In life, I just follow a handful of simple rules. They might seem trivial at first, but they actually carry a lot of weight to them.
The way I think reflects a lot in how I dress, given how humans in general move according to changes in the environment, and behave around things that point towards their own well-being. Or what they think is good for them.
I often tell myself to simplify as much as I can, and at first, it was quite the hurdle. With my anxious mind constantly on overdrive, it took me years to be comfortable with just being myself and not trying to achieve other people’s goals. Recently, I’ve been participating in things that are reminding me once again why I started doing what I’m doing in the first place. Totally feels good to free yourself of unnecessary thoughts!
Speaking of simplifying, I’m all about functionality nowadays. My friends have been telling me that I’ve become a full-fledged tita (aunt) with how I move, dress, and act. But I can’t stress enough the importance of good basics that you can spice up with accessories. Statement earrings are great for days when I don’t have time to fix my hair anymore – they instantly make me look like I actually made an effort when I totally didn’t.
Watches, of course, are my go-to arm candy. This one from Charriol is super unique. I find this twist-style bracelet-watch hybrid all sorts of clever!
Feel as regal as a Roman Empress with a timepiece worthy of a gladiatrix: in a new departure from CHARRIOL’s usual bracelet or bangle strap, ‘TWIST’ inspires a new, more feminine way of wearing a watch.
CHARRIOL’s signature twisted steel cables are appreciated for their flexibility and comfort and are now woven into the serpentine ‘TWIST’ timepiece, embellished with yellow-gold PVD end-pieces and dainty clips bearing the CHARRIOL ‘C’ insignia. Sure to make a bold and glamorous statement, the elegant twisted strap is crafted from five slender 2mm cables and measures a dramatic 35 cm in length (small, medium and large available.) The watch is available in pink-gold or yellow-gold plating versions.
A classical touch is seen on the slightly domed glass case, which encases a shimmering mother-of- pearl Art Deco-etched dial set with 12 zirconia. The ‘CHARRIOL’ logo sits proudly at 12 o’clock and the ‘Swiss Made’ seal on the lower dial is a mark of distinction.
Wear this timepiece on bare arms with a simple vest and jeans, add a swish touch to the office, or use it to accessorize a fluid evening gown.
