In Character: Susan Lawrence

I distinctly remember the first time I saw Big thinking that Elizabeth Perkins, as Susan Lawrence, was such a grown-up lady. Like, it didn’t get more adult than her. Well, she was 28 when that movie came out. Here’s how she looked the part. —erica

Weather Vain: Charleston, South Carolina - 81 and Partly Cloudy

image

The weather’s starting to turn in NYC, but in Charleston? Definitely still walking-down-King-Street-in-sandals temps. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A minimalist Miranda Bennett that’ll earn appreciative nods from the guys at the cool-dude shop Indigo & Cotton.

+ A pair of simple slides from The Palatines—for shuffling around Heirloom Bookshop, prettiest cookbook store imaginable.

+ To keep the sun out of your eyes on the roof of The Vedue: this Rag & Bone visor.

+ A 10 Crosby Derek Lam skirt that’s WAY ready for an oyster-fueled meal at The Ordinary.

+ Alynne Lavigne earrings the color of High Wire’s sorghum whiskey.

+ A slick, silver clutch by Baggu that’s ready for any ol’ thing.

Click, click, click for more “Weather Vain.”

Weather Vain: Boise, Idaho - 79 and Clear

image

Can you believe this weather in Idaho right now? Oh, boy…see. —erica

+ Tiny ruby Blanca Monros Gomez earrings, as classic as a PB and honey sandwich from Bleubird.

+ A 3.1 Phillip Lim dress that really takes advantage of this shockingly warm October weather.

+ A ring, from Artasan, that would look stellar cozying up to a fork and diving into the tasting menu at State & Lemp.

+ Ready for a stroll around Camel’s Back Park? Because these Ash boots are.

+ A Clare V. clutch that’s, well, clutch in most every situation.

+ Shades from Cheap Monday—so you can check out all the happenings in Hyde Park.

There’s a whole lot more where this came from!

Next Level: Smiley

image

Hey, y’all: The grin is in. (Not that that would surprise Bobby McFerrin for a second.) Here’s how to put a smile on your body and, I’m sure, your face. —erica

LEVEL I: Bing Bang keeps things super-subtle (and, obviously, adorable).

LEVEL II: Happiness is this Anya Hindmarch scarf, no?

LEVEL III: A single earring from Alison Lou with at least 2x the charm.

LEVEL IV: Markus Lupfer knows that some days require something more intense—this sweater's like wardrobe prozac.

If this made you happy, so will this.

In Character: Nina Sergeevna

image

image

image

Question 1: Are you guys watching The Americans? Question 2: If not, why? Nina Sergeevna—an employee at the Soviet embassy played by the sultry-as-what Annet Mahendru—is one of those supporting characters that sucks you right in. And her wardrobe’s pretty baller, too. —erica

image

A Band of Outsiders shirtdress down to woo an FBI agent.

A serious, shrunken blazer from The Row that belies that underwear collection of hers.

Ursa Major earrings that take a strange turn—just like her story (BOOM).

If you’re looking for an “In Character” fix, here’s your chance.

Weather Vain: Aspen, Colorado - 79 and Clear

image

If you’ve ever been to Colorado in the summer, you know that people who see this only as ski-bum country are totally missing out. And Aspen in August? Less fur, more fresh mountain air. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A silk top from Alexander Wang that would look totally right hanging in a suite at The Little Nell.

Blanca Monrós Gómez earrings that deliver a little “Aspenglow” (« John Denver shout-out!).

+ Slipping into these K.Jacques wedges and heading off to Peach’s for bfast = the ideal way to start the day.

+ This Suno skirt feels Frenchie enough for trout almondine at Brexi, right?

+ An Eayrslee wallet you can slip into a backpack when hiking Lost Man Loop.

+ A Tarin Thomas ring that would look pretty sweet flipping pages at Explore Booksellers—a local institution for sure.

Get away with us. All kinds of “Weather Vain” here and now.

In Character: Princess Peach

image

image

image

Her mood swings give her special abilities, she forgives Bowser for being such a G.D. jerk, and she can play baseball, basketball, tennis, and golf with the best of them—as far as princesses go, Mario’s main squeeze is a pretty cool chick. Here, how to cop her look. —erica

image

Dannijo earrings that can handle some Mario Kart off-roading. 

image

A Jenni Kayne dress that kills in Mushroom Kingdom or anywhere, really.

image

A necklace from House of Harlow that looks like it could maybe, possibly be traded in for an extra life.

It’s “In Character” madness over here.
