We’re tracking down the best and most notable fashion crowdfunding projects from around the web and delivering them to you in a simple roundup. If there’s a project that you’ve backed – or even a project that you founded – be sure to leave a link below so it can be considered for the next roundup. Check out this week’s roundup below: 

Fphresh Watches (Indiegogo) I love watches and I love wearing one every day, but I also want a watch that is unique that makes me stand out. If you feel the same way than you might want to support F(ph)resh Watches. The designers call the watch F(ph)resh with the P standing for people and the H standing for Humanity to show that People and Humanity are the core of their business. By supporting this American designed, and German produced watch you will give a child in need a month worth of eduation in Peru or Tanzania. The designers have partnered with one of the last family owned watch manufacturers in the Black forest, creating premium quality watches made out of 316L stainless steel. The designers have taken out 5 minutes out of the face to remind you to take time and do good every day. My favorite piece of the watch is the band that is made out of recycled fabric with a unique print, which makes each watch unique and low in quantity.


Thought Collective Design (KickStarter) Ladies, if you love tribal print and comfortable pieces, you must check out the Thought Collective Design. The pieces of this collection are perfect for music festival, a walk on the beach, or a BBQ. This is a Fair Trade handmade clothing brand that employs and empowers mothers facing poverty in Africa, so not only will you look sylish and feel comfortable, but you will also support women in need. Each piece of clothing has a story behind the woman who made it so you will not only be wearing an amazing piece, but you will be carrying an amazing story!

Look no further, Dick Moby Sustainable Sunglasses are the answer to the question! They run at a fair price and come in plenty of different designs and patterns which caters to people with different styles.

Review: Viktor & Rolf BONBON Eau de Parfum
The avant-garde fashion house of Viktor & Rolf have done it again. The newest fragrance to every women’s beauty vanity should be BONBON. This exclusive fragrance is currently only available at Saks Fifth Avenue as 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum ($115.00 - $165.00). It is the newest addition to the fragrance family, and I like to say the sister to the highly successful Flowerbomb. Victor & Rolf are no stranger to creating beautiful and unique scents, so it’s not a surprise that we are absolutely in love with the new BONBON Eau De Parfum. It honestly blows my mind that they have created another scent that smells so good. It’s just not fair to the others. Like many, I was one of those women that thought I would grow old wearing only Flowerbomb, and believed that there was no other fragrance that could compete with it. But BONBON Eau De Parfum has arrived, and it is here to stay. This is the type of item that I will have at the top of my wish list for every occasion and holiday. There should even be an official BONBON holiday that is national recognized and observed.
The balance of aromas is divine, and like no other. The top note of tangerine, blackcurrant, and orange are just enough to give an appropriate sweetness without feeling like a preteen. The orange blouson, jasmine, and peach are also a good feminine addition and are featured beautifully. The base of Guaiac Wood, Cedarwood, Caramel give a warm comforting element that is mature and almost androgynous. The bottle design is signature to the Viktor & Rolf brand. A bow to me is a staple in all things regal and is seen on every red carpet and couture house. In fashion a bow is everything! It’s a beautiful symbol of “you can look, but can’t touch.” Secure and confident but approachable. The women that wears BONBON is sophisticated, fun, inviting and fashionable. She is your recent college graduate who’s single and entering the real world, but also the established business owner who is confident and sure of herself. She is complete and confident. I have made this my signature scent and I encourage you to do the same. Salute to an another amazing fragrance offered by the amazing duo, Viktor & Rolf.

Nail polish is one of those beauty accessories that gives us the opportunity to play around with color in a creative way. So put away the ox blood polish and bring out the coral, spring time nail color is here! With the warmer weather approaching it’s time to bring the attention to this season hot new nail polish colors.
