Did I tell you what Ben Blair gave me for my birthday? This rad watch.

When the hip girls from Brooklyn would move to my neighborhood in New York, I would study them for the latest in cool. Amy Palmer, who is effortlessly stylish, would wear a Casio. Or sometimes a calculator watch (remember those?).

I like that watch! I want a gold Timex that has diamonds on the face. See Amazon.

My dad has worn that watch for the last 30 years! I'll have to tell him how fashionable he is. :)

Thanks for the laugh – that's SNL clip was awesome!

YESSS! I'm stylish, finally. Wait… does it count if I'm wearing the cheapy black rubber version and have been since I was about 8 years old? My watch tan line is blinding! I also feel rather dangerous, knowing the name of my watch is "THE ILLUMINATOR". Maybe when this sucker dies I'll upgrade to your swanky version ;) Does your's tell you what day of the week it is? Having small children I kinda find that function amusingly useful.

Oh my goodness…I had THAT watch, well actually I still do but I don't wear it…hmmm it is vintage now isn't it? I also had that very same issue of Seventeen-I remember how I couldn't wait for the new issues to be released! Ohhhh remember Bonne Bell and Love's Baby Soft!

Gorgeous watch – it reminds me of the one my mom used to wear. She looked so cool! I'm going to have to look into getting myself one of those.

Looks familiar.

I've never owned a watch or wore a watch. I should ask Amy to help me find a cool one. I do like her calculator watch a lot.


12 Sara Clifton June 26, 2009 at 10:18 pm

Oh, Amy and her covetable fashion sense. Have you seen those amazing leather boots???


13 Wendy June 27, 2009 at 11:41 pm

It makes me want to find my old swatch watch with the little rubber-band like protector on the face.


14 sara June 28, 2009 at 12:30 pm

Amy P. is the coolest. Which is why I've been copying her for the past 13 years.


15 sienna June 28, 2009 at 6:02 pm

oh i agree with sara and da, seen the day amy joined our family, we've been trying to be just like her. great watch.


16 June 28, 2009 at 8:28 pm

Aaahh, this watch takes me back to a time I'm not sure I want to remember. Very groovy nonetheless.


17 Brooke Reynolds June 30, 2009 at 12:06 am

Amy Palmer is the coolest. I used to try and shop with her as often as possible just hoping some of that style would brush off on me. I'm still waiting.

I love this watch I’ve been trying to find it so I can buy it :(
