Weather Vain: Las Vegas, Nevada - 77 and Partly Cloudy
It’s always a hot one in Vegas, right? Today’s no exception. And while there are more and more places to hit off the strip, this is not the town for classic neutrals. Here, a party in a suitcase. —erica

Four Ways We Rock Of a Kind Editions on Hot, Hot Days
In which we imitate second-rate personal-style bloggers.
We wear the editions we sell on the site. Pretty much daily. Here, four of our favorite hot-weather Of a Kind looks and their IRL scenarios, as styled by Claire and Erica and photographed awkwardly in front of passing crowds by Claire and Erica. —erica
What: Our Veda vest with a Theory tank, J Brand cut-offs that used to be pants, our Sophie Monet necklace, a wooden bangle purchased so many years ago that I can’t believe I haven’t lost it yet and definitely don’t remember where I found it, and Joie sandals picked up in Austin, Texas, at By George after United lost my luggage (lemons/lemonade, etc.).
Where: To poolside parties at SXSWi (the reason for the trip to Austin)—I may have gone for the tech, but I still dressed for the music portion. If I can’t do rocker-chic in Austin, then I’ll never do rocker-chic.
What: Our light-as-linen-cause-it-is Ace & Jig dress with DVF mules, a Levi’s denim vest, our Brvtvs bracelet, and an Alyssa Norton friendship bracelet gifted to me by a friend years before they were a trend (snap).
Where: To that same friend’s rooftop party where there was (predictably) more cheese and dip than anyone should eat—hence the lack of a waistline.
What: Our Society for Rational Dress tunic with a vintage Donna Karan belt from the nineties (handed down from my mother) and a pair of Steven black pumps.
Where: To a serious meeting in midtown (blazer for air-conditioned conference room not pictured). Erica and I had a couple of disastrous days last summer where we tried to do profesh in the heat and ended up looking…sweaty. I got a little giddy when I realized this super-thin piece could transition to business-wear.
What: Our Lizzie Fortunato Jewels necklace with a gold chain of my dad’s, YSL heels (one word: Craigslist), and a dress from Kimberly Ovitz, a designer whose work I had been eyeballing for seasons before finally pulling the trigger.
Where: To a schmance NYC wedding, accompanied by a boyfriend in a vintage Dior tux that he scored on eBay and spilled red wine on almost immediately.
