Next Level: Quilted Florals

image

Listen, just because summer’s over doesn’t mean you have to ditch the florals—but you probably knew that already. How to make them a little more cool-weather-approp? Add some quilting. Four thoughts on that below. —erica

LEVEL I: Ooof, this creamy goodness from Tibi. Maybe with a little black turtleneck tee?

LEVEL II: If you’re worried about making your other sneakers jealous, don’t get these Soisire Soiebleu shoes.

LEVEL III: Masscob makes a moto jacket just a leeettle girly—but not at all prissy.

LEVEL IV: Now, here’s a fashion sweatshirt, c/o Wood Wood.

Hey, we’ve got a lot more “Next Level” that you should check out.

Weather Vain: Minneapolis, Minnesota - 69 and Clear

image

Last week, Claire and I went to Minneapolis. We love ourselves a Midwest work trip—and, somehow, I’d never been to MN. So, my question is, when do I get to go back? —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A ring by Kelly Wearstler that makes any outfit, really.

+ A Veda jacket that would be a total hit on the Target campus.

+ A wallet from Eayrslee with the sort of no-nonsense design the crew at The Foundry Home Goods would appreciate.

+ This Dealtry scarf + dinner outside at Borough before nice weather’s a thing of the past = a G.D. perfect night.

+ A Tibi dress that’s as cheery as the (amazing) cloud wallpaper at Marvel Bar.

+ Dream boots, really, from Loeffler Randall.

More of this! Bunches more!

In Character: Valerie Cherish

image

image

image

I definitely waited too long to watch The Comeback. What was I doing, exactly? And if you don’t yet know Valerie Cherish, washed-up sitcom star with expensive hair, a new catchphrase, and lots of hope, then I don’t know what you’ve been up to, either. —erica

A Stella McCartney for Adidas jacket that becomes an Aunt Sassy trademark.

A low-cut Issa dress that is ready to hit the upfronts.

A Journelle robe—ideal for recording personal video diary entries after a long day on-set.

Next Level: White Denim Jacket

image

Know what’s easier to pull off than a pair of white jeans? One of these guys—they just feel so fresh, you know? —erica

LEVEL I: Basic in the best of ways, c/o Paige.

LEVEL II: Very “I’m cutting class at Laguna Beach High School,” this NSF number.

LEVEL III: Oof, sheeeek, Victoria Beckham. Do you think this jacket alone could prompt a Sabrina remake?

LEVEL IV: This Christian Wijnants take is somehow more relaxed AND more crisp than a classic blazer.

More pseudo-trends to try this way…

This oversize blazer by Objects Without Meaning is ideal for the star of an eighties rom-com. And that’s obviously intended to be a selling point. —erica

Move over, blue suede shoes. There’s a blue suede *jacket* (from Todd Snyder!) in town. —erica

Couple Up: Madonna and Sean Penn

image

Oof, were these two trouble. Their nickname was S&M, for chrissake, and during their time married in the mid-eighties, his rap sheet was possibly as long as his list of IMDB credits. I mean, they look like they’re up to no good, right? Course that was also their appeal. —erica

Madonna: A blacker-than-black Wendy Nichol bag, a lace-up shirt c/o The Kooples, and striped shorts from Thakoon Addition. 

Sean Penn: A slim Todd Snyder polo, a leather jacket by Nudie Jeans, and charcoal Rag & Bone pants.

Dip into the “Couple Up” archives.

Couple Up: Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet

image

These two never met a pattern they didn’t like. I mean, to get inside their closets…oh, wait: That’s exactly what it’s like to be Zoe Kravitz, that beautiful creature. Damn her. —erica

Lenny Kravitz: A loud Yarnz scarf, a leather jacket from Billy Reid, and striped pants by Neil Barrett.

Lisa Bonet: A colorful Growing Jewelry necklace, a floral patchwork shirt from Markus Lupfer, and Saturdays sunglasses.

For more old favorites, head this way.

Whaaaat is this jacket, Rosie Assoulin? Second question: It would make perfect sense to own the bag + hat too, right? —erica
