So here it is! I'm reaching a new milestone with my 300th post and I'm pretty stoked about the steady rise in viewership. In fact, I received a record number of hits this past Tuesday and the blog has been regularly getting more attention (even after subtracting the positive outliers). We're approximately 2/3rds through August and the blog already has more hits this month than any other. Thank you to everyone who checks out my posts and I encourage you -- beg you -- to comment if you have any thoughts about the items I post (or suggestions for future items). Every comment or subscriber motivates me to improve the quality and update more often.
As per usual, I'm celebrating the occasion with jewelry. The 200th post celebrated Cartier while Harry Winston marked New Years but this entry pays homage to a style rather than brand. Black watches are a versatile accessory that often match both casual and formal. They're growing in popularity but still express greater individuality than their counterparts. The picture directly below comes from Timepiece Trends: Blacked-Out Watches, an article from GQ featured in 2010. I've added a few more of my favorites but there are plenty more great options. The perviously featured Hermes Carre H Watch is but one more option to deck out in black.
