Please Toy with me

January 26, 2010

Some of you may recall when we lost our minds at the mall last April right before one of several trips to the Big Apple. One of the items we picked up and still love just as much to this day is that of our big, beautiful black ToyWatch.

2009 saw a whole lot of boyfriends. No, not actual boyfriends, rather boyfriend cardigans, boyfriend jeans and boyfriend watches. Frankly, we loved and also love that it’s continuing into the new year because we adore our Toy Watch so much we figured we’d also devote a post to them.

These fun and fashionable watches may not strike you as sophisticated, but that’s exactly the point. Toy Watches are lightweight, oversized plastic time pieces designed to be sleek and unexpected. If you like your watches to be understated, ToyWatch is not for you.  Brought to the US only back in 2006, the brand ignited a firestorm in the fashion, design and accessories industries and got the press talking. A lot.

We love ToyWatch for being bold, unique and eye-catching. Have one of these on your wrists and you’re sure to gather compliments. (We have our friend, Annie to thank for introducing us!)

You can find ToyWatch watches  at www.toywatchusa.com, and in more than 300 fine stores, including Barney’s, Henri Bendel, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bloomingdales. Fans, just like ourselves, include Oprah, Michelle Obama, Madonna, Sienna Miller, Clive Owen, Jessica Alba, Owen Wilson, Uma Thurman and Katie Holmes.

My, aren’t we in good company! Now if only we could get one in every color in the rainbow!
