What We're Buying: A Chic Handbag, the Perfect Tee, a Funky Hair Accessory and Killer Blazer
Have you bought anything you loved lately? In the PEOPLE StyleWatch offices, the answer to that question is usually “Yes.” This week, we’re all modeling our most recent finds — and Nicole Richie is weighing in on the floral blazer she loves for spring.

Catherine Kast, Writer/Reporter: While perusing My Kitsch, a site that stocks adorable dainty earrings that resemble the ones that the models wear in their secondary ear holes, I discovered these Bun Pins. I know it sounds like I just said “Bump It,” but don’t worry, it’s not that. It’s much better.
Now that April is coming to a close, I’m going to mourn the end of Princess Kate’s fashion tour Down Under and half-mourn the end of Coachella by wearing this accessory that gives me the best of both worlds. Let’s call it a tiara with a twist. I wore it with a pretty regular twisted bun and a semi-side-swept front. If you wanted to steer your look more festival-chic (or you think you’re a modern-day Khaleesi) try a loose deconstructed sock bun with lots of pieces hanging out in front and rock the feathery version. Maxi dress not required.
Nicole Richie: I just bought this Givenchy jacket the other day and I’m excited about it. I’m excited about it for spring. I just like the way it fit, I liked that it was a little bit oversized and just something new for spring.

Zoë Ruderman, Deputy Style and Beauty Director: T-shirt company Pickwick & Weller recently asked a few editors and bloggers to test-drive their tees and share tips of accessorizing the pieces. Fast forward to a few weeks later and this white V-neck has become one of the most-worn items in my closet. The silhouette is just right (flattering deep-V, not-too-short sleeves, longer hemline, comfy, stretchy material) and it’s clean and crisp so I don’t feel shlumpy when I wear it to work with jeans on Fridays. I added my favorite Stella & Dot “Rebel” pendant and this sunny perforated clutch for a recent dinner in Brooklyn Heights, and I may or may not have slept in the tee that night, too (what? It’s really comfortable).

Whitney Little, Associate Producer: When it comes to handbags, I’m a one-purse kind of lady. My latest bag has been with me every single day since September, and I decided it’s time for a break now that the weather is finally warming up. Obviously, my standards are high when it comes to purchasing a new bag — after all, it’s a big commitment. But when I laid my eyes on this Sorial accessory, I knew it was true love.
The tote and I made our public debut over the weekend, and I got tons of compliments. I love the (vegan!) leather’s look and feel, and the orange adds a nice pop of color for the summer. Plus, the bag is roomy enough for me to store everything (my entire apartment would probably fit), but it’s super lightweight. And the best part: I scored 66% off the regular price! I have a feeling my new tote and I are going to be very happy together — until my next true love comes along.
