Weather Vain: Silver Lake, Los Angeles, California - 87 and Partly Cloudy


We were in L.A. last week, and you know the one thing we don’t like about that place? Leaving. Wah. Here’s a getup that’s itching to head to all of our right-off-the-101 haunts. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A Kieley Kimmel top ready to hit the boutiques around The Junction.

+ A piece of cool-girl fine jewelry from the L.A. sisters behind Gabriela Artigas.

Proud Mary loafers comfy enough to stand in line at Sqirl.

Damir Doma culottes that are ready to catch any breeze that comes their way.

+ A Job & Boss wallet-slash-clutch that won’t weigh you down at L&E Oyster Bar.

Head here for a whole lot more “Weather Vain.”

Weather Vain: Paris, France - 52 With a Chance of Rain

Even when it’s rainy there, we’re itching to be in Paris. I mean, we aren’t fools. Here’s what we’d wanna be wearing if we were so lucky today. —erica


Clockwise from top left:

+ A black Hope button-down that, with its asymmetrical hem, is so much more.

+ A glam Kelly Wearstler cuff that will make you even more bummed that you missed The Sporting Project's latest pop-up dinner series (a good reason to book another trip!).

+ The sort of easy necklace by Gabriela Artigas that won’t get in your way in the French Trotters fitting room.

+ This Gryphon trench will keep you dry..and motivated to make the walk to La Pâtisserie Des Rêves.

+ Nothing’s wrong with a little flash—especially in the form of these stroll-ready, Marais-friendly Dieppa Restrepo shoes.

+ Try not to empty this Clare Vivier wallet at Merci. Just do your best.

+ Iris & Ink leather pants the color of the wine that’s bound to fill your belly.

Weather Vain: Santa Monica, California - 72 and Partly Cloudy

We’re in L.A. this week! And, to celebrate, I figured I oughta put together an ensemble that would be perfect should we make our way a smidge west today. Ah, ocean breezes. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ Sure, they’re glittery, but the shape of these Loeffler Randall sandals have a total walking-the-pier vibe.

+ This Pamela Love ring adds a pop of color to an otherwise neutral outfit—goes well with the lush greenery (and the lobby of the Viceroy), no?

+ A silk Vanessa Bruno jumpsuit with a forgiving waist gives you the option to order the cheese plate and sweet potato fries at Father’s Office.

+ This chunky necklace is by Gabriela Artigas—who lives a quick drive away (well, depending on the traffic) in West Hollywood.

+ With its open weave, this bronze-y Kelly Bergin sweater is just warm enough for a pre-sunset beach stroll.

More “Weather Vain!” Right here! YES!

Leather cuffs call to mind Ozzy Osbourne, Edward Cullen, and, ok, Hot Topic. But the one that Gabriela Artigas made us is something entirely different. Constructed of rich, hunter green leather with tiny gold details, her take is supremely subtle—and feminine in an unobtrusive sort of way. —erica

BUY / 45 of a kind / $70

The Los Angeles-based Mexico City native Gabriela Artigas made her first bracelet by taking out the bristles of a toothbrush and molding the colorful wand into a cuff. They were so popular she ended up contacting the manufacturer to order thousands of the brushes. This bow tie necklace has a lot less to do with oral health, but we suspect it will have as many fans. —jiayi
