how much more expensive the watch looked than it actually is. I also really liked the fact that the watch face is large and easy-to-read, and that it has Roman numerals (which I prefer). But would it actually work? I was about to see.

I set the watch with no problems, synchronizing it with my usual timepiece to see if it would keep time. Although the band is leather, it was quite stiff, so it wasn’t the easiest watch to put on, but I wore it and from the moment I set the watch, it has kept time quite nicely. I’ve had it for several weeks and it’s still ticking away without issue.

Bottom Line

Overall, this is a fashionable and functional watch that is definitely worth the money (yeah, all 12 bucks). Its classic tank shape makes it appropriate with both business attire and casual wear, but the white strap keeps the watch looking fresh and light.

PROS:

  • The price! So inexpensive and the site offers a money-back guarantee.
  • Looks very classy on. An attractive watch.
  • Easy-to-read and set. Functional and fashionable.

CONS:

  • Leather band felt more like it was synthetic.
  • Band remained stiff which caused the watch to spin a little on the wrist.
  • If you have small wrists, the band will be too big. I had it as tight as it would go and it was still a little large.
