may28th-watches-thumb.jpgYour watch doesn’t have to be classic or simple - in fact, you can go crazy bold with May28th’s 50/50 collection, in stores now. Inspired by mixing and matching, these watches feature bright colors, two tone bands and fun geometric patterns. Best of all? Each watch is only $39 at and stores like Urban Outfitters. They make the perfect spring outfit pick-me-ups that won’t empty your wallet. 


BR6D0949.jpgMeet one of the designers taking up a significant amount of space on our spring shopping list: Ramy Sharp. She launched Ramy Brook in 2010 as simply a line of versatile tops that could go anywhere from the office to a night out, and the collection has rapidly expanded to include separates, dresses and even bags (coming fall 2013). We caught up with Sharp this week to get the scoop on her newest pieces.

Sharp’s spring collection was inspired by the beauty of colors. “Spring represents a change in the weather, and bright colors represent being happy,” she explained. “Wearing happy makes a woman feel radiant, inside and out, and confident.”

One of Sharp’s favorite pieces from the new collection is the Addison silk top. “I love the low V, it shows off a sexy part of the body and looks great with a chunky necklace.”
