Weather Vain: Las Vegas, Nevada - 83 and Partly Cloudy

image

We just spent the weekend in Vegas for a wedding—a scheduled wedding, so don’t be getting any ideas—and here’s what we’d want to be working if we’d stayed an extra day. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A nice antidote to all of the bandage dresses floating around, c/o Tibi.

+ For those chilly desert nights: an Esther Bonte scarf.

+ A Lila Rice ring ready for a hang sesh at The Cosmopolitan.

+ Night out OR poolside lunch—this Eayrslee clutch can handle both.

+ A Fallon necklace that’s very Julia Roberts in Ocean’s 11.

+ Sandals from K.Jacques that you can wear far away from the poker tables—like when sipping an attempting-to-detox juice at Rachel’s Kitchen.

Weather Vain: Tucson, Arizona - 52 and Clear

image

There’s something pretty rad about being surrounded by cacti in the winter (or, heck, anytime at all). Here’s how to roll if you’re in The Old Pueblo today. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A desert oasis in the form of an Acne sweater.

+ The most stylin’ puffer vest ever, quite possibly—made by Helmut Lang.

+ An Eayrslee clutch chill enough to hang with an El Guero Canelo hot dog.

+ Aerin slip-ons that would earn lots of love from the Canyon Ranch crowd.

+ The sort of Lila Rice ring that’s ready for anything, anywhere.

+ The Dunbar Spring street art + these Iro pants = a match made in heaven.

+ Ready for a very healthful meal at The Tasteful Kitchen, this K/LLER Collection necklace.

+ Illesteva shades, for wandering Saguaro National Park.

There’s a whole lot more “Weather Vain” if you’re in the mood for some exploring.

Step Inside Mimi Eayrs’s Cozy Clinton Hill Apartment

Stay as long as you want.

“The space is like a Tetris game,” says Mimi Eayrs—who designs the bangin’ bag line Earyslee with Joanne Lee—of her Brooklyn pad. “We have optimized every corner for storage—we had to make sure we could squeeze everything in a way that doesn’t seem too cluttered.” See how she, her husband Jason, and their son Indigo have done a lot with a little space. —alisha prakash

image

“This is our living room. My husband made the coffee table many years ago. The blue book on it was a gift he gave to our son on the day that he was born. It is called Conversations with Blueour son’s name is Indigo—and has the most beautiful, delicate prints made with cyanotype. Basically, the whole apartment is a juxtaposition of both our styles. Jason is a little more modern and likes cleaner lines. I tend to be drawn to more vintage stuff, like the mirror above the mantle.”

image

“This picture was given to us by my best friend in Argentina for our wedding. It’s from an artist named Nahuel Vecino. We call it our auspicious painting.”

image

“We love vinyl. The record that is on—by Father John Misty—is what our son listened to while he was in the womb. When he was just a couple of weeks old, this was one of the few things that would really soothe him and put him to sleep. To the left is the Eayrslee Lou iPad bag and the Cooper mini bag in stingray. The painting is one of mine.”

image

“My husband made the four moons painting last year while I was in Brazil for business. He had never painted anything before and decided to try something out—which ended up looking pretty awesome.”

image

“My grandmother brought that little table with her all the way from Argentina, though it originally came from India. The photograph was a Polaroid our friend took at our wedding that he then blew up and gave to us. And that’s an Eayrslee yellow Henry wallet on the side table.”

image

“This used to be the Eayrslee office. Joanne and I always referred to Eayrslee as our baby…until the actual baby I had with my husband came along, and the space became his room. The curtain came from India; the rug we found in the north of Argentina, after searching for days. We picked the color for the walls before we found out the gender of the baby—it was a unanimous decision.”

image

“The little bunny was handmade in Argentina, and the rattle was a gift from our good friend. Whenever we’re changing Indi and he starts to cry, I say ‘magic!’ and shake the rattle, which makes the sound, that in my mind, they would use for a magic moment if our lives had a soundtrack. Indi loves it and becomes completely absorbed by it.”

image

“The painting on the left was a gift to Indi from his godmother in Argentina. It’s pretty crazy because it looks just like me, and it reminds me of how I would have drawn myself. We love it. The llamas come from a little town called Purmamarca in the north of Argentina, and the little drawing on the right is a mini Yves Klein that we printed on a regular old printer.”

Personal Shopping: What We’re Looking to Score from our Collections Designers

Have we told you how excited we are about Collections? Oh, we have. Right. But, we’re, like, wish-listing the crap out of it—true story. Here are the things that are on the tippy-top of our lists from each of the four featured designers.

K/LLER COLLECTION

image

Erica: “So, I just chopped my hair off (again), and I’m kind of obsessed with the idea of big earrings—but ones that don’t feel too glitzy-dangly, if you know what I mean. Basically, these brass ones, in a nutshell.”

image

Claire: “I’ve been contemplating trying to bring back the hoop earring for awhile now. (I refused to leave the house without them from 2000 to 2002.) These ones feel less Christina Aguilera-esque than the ones I wore in high school—which is a good thing.”

Eayrslee

image

Erica: “I don’t wear a lot of colorful clothes—but I DO heart a colorful bag. The blue, textured flap on this one is so enticing. And seasonless!”

image

Claire: “I go nuts for a good cardholder and this little guy is perfect for holding my ID and my metrocard—both of which are way too hard to find if I put them in a wallet with all the other stuff.”

Dusen Dusen

image

Erica: “Ah, tights—I’m already sick of ‘em. This winter, I vow to wear pants more often. Ideally these pants, with a black turtleneck sweater.”

image

Claire: “I’ve been on a real navy kick lately, and I’m especially loving it paired with black. I’m dying to wear this super easy little number with black tights and booties—and maybe a necklace layered under the collar?”

Ace & Jig

image

Erica: “When you throw on this dress and a big, chunky necklace, it looks like you tried. But, see, you didn’t at all. That’s the dream, in my mind.”

image

Claire: “I can’t stop thinking about this plaid skirt. The color combo is so freaking good and keeps it from feeling too much like a catholic-school uniform.”

Check out all the Collections goodness up for grabs.

Weather Vain: Denver, Colorado - 95 and Partly Cloudy

image

You know what is mile-high about this city today? The temperatures. Here’s how to cope with some steaminess in CO. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ TOMTOM earrings, as shiny as the coins coming out of the Denver Mint.

+ A 3.1 Phillip Lim dress that’s breezy enough for a (nighttime) stroll around LoDo.

+ These Warby Parker aviators + a humungo Novo Coffee iced latte = a recipe to beat the heat.

+ Kenzo sandals as upbeat as the vibe at Lucile’s. Mmm…po’boy lunch.

+ A frieda&nellie bracelet that’s ready to do late-night dins at The Squeaky Bean.

+ A little Eayrslee wallet with just enough cash for a pint of Crooked Stave beer.

Weather Vain: Los Angeles, California - 72 and Partly Cloudy

image

Tomorrow, I head to L.A. (to meet Claire, who’s already there!). Here’s what I’d be jonesing to wear if I was coast-swapping a day earlier. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Blk Denim leather jacket that’s just wishing, hoping, praying for warm weather.

+ Hoops! Brought to you by K/LLER and ready for a day of shopping on Melrose, West Third, or Sunset.

+ An Eayrslee wallet that proves you aren’t scared of those sunny, Cali hues.

+ A just-nautical Whit dress—take it out for some peel-and-eat shrimp at Son of a Gun.

+ The kind of House of Harlow shades that dot the pages of Us Weekly.

+ Cool girl, I-live-in-Laurel-Canyon shoes (boots? sandals? both?) from LD Tuttle.

We do this every week! This way to the archives…
