TORTOISE AND THE FAIR: During last year's Christmas shopping, you probably spotted these beautiful tortoise, horn and acrylic contemporary watches from Michael Kors and decided you'd wait until they went on sale to make them yours. With no sale in sight three months later, it's time for Plan B.
Fossil makes three very similar styles of watches as part of their Stella collection. Though the materials don't really compare (real versus faux horn, crystal versus cubic zirconia, etc.) they both have great style cues and the Fossil version will cost you about a third less.
The Carlsbad Fossil store is constantly selling out of these watches, so if you want to try them on before you buy, give them a call first.
