As you can probably guess from the blog post, I’m still in my cheap watch phase. When I saw this watch at Target this afternoon the splash of red across the watch face really caught my eye, so much so that I ended up buying it ($14.99). I thought the floral design was really cute and would be perfect for Spring.
Target’s website has a listing for it and I have to say the stock photo doesn’t do it any justice. In person the metal watch band is shinier and the crystals are very sparkly. It’s definitely not as dull as it seems online.
I was pleased with my purchase until I showed the watch to my mother who’s not the type of person to beat around the bush. She looked at the watch and thought the red was blood spatter and wondered why I’d gotten such a morbid watch. I can sort of see her point. The red pattern has soft, undefined edges and from a distance the red blotches could be mistaken for blood. Or maybe she’s just cray cray from watching too much Law & Order/CSI/Criminal Minds. Whatever the case, now I can’t get the thought out of my head and I’m debating on returning the watch.
What do you think? Do you see flowers, blood spatter or something else (0_o) when you look at the watch?
