Perhaps that explains why, despite my ever-changing wardrobe and a lunch box full of quirky jewelry, I usually stick to a few beloved accessories. My black choker, my silver vintage necklace, and a couple of pairs of earrings. Bracelets usually don’t fit right, so my wrists remain regrettably bare. That all changed a couple of weeks ago with the arrival of a small package.
“You have a present, Mommy!” Ruby exclaimed as soon as I walked through the door from work. “Can I open it?” She pointed to the unopened brown box. “Not right now,” I said in an unsuccessful attempt to dissuade her. I knew the box contained my new watch, and I did not want anything to happen to it. I had been graciously invited to review Jord’s new Frankie 35 series featuring smaller faces. Ruby was so excited, and truthfully so was I, that I relented. (Flora looked on from her activity chair, drooly and adorable as ever.) With dramatic flair, I slid open the delightful wooden box. Wrapped around the world’s cutest pillow was a gorgeous wooden timepiece.
“Can you put it on?!” Ruby pleaded. I slid it over my wrist only to discover that it was too tight. I must have measured my wrist wrong. I wasn’t concerned because extra links were also in the box. I managed to distract Ruby with Calliou while I put an extra link in the band. Much, much better.
I couldn’t be happier with the design and comfortable fit of the Frankie 35 zebrawood and navy watch. The face is the perfect size for my wrist. The navy color is surprisingly versatile. A fashion statement that is also useful in telling time? I think is another thing that I will be “un-saturatable” on. This time, Brian understands.

|I get lots of "I don't know how you walk in those!" comments whenever I rock these shoes. The chunky platform and padded insole actually make them super-comfortable. Definitely one of my faves right now!|
