splurge vs. steal: rubber watch

It's fair to say that many of these cute rubber watches I've been seeing lately have caught my attention.

But you should also know that I am not a watch person. I'm actually, not much of a jewelry person. (gasp!) I haven't worn a watch since I was in middle school and I usually am relying on some guy I happen to be around if I need to know what time it is. Let me explain that... I usually rely on guys for the time because most men still wear watches. It's some rite of passage, I guess...just like carrying a pocketknife. Anywho, most men that I know wear watches every day, and thus I often ask them the time. Also, my cell phone is not glued to my hip or head so I don't always have it on me.

So...needless to say, I was VERY interested when I started seeing these cute rubber watches popping up everywhere. I love that most of them are large faced...almost like a men's watch and soft or flexible. Some of my favorites are...

Splurge: Adidas watch $56.25
Splurge: Swiss Legend Commander watch $105.00

I love them, but I'm not buying a watch for what I could buy a whole outfit for.

That's why I was overjoyed when I saw this guy at my local Wal-Mart (Wally World, Blue Dot Boutique, or whatever bourgeosie name you give it...)

Steal: Walmart $9.98!

I apologize for all of y'all having to look at my freckled arm. :( I couldn't find the "stock" picture of it on Walmart's, you get the freckled whiteness. Oh, and the best part? This watch cost $9.98!! That's cheap enough that I could go back and get the teal one...
