Tick Tock its time to Shop!
This post was inspired by a request from one of my favorite people: the always fabulous Katrina (co author of one of my favorite blogs Hey Little Birdie)
Although watches make a perfect purposeful accessory that all women love, I have yet to feature them on Color Me Courtney.

Consider this post as your person shopping guide to fabulous fashion watches, all the featured watches will be under $500.
