should i splurge??

Okay, so if you know me at all, you know I LOVE a good deal.  

It's SO hard for me to splurge on things for myself, so I make Matt splurge on me!! HaHa!! I usually ask him for my "splurge" items for Christmas or my birthday. It makes shopping easy for him because it's just one gift and he's done!!

So I have decided that this year I want a new watch. 

I have been eyeing this Michael Kors watch for quite some time.  I would never pay $195 for a watch, but there is a Macy's Friends & Family 25% off coupon that I can use to get 25% off, so it would be $146.25 plus tax. Not too bad!!
But while looking at the Michael Kors watch at Macy's, I found this  Fossil watch for only $105. So with the coupon I could get it for $78.75 plus tax.  That's about a $70 difference from the Michael Kors watch.  
So what should I ask for??

  Should I splurge on the Michael Kors watch I originally wanted or should I go for the cheaper Fossil watch because it's a better deal?

I have the MK watch myself -- got it for my birthday a couple of years ago. I LOVE IT! It goes with everything! This watch, as well as a couple of other MK watches (I'm kind of obsessed) were purchased at Nordstrom because Nordy's has such great customer service and has been so kind when I've had to bring my MK watches in for (minor) repair. All that to say: Ask Santa for MK! Then be amazed by how pretty it makes your wrist!

Splurge!!

Your choice! :) Just as a note, it is possible that the MK watch is actually made by Fossil. I know Fossil does manufacture some designer watches for certain labels (Kenneth Cole, for example). Just a thought, especially since they seem so similar (although I will say that the MK does have a subtle richer look).

I personally like the Fossil one! & my Fossil watches have ALWAYS lasted forever - that's all I've ever worn & the one I have now I think is four years old & looks great!

I love the MK! I actually have the Fossil...got it a couple years ago and after I got it I saw the MK one. Splurge!!

Christine is right, MK is made by Fossil, but I do like that watch a lot! It does look a little classier and cleaner.
Either one is cute though :)
