WHOLE LOTTA JELLY: When did fashion become so straight forward? Black suit, tan shoes, black leather watch, blah blah blah. Brighten your mood with a Toywatch. The Jelly watch comes in fun colors and the band and head are interchangeable, so when you are feelin’ a little lime green in your life, go for it. When you are feelin’ dark, or even professional it's cool; they still carry black. Barneys.com
