4 Luxury Watches and What They Say About Your Sense of Fashion

In modern times, the wrist watch has come to be accepted as a symbol of one’s sense of fashion and financial status.

Most people who buy luxury watches are not merely interested in telling time. They are keen to make a statement about their sense of fashion.

Men especially don an expensive watch to show that they have expensive taste. A luxury designer watch on a man’s wrist is the first indication that the man can afford the finer things in life. As such, a luxury watch is one sure way to get a lady to notice you.

For most men, the watch is probably the only jewelry in the attire. It is therefore imperative to don a bold time piece that will make you stand out while at the same time complementing your style. You can find a wide selection of luxury watches on http://www.essential-watches.com/.

Below is a selection of luxury watches that will say volumes about your sense of fashion:

The Timex watch

Timex is a classic watch that says you are cultured. A Timex also shows you are reliable. If you are wearing a Timex, your clothing should be classy, but not fancy. A close alternative to Timex is a Braun watch, especially one fitted with a chronograph.

Casio

A Casio says that you lead an active life and you require a reliable and durable watch. It could also say that you are more practical, and fashion is not the first thing on your mind. Your main goal when wearing a Casio will be correctness of time.

On the flipside, a Casio fits well with branded sports gear. If you are at a sports event, wearing a Casio as part of your sports attire will show you have high end taste.

One thing you must never do is pair your Casio with formal attire, even if you don’t care about fashion.

Rolex

It is a universally known fact that the Rolex is a very expensive watch. Because of this fact, you make a better statement about yourself if you are not showy about it.

Showing off your Rolex states that you lack class. One thing you need to know is that if you are wearing a Rolex, you don’t need to show off to get it noticed. People will just notice.

If you have a quietly-intense personality, the Rolex was made for you. This is because people who exude intensity approach things with an air of nonchalance. Pair your Rolex with a well-cut suit and your look will speak volumes.

IWC Schaffhausen

An IWC is a classic, but unlike the Timex, it has a rugged appearance about it. It is a great all-purpose watch that goes with all occasions.

If you usually find it difficult to pair watches with clothing, an IWC will make it easy for you and you will end up looking very classy without any effort at all.

Besides your ability to afford one, buying a luxury watch will make a positive fashion statement and portray your personality. A Timex might suit you better than a Rolex. At other times, a Casio might be better suited for the occasion. Try them out and decide which one says what you want to say about yourself.

5 Luxury Items We Can’t Help But Covet

What’s something we fashion-obsessed yet not loaded types are all guilty of? Envy, of course.  “Why does so-and-so get to rock those Louis sneakers and flawless plastic surgery while I’m stuck here with my PF Flyers, doomed to remove pimples naturally?!” Our only solace is the occasion sale or giveaway. And while we’re sure our cult fashion favorites won’t lose their hefty price tags completely, these are the uber-luxury items that we’ll be on the look out for in retailers’ Sale aisle or section:

Burberry Sandringham Slim Fit Trench Coat

The Burberry Sandringham Slim Fit Trench Coat: regularly $1,795

Why we love it:  This iconic coat has a rich military history which is reflected in the epaulettes on the shoulder, the gun flap fastens at the chest and a storm shield cover on the upper back. Made of tightly woven yet lightweight breathable cloth, the coat is protective against wind and rain. And, believe it or not, this coat was originally designed by Thomas Burberry back in 1879! The Sandringham takes this classic coat and updates it slightly with a slimmer fit that nips in at the waist. The details and tradition of the coat, paired with the famous Burberry check, have landed this item on our must have list.

A blended Burberry scarf: regularly $395

Why we love it:  This lightweight scarf looks great paired with a classic trench. Try the Check Wool Silk Scarf in Trench Check or the Check Wool Silk Gauze Scarf in Stone Check. No matter which material feels better to you (or which you can find a better deal for) you can’t lose!

Céline Leather Mini Luggage Tote

Céline Leather Mini Luggage Tote: regularly $2,900 and up

Why we love it:  It’s hard to go wrong with such a beautiful roomy structured tote bag. It looks great in almost every style and color from black pebbled leather to a pop of burgundy. Be wary though, Céline still doesn’t sell bags online and only certain stores sell them. (Call Barney’s or Nordstrom to see if the store near you carrie.s Céline or if you’re lucky enough to live in a big city, check there website. They have a few boutiques in Manhattan and other major cities as well as the Céline salon at Bergdorf Goodman in NY.)

christian-louboutin-pigalle-stilettos

Louboutin Stilettos: regularly $795- $845

Why we love them:  They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts but when it comes to shoes it’s the bottom!  There’s nothing more fashionable and recognizable then those red soles. For a great nude peep toe try Flo, which features a petite platform and comes in a range of “nudes” from light Lea to the darker Ada. Or opt for a classic pump such as the New Simple Pump which is sure to be your next go-to shoe.

Chanel Classic Flap Bag: regularly $4,900

Why we love it:  Chanel is the epitome of fashion. It’s classic, timeless and only gets better with age. Some people literally purchase Chanel purses as investment pieces. With its quilted design, double C closure, and chain link handle, this Chanel bag goes with everything.

Luxury Fashion Advice – Riding In Style

Concierge has connections to limousine rental services so that you can enjoy the luxury and prestige of arriving in style at any event without dealing with the hassles. The most popular events for limousines are weddings, concerts, proms, birthday parties, bar mitzvahs and anniversaries. But limos are fun no matter what the occasion.

Before you contact us to order your luxury limousine rental, you might want to do a little homework. You want to consider how many people will be with you, how long you need the limo and how far you’ll be going. Rates are usually determined by the hour, so by carefully planning, you can have a pretty good idea of what the limo will cost. You also want to get the right limo—not too small and not too large. Your guests should be comfortable, not crammed in the limo like sardines.

The most common limousines are Lincoln Town Cars, but some companies have Mercedes and specialty vehicles too. A 12 passenger limo will comfortably hold up to ten passengers. Similarly, six, eight and ten passenger limos will hold four, six and eight passengers respectively. If you’re taking your entire posse with you, you’ll want a larger limo, like an Escalade or Navigator. If there are twenty people in your party, a Hummer is probably the best solution. From there, you’ll need a limousine bus. Classic cars, like Rolls Royces, are also available for smaller parties.

Don’t pick the cheapest deal you can find. You get what you pay for, so make sure you’re getting what you need. Ask if the limo has music or if you need to bring your own mix CD or MP3 player. Make sure the limo has enough room for a couple extra guests, just in case you run into some extra friends. Make a budget and stick to it. We can recommend the best companies and the best limo for your needs.

If you plan to drink during the ride, bring along some ice, mixers and the beverage of your choice. Tell the driver where you want to stop and how long you’ll be at each stop.

The best way to deal with the whole limousine rental process is to let VIP Concierge handle the details. You tell us what you need, what you want and when you want it. We’ll take care of the rest. Because we have a long-established record of dealing with limousine rental services, and we can get you the best deal possible. Look at it this way. You hired a florist to handle the floral arrangements for your wedding, so why not hire a professional to set up your limousine needs? It’s important to reserve your limo early for the best selection, especially if you’re planning to celebrate during the busy season, like graduation, Christmas or Valentine’s Day.

Showing up in a limousine to important events is the best way to show that you’ve not only made it, you have arrived. You can be sure that by setting up your limousine rental service through VIP Concierge, you’ll get the best deal and have the best experience.
