A few weeks ago I turned the grand old age of 25 and was kindly given some money to treat myself to something nice from a few of my family members. Instead of spending it on bits of make up (which I do not need) I decided to buy something a little bit special, something that would last me a long time and something that I well and truly would love.
Olivia Burton watches for a long time now have intrigued me and have held me captivated with a variety of the most beautiful vintage designs filled with femininity, elegance and beauty. I'm quite the fan of bumble bees so naturally when I saw the Moulded Bee Watch in Navy and Rose Gold from Olivia Burton I knew that this would be the one I would purchase for my birthday. Priced at £125 on the Olivia Burton website it was always going to be an expensive purchase, one that I was more than willing to make, however I managed to find it priced up on The Dressing Room for £75 so immediately rushed online to order it. Ordering from The Dressing Room was a pleasure and their customer service was incredibly helpful after I ended up accidentally ordering two of these watches by mistake; they swiftly sorted my order out for me which was a relief.
After a couple of days my order was soon at my doorstep where I couldn't have been any happier with my very own Olivia Burton watch. The watch is even more beautiful than the pictures could ever depict making me incredibly happy with my first choice. The watch face is quite large on my rather thin wrists whereby if you're inclined to you can see an image of this on my instagram however for some reason this is always what I have preferred when it comes down to watches; I've never been a fan of small watch faces which is the complete opposite to my mum.
I've never had a leather watch before so I think it will take a little getting used to. I find that it isn't as flexible as say my previous watches which have either been stainless steel or the rubber type texture that comes with a Swatch watch however overtime the leather will soften up. Overall I'm so happy with my first purchase from Olivia Burton and already find myself looking at the other truly stunning designs that are available.
