There is one thing about me that you may (or may not) know and that is I love unique, quirky, and creative things. Whenever I go shopping if a salesgirl tries to sell me something by saying "This is our most popular item", she will never get the sale. Not that I make things difficult for her, but I don't like to be the same as everyone else. I get attracted easily to small little details that speak volumes about an intelligent mind of the creator or designer. That's the reason why I fell in love with JORD watches when I first heard about the brand.

The uniqueness about JORD watches is that they are all hand-crafted and made of all natural wooden materials. If you like to be in touch with nature, as much as I do, you'll probably fall in love with this watch even more. Beside the natural materials, the wonderful craftsmanship on the watch truly amazes me. I picked a Maple and Silver watch as I loved how sleek and chic it appears. It is Jord's first lady' automatic timepiece and now it's also my first automatic one. 

As cheesy as it may sound, this watch is JORD's and my mutual Love. As I said, I love unique and quirky items, especially when it comes to fashion. We often think of wood as building materials, home furniture, or paper. How often do we see wood in fashion perspective? I didn't see this coming, not until I discovered JORD. How JORD team sees the connectivity between wood and fashion inspired me. They gave me an inspiration for this outfit post.

I was in an earthy mood to dress up and saw this snake-skin blouse in my closet. It was a perfect match: Snakeskin Shirt and Timber Watch. That moment, I knew exactly where I wanted to go: into the woods.  

Thank you so much JORD for partnering up this blog entry!
