Cool Site Spotlight: Rings and Tings

Rings & Tings review

Recently I had the opportunity to review a few pieces of jewelry from an up-and-coming company and I must say I’m impressed with the ambition and point-of-view that its creators have put forth. Rings and Tings co-founded by Joys Cheung and Yiunam Leung began as a small boutique in London and has now become an online fashion store.

JCPenney Women's Spring 2014 Lookbook

JCP women's spring 2014 lookbook

As you begin culling spring fashion inspiration from around the web, take a look at the JCPenney women's lookbook; it showcases trends from JCPenney exclusive brands such as Worthington, Cosmopolitan, Bisou Bisou, Liz Claiborne, A.N.A., MNG by Mango, and JCP, plus shoes from Call It Spring. The black and white trend really stands out, as does colorblocking, bold stripes, and bursts of coral. I'm always drawn to the JCP brand (check out the anchor sweater and striped blazer after the jump). And the chic fashion-editor ensemble above? It's a blouse and pleather skirt by (surprise) Worthington! Nothing's over $66, and you can find these pieces online and in stores coming out now through April.

What do you think? Who's ready to give everyone's favorite budget-fashion underdog another look?!
