It’s no big secret that PeopleStyleWatch.com editors love new pieces. This week, we’re showing off the latest things we found, tried or were given that were just too good to keep them to ourselves.

And we want to return the favor. If you Tweet (@StyleWatchMag) or Instagram (@peoplestylewatchmag) a picture of the item and include #PSWshops, we’ll can showcase our favorites. And make sure to share shots of yourself wearing the item here; you might just see the latest addition to your closet on the site!

Associate Producer Whitney Little: There are few things I love more than the shoe section at Target, so this past weekend I spent a solid hour sitting in the store’s aisle trying on every pair available in my size.

I finally settled on two styles, including these bright yellow Prabal Gurung ankle-strap heels. I’ve had my eye on the entire line since it debuted, and the shoes definitely did not disappoint in person.

I totally fell in love with the unexpected color, as well as the comfortable fit (they don’t bother my feet in the least!). Most importantly, though, the heels look great on Instagram, which is really all that matters when purchasing a pair of shoes, isn’t it?

Style Director Andrea Lavinthal: After getting a laugh out of True & Co.’s April Fool’s eBRA app, I went on the online bra retailer’s site and ended up taking the two minute quiz to assess how well my bras fit. (Spoiler alert: they don’t.)

Based on my answers, I was directed to a selection of bras that should be better suited for my assets. I opted to do a “Try-On Box” which means I pick three styles that look promising (they offer a ton of great brands, so it was easy to choose), then True & Co. picks two more and sends them to try on at home. I keep what I like and return the rest.

I just placed my order today so I can’t report on the results yet, but already the experience was way better than getting to second base with a strange saleslady in a department store.

Style News Editor Alex Apatoff: Yes, I am 26 and the Easter Bunny still visits me. And no, I’m not embarrassed in the least, because the Easter Bunny (a.k.a. my mother) has great taste.

And one of the great things about getting an all-grown-up Easter basket is that I’ve long since traded eggs full of jellybeans for something a little chicer (but still colorful): great jewelry.

I wore these Kate Spade New York “Stripe Setting” studs with a navy blouse and hot-pink pencil skirt for brunch; they’re such a fun update to my everyday look and are a little different while still being conservative enough for work.

Now all I need is a boat to wear them on this summer.
