Los Angeles-based twin designers Kymberley and Alexis McClay design fun, flirty clothes in colors that pop for their line Naven. Naven has been spotted recently on celebs like Lauren Conrad and Kim Kardashian.

We love this line because Naven’s fall collection really makes neon wearable, whether it’s a hot pink mini or an electric bow on a blouse. The McClay sisters also try to keep their price points under $200, which is something everyone can appreciate. Here are some of our favorite pieces, available at

Naven Bow Blouse $160

Naven Pretty In Print Blouse $110 (on sale from $180)

Naven Ruffle Flock $70 (in sale from $200)

Naven Nautical Blouse $120

threads09.pngJewelry designer Asha Patel believes jewelry should mean something to both the designer and wearer. With this philosophy in mind, she launched her most recent collection, Threads, last month. Threads includes nine symbols that translate into different meanings from different parts of the world. The pendants are made of hand-cast sterling and hang on colored silk cords.

The necklaces ($45 each), including OM, Peace, Heart, Lotus, Clover and Ribbon are designed to bring the wearer luck, love, peace of mind and more. As if that’s not enough to ask from a piece of jewelry, a portion of sales from three of the styles, Ribbon, Peace and Lotus benefit charities of Patel’s choosing (the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Doctors Without Borders and Asha for Education, respectively).
