Your New Summer Watch

Sometimes our clients inspire our fashion choices, which is how I came to own my new Sprout sparrow watch. One of our clients has been sporting a perfectly chic, white Swatch all summer.

The news wasn’t incredibly shocking, as the brand started by opening 32 stores in quick succession, before being forced to close a number of them recently. Not to mention, the brand also began with a contentious lawsuit because C. Wonder bares a striking resemblance to Mr. Burch’s ex-wife’s brand, Tory Burch. That said, they had some really cool stuff and it was a fun retail concept which …
