Sunday Steals: MICHAEL Michael Kors Round Tortoise and Gold Bracelet Watch on a Budget

Darlings, on the left you will find the magnificent MICHAEL Michael Kors Round Tortoise and Gold Bracelet Watch; to the right savor the stunning style of Shock Boutique’s tantalizing Two-Tone Watch in Tortoise/Gold.

While there is no denying the fact that the MICHAEL Michael Kors marvel is constructed out of true gold detailing, whereas the Shock Boutique piece is made of faux; for just $68.00, in comparison to the $250.00 required to make Michael your boy wonder, it is just as capable of lending a flirty yet masculine look to your dainty wrist – at a price fit for the budget babe!

So mes chéris, what are you up to today? Will your AmEx take a beating with a splurge, or will you stay safe and thrifty with a frugal buy?


Fashionably yours!

mmm now this is a hard choice. I really like both of them! I'd probably choose the shock boutique one because the numbers aren't as faint as the other one. :)

Again fantastic find! I am very happy with my MK watch so I think I'll stick with what I have :)

Joanne said...

For the $250 Kors watch, I can't even read the time! The pale numbers and hands blend right in with the face. Please, I'll definitely go with Shock Boutique ...

Chic Geek said...

Hmmm, I really want to get the cheaper version of this watch because I actually wanted this for Christmas but the MK ones are kind of expensive!

Donna ♥ Baby said...

oh my gad. those are beautiful!

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

i think they're both great watches and look super similar, but $68 is way more affordable....so i could even get 2. :)

This is so cool. Beautiful watch. I did find my self a sightly cheap cheap cheap version of this. You have been inspiring. Its really a far cry from Shock boutique, but I get compliments on it. & I have the time now without looking on my cell.

ivy's closet said...

Awesome find! Thank you.

Jessica said...

Realistically, I'd probably splurge on the brand name ones (I like good watches). But the cheaper one is a dead ringer! Nice find (as always), Erika!

Natasha said...

I love the Shock Boutique version. Nothing gets me more like tortoise and gold. Hope you're having a good Sunday, E. Happy Holidays.

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

Fashionista.com has a column called "Adventures in copyright." YOU WOULD TOTALLY ROCK IT. These look the exact same. And quite frankly, I can't spend $250 on a watch!

The Shock one is super cute but I have to say that no one can beat M.Kors on watches!

HA! My boss just bought a Micheal Kors watch for his girlfriend for xmas! But the Shock Boutique one is super cute too!

Cafe Pasadena said...

The watches wood bee fine with me xcept I don't like the coloring of the bands.

Btw, how's the weather in your area?

Haute World said...

Love the retro vibe of these watches! I'd probably go for the steal since they look so similar and I have too many watches already!

Antonia at Swedish Love Affair said...

This design is really nice, and they're really similar! However, I would rather spend 250 for the real thing than 68 for a faux=)

Iben said...

I must say, I would have went for the cheapest one:D They are so similar that it's hard to tell the difference! I spent all of my money on gifts, but i managed to squeeze in a fake mongolian sheep fur from Ebay:) Have an amazing evening!

Love iben

AH said...

great find! i'd be thrifty, they're so similar, and i like to have a lot of different watches rather than just one designer watch...

Sootjeelina said...

They both look awesome, it's like a watch and a bracelet all in one! I do love the Michael Kors one better, but the other who looks just alike for that price? Consider me safe and thrifty.
Btw, thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, I really appreciate it

xoxo Sootjeelina <3

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I would totally splurge on this.

Emily said...

I want a michael kors watch for christmas so bad!!! I think I would get the real one :)

Anna Gray said...

Those are stunning watches! ^_^

Grace said...

I normally don't wear watches, but I like the look of these! I love the subtly menswear vibe of them.

ryan said...

This one is tough, but I am going with Michael Kors this time : )

Hope Adela said...

was just looking at MK watches today in fact

meg said...

This is just so cool. I'm so glad you found this. Love it from Shock Boutique.

Samantha Elisabeth said...

Oh I absolutely adore this find! So perfect, and I need a new watch!

Yvonne said...

I own 8 different watches! My husband bought me the Fossil Boyfriend watch for Christmas a couple years ago and I have forsaken all others. It would be folly for me to purchase either of these as I am stuck on my Fossil watch but if I HAD to choose one> I would go with the MK.

MK all the way...

Sherin said...

I always splurge on watches! I love the Micheal Kors one. It looks stunning.

Pearl Westwood said...

I absolutely love this design of watch, I would go with the Kors thoughas I like the quality and a watch is always an investment.

Rachel said...

I absolutely LOVE my Michael Kors watches so I can't pass up a watch by MK! They're perfect!!

Sara Bentley @ Purses Pastries Etc... said...

You know, I've never been a huge, huge fan of tortoise on watches but these look really appealing! Might even go with the Shock version :)

janettaylor said...

I love Michael by MK!

ediot said...

I actually would like the one to the right- but i would even more like a watch like that- just in gold..
