Charriol definitely saved the best for last. Before the final event, we had a quick photoshoot at Balesin’s very own Saint-Tropez Village!
The interiors looked like this. What a dollhouse! I’ve never been to Saint-Tropez before, but now I’m really curious. One day, hopefully!
For the photoshoot (c/o photographer Niccolo Cosme), they made the guests try on the new Charriol St-Tropez watches with customizable chains and clips.
We attempted to attach the clips on my own Charriol St-Tropez Infinite Summer watch just for the heck of it, and it worked! Good news for those who have existing St-Tropez watches! I can’t remove the chain though.
I chose matching rose gold “Disco Heart” clips, because I am safe and predictable like that.
The other guests were more creative - some stacked multiple clips on one side, while others deliberately chose mismatched clips.
Behind-the-scenes! St-Tropez-ception. St-Tropez on St-Tropez.
A cloudy sunset, but a beautiful scene nonetheless!
After our 15 minutes of fame, most of us proceeded to the highlight of the night - the Charriol St-Tropez Style launch dinner and fashion show at the Balesin Spa Garden and Pool.
Relaxing to the soothing sounds of the sea.
Just before the spa area was a small exhibit of the new St-Tropez collection. Here’s a closer look at the different clips that you can use to further personalize your St-Tropez watch.
The St-Tropez Style is crafted from stainless steel and features Charriol’s hallmark twisted cable strap. A white mother of pearl bezel and dial is etched with an exclusive guilloché pattern supplemented by polished counters at 3, 9 and 12 o’clock. A small seconds dial is shown at 6 o’clock and the Charriol logo appears at 12 o’clock. Each timepiece is made in Switzerland and contains a quartz movement. The clips and bracelet can be easily removed and interchanged, with a maximum of two clips around the strap. An optional variant with a pink-gold plated case and detailing is also available.
Intensely personal and unashamedly romantic: ST-TROPEZ Style pays homage to the enduring power of love, beauty and serenity. And that’s true style.

Pretty in plum! Congratulations Charriol, SSI, Saga Events, and Visions and Expressions for this amazing set-up!
The fashion show started with a male model holding a giant version of the Disco Heart clip.
Models posed in front of us for a better view of the customizable clips and chains.
My favorite clip!
The Lovebug clip is quite adorable too!
Sophisticated resort white to match Charriol’s more sophisticated way of telling time.
When accessories can also be accessorized. This chain with white pearls is a keeper!
The Ocean Echoes clip is perfect for all the beach babies out there who always want to be reminded of the sea.
The Name It Love clip. This would be a great gift to your mom, wife, daughter, or girlfriend!

The ever-so-gorgeous Ruffa Gutierrez won a Charriol bracelet! Can’t say I’m not jealous!
Last #OOTD before our flight the next morning.
Yup, still wearing it! Can’t wait to go to the nearest Charriol store to get my hands (or wrist?) on the newest clips.

Over the last few years I’ve managed to somehow build up a great follower count on my tumblr and I am SO thankful! I’ve started to get a little bored and I thought it was about time I started a new project over on blogger. My tumblr blog will still be active and I’d love for anyone that reads or genuinely enjoys my new blog to give it a follow as well. It will mainly be a lifestyle, product review, fashion blog. I’m putting my heart into this new blog and I really hope people enjoy the content I put into it. Please go and give it a read, it would mean the world to me.
