Last year a reader introduced me to the 15 Dollar Store. Yup, that’s the name of the store and yes, all apparel and accessories are just $15. Though I love a great deal, I value quality more than anything. So when the people at15 Dollar Store presented me with the opportunity to review one of their items, I jumped at the chance.

Since I’m obsessed with chunky, men’s inspired watches, I decided to review the Geneva crystal and mother of pearl link watch in rose gold. It kind of reminds me of Michael Kors watches, which cost hundreds of dollars, but this one was a fraction of the cost.

As soon as I took it out of the box, I was impressed with the weight. Sometimes “cheap” accessories feel light and flimsy but this wasn’t one of those cases. The face of the watch felt pretty hefty. I was also expecting the band to look at bit tarnished or scratch easily but after two weeks of constant wear, it’s in pristine condition. I’ve received a few compliments while wearing the watch and the gold tone finish and crystals give it a luxe feel, even though it was less than $20.

My only minor issue, and maybe this is limited to women with really teeny wrists, is it’s a bit oversized so it doesn’t fit snug on my wrist. It practically falls to the middle of my hand. I like the look of the oversized watch {kinda like I’m wearing my guy’s accessories} but the feel of it can get a bit annoying since it falls below my wrist.

Other than the small sizing issue, I’m happy with the watch. Like most people, I’m so used to looking at my phone for the time, so I actually didn’t own a watch until now, but I’ve been wearing this one almost every day for the past two weeks.

  1. Love the watch! It is similar to the Michael Kors version. I liked the 15 Dollar Store fanpage. Alexi Smith
    I already like your page 🙂

  2. $15 Store saved a performance I had to do 2 yrs ago. We had 6 girls w/ all different size feet (one was a 3.5 & 5 in her feet – we needed help). But we wanted to maintain a budget and find boots that went with out Matrix theme & this site worked!
