In Character: Gina from Empire Records

When you were in high school, you probably knew girls like Gina. She was trouble—but the fun kind. She loved attention. She was witty (“Well, ‘Sinead O’Rebellion.’ Shock me, shock me, shock me with that deviant behavior.”). She was a big ol’ pile of sass. And her whole 1995 look? So not shocking: It feels very right now. —erica

Little silk shorts from Equipment—because Rex Manning Day.

An orange Unison apron—worn on its own, duh.

Weather Vain: Brentwood, California

image

Claire and I spent last week housed in Brentwood—and I’d be lying if I said it was easy to leave. An ideal outfit if we’d stayed four more days… —erica

+ Skinny straps that are right for the L.A. climate in a color that feels like October, from Steven Alan.

+ A Eugenia Kim hat to cover-up post-SoulCycle hair.

+ Getty Center views, meet this Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer cuff.

+ A white denim Rag & Bone jacket—as creamy as the scoops at Sweet Rose Creamery

+ The sort of earrings—from Dream Collective—that all the girls at Jenni Kayne would go nuts over.

+ These No.6 clogs = minimalist perfection. Kinda like the incomparable sushi at Sugarfish.

A “Weather Vain” front is moving in…

You can call this Anntian guy a clog, or you can call it the ombre SURPRISE. Completely your call. —erica

When are we going to be completely over clogs, do you think? Because these open-toe, saddle-shoe-inspired suckas from Bryr are making me think NEVER. —erica

Interior Inspiration: TBSP, NYC

The Of a Kind office is located in the heart of the Ladies’ Mile District (wait, you don’t call it that?), which means for lunch, plenty of options abound. Our favorite? TBSP, whose founder Melissa Chmelar insists on using organic products from upstate New York. With its long wooden tables, wallpaper (!), and cozy atmosphere, TBSP makes for the perfect spot for iced latte breaks or snack-fueled meetings. It makes me think of family dinners in the living room—and hence, this comfort-driven mash up. jiayi

1) A knit dress by the Berlin-based line Boessert/Schorn that’s interesting enough to wear outside, but roomy enough to lounge around in.

2) A leather and canvas bag, available at Hickoree’s, that is appropriate for work but can just as easily reinvent itself into a stylish beach or travel bag.

3) Chalkboard paint for an otherwise unused wall. Bonus points for funky colors like Tilano’s Divaberry.

 4) Clogs by the Sweden native Nina Ziefvert, who started selling the shoes at Brooklyn Flea before they made It footwear status.

5) This mirror, designed by Grace Feyock, that’s sure to liven up any space, wallpapered or not. 

6) Our Sophie Monet Pyrite Pyramid necklace! Confession: I looked around for casual-yet-collected necklaces for hours with no luck, until I realized the ideal one was actually right in front of me. So, um, don’t follow in my footsteps.
