Even with all the smart phones telling us the time, there’s something special about looking at your wrist and finding a beautiful timepiece staring back. From sporty and fun watches to those that whisper “elegance,” wearing a watch is an expression of personal style.
We at Thirsty Girl believe that approach is like wine – what we choose to drink is an expression of our sipping style. So, we’ve partnered with the folks at Watch Station to bring our Thirsty Girls not only a wine and watch pairing extravaganza for their new store opening in San Francisco, but also a chance to WIN gift cards and beautiful timepieces. Only the best for our best Thirsty Girls.
Grab a glass girls and get ready to play … just make sure you’re on time to the party!
