In Character: Clarissa Darling

image

image

image

You know what Clarissa probably couldn’t explain? Her personal style. I mean, she was pretty much willing to try anything, and she wasn’t even remotely interested in coordinating—that matching business for Fergface (ew). —erica

image

A Venessa Arizaga bracelet with some ‘tude—possibly a gift from Sam?

image

An Alice + Olivia vest—because this one would never pass up a layering opportunity.

image

Knit biker shorts by ALL Knitwear, to be worn under something plaid or floral or just plain crazy.

If you’re itching for more “In Character,” have at it.

Next Level: Charm Bracelets

image

With all that jingle-jangling, charm bracelets just feel so sophisticated FUN. Like Eloise or F.A.O. Schwartz or something. Here, four that would make your wrist supremely happy. —erica

LEVEL I: Bing Bang keeps it simple with just three little charms (in a trio of diff metals).

LEVEL II: So classic, Lulu Frost! Grandmas everywhere approve.

LEVEL III: Crosses made of bones—Erin Wasson adds a dose of darkness to the mix. 

LEVEL IV: Pearls and…EYEBALLS. You crazy, Venessa Arizaga.

There’s a whole lotta “Next Level” to be had!

In Character: Claudia Kishi

I’m not here to debate which Baby-sitters Club member was the coolest, but Claudia was for sure a top contender. She was an artist. She loved crazy hairstyles and dance parties. SHE HAD HER OWN PHONE LINE. And she liked to dress a little nutso, even if Mary Anne and Kristy just didn’t get it. —erica

Floral overalls from Motel that Stacey would toootally wanna borrow.

A Venessa Arizaga bracelet that looks right at home in her mess of a bedroom.

A Rachel Rachel Roy vest with lots of pockets for stashing candy.

You won’t believe how much more “In Character” there is. See for yourself.

An eyeball, a hotdog, a skull, a Budweiser—Venessa Arizaga made, like, the ideal September bracelet, for when you’re coming down from summer and gearing up for Halloween. —erica

Next Level: Pink & Red

Pink and red are not supposed to hang together—they kind of have a Capulet-Montague situation going. But, done right, man, can sparks fly. Four classy-cool ways to go. —erica

LEVEL I: How adorbs would these Loeffler Randall sandals be with rolled-up chinos?

LEVEL II: God, those blush-y hues. Reed Krakoff, you know what you’re doing.

LEVEL III: The cut-outs on this Mara Hoffman dress just contribute to the color-blocking masterfulness.

LEVEL IV: Subtle? Heck no. But this Venessa Arizaga necklace sure is fly.

Subtlety? Yah, no, that’s not Venessa Arizaga's thing. This is. —erica

A couple weeks ago, we went to a wedding with Confetti System decorations, one of which looked the coolest piñata you’ve ever seen. We were tempted to bust it open, and this Venessa Arizaga bracelet is what we were hoping would spill out. —erica

This Venessa Arizaga bracelet is like Coney Island for your wrist—the mix of seashells and nonsense trickets, the fun-ness combined with the sheer weirdness. —erica
