Heralded by designers Charles Lichaa and Anthony Nohra, 8 Other Reasons features pieces that range from weighty and masculine chain necklaces to the eye-popping multistone neck pieces, brushed metals and architectural moldings. You can’t help but the love the spikes and chain links that are pictured in the statement necklaces and over-sized bracelets above. The edgy pieces are absolute musts in the season’s favorite jewelry shade and what’s more they are all under $100!
I’m a huge fan of Michael Kors, both as a designer and a TV Personality/judge on Project Runway, so when I, along with 100 other influencers, were selected by Michael Kors to celebrate the release of their Paris Limited Edition Runway Watch, I jumped at the chance to participate. Now I have declared my love for rose gold several times, so discussing how I will style this watch was very easy. First a little about the beautiful Michael Kors Watch:
The dazzling chronograph, the second release in a series of destination-inspired watches (the New York Limited Edition Watch was the first), is an adaptation of the best-selling Michael Kors Runway style. The timepiece is rendered in a rose gold tone and has a sporty masculine look. In paying homage to the iconic city, the dial displays the edition number and the words “Paris” in script, while the case-back features an etched graphic of the skyline with the Eiffel Tower at its center. Additionally, the dial is embellished with a 2.5 mm diamond at the number-12 index, adding a sense of jet-set glamour to the iconic style.
“Paris has always had—and will always have—a special place in my heart. I have nothing but fond memories of working there over a decade ago, and last year we opened one of our biggest Michael Kors flagships on Rue Saint Honoré,” says Kors. “And of course, I love the Parisian style! It’s glamorous, sporty and timeless—just like this watch.”
As for what I’d style it with, I envision pairing this chic Parisian-inspired watch with a look that’s both feminine and tough – both dominate traits of my personality. I think the vintage Ryu Lace dress is perfect to offset the gold in the watch and I love the color chocolate paired with rose gold and I love the silhouette of the Muubaa Monteria Dark Chocolate leather jacket and of course, you bring the entire look together with an edgy pump that features attributes of both the dress and the jacket – girly and edgy.
The Paris Limited Edition Runway Watch is presented in a luxe brown collector’s box with a plush interior. A “Michael Kors Limited Edition” plaque is nestled inside the box, elevating the exclusivity.
