Kaelen's resort 2015 collection is inspired by Joan Didion's Play It As It Lays. I mean, as if I wasn’t into it enough already. —erica

Marriage Material: See Just How Erica’s Wedding Went Down

Major 2013 milestones? A big one for me was getting married to the straight-up wonderful dude who would probably rather not be pictured here. It was a low-key affair—is it weird to use the word affair when talking about weddings?—at Manhattan’s City Hall (technically the City Clerk’s Office, but you know) with just our fams…and some goodness from a few up-and-coming designers, obvi. Here’s how we made it official. —erica

image

The amazing Kaelen made my dress! It’s WHITE LEATHER. (Thought that warranted use of the caps lock key.) It’s the same cut as this one from her fall 2013 collection, and it fits like a GD glove. (The shoes are coming later—don’t worry.)

image

Custom suit, what, what. The savvy crew at Brooklyn Tailors whipped this sucker up for Thomas—it’s charcoal and super-timeless and has bells and whistles like hand pick-stitching that suit freaks die over. That *adorable* polka-dot bow tie? His grandfather’s.

image

Our rings were masterminded by the lovely Blanca Monros Gomez.They’re rose gold, a metal that—as the designer taught me back when—looks good with pretty much any skin tone. My engagement ring has black diamonds (cause I like ‘em), and my wedding band has sapphires (cause they’re Thomas’s birthstone). 

image

Ok, so the accessories: I wore a Lulu Frost bracelet (something borrowed!) that felt appropriately retro-cool for the venue and Alexandre Birman shoes (something very blue!) along with Thomas’s great-grandmother’s wedding ring and earrings that were my grandma’s (somethings old). And I carried a blush Clare Vivier fold-over clutch that’s been my go-to for weddings, mine or not—so, something new-ish?

image

After we got our paws on that marriage certificate (and had our pictures taken by our Ann Street Studio pals), we walked over to the awesome, festive Blaue Gans for lunch—Claire sent flowers by Taylor Patterson of Fox Fodder Farm for the tables!—and then booked ourselves a sweet room at the Bowery Hotel for the night.

image

Next up: a big ol’ party at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago to celebrate. The unreasonably talented Lisa Hedge of Venamour made our invites. I sweat them so much that I wanna get one framed.

Looking for more wedding madness? Ok, then.

Next Level: Asymmetrical Wrap Skirts

image

Let’s be real: If you’re going to cope with chilly legs, it better be for good reason. Here, four skirts totally worth pulling on the never-quite-warm-enough tights. —erica 

LEVEL I: This Elizabeth and James number is black and blue in the best of ways.

LEVEL II: Wooly and warm! And not too short. This Kaelen guy can totally go to the office.

LEVEL III: There’s something so luxe-looking about this faux pony 10 Crosby style. Very tony, if you will.

LEVEL IV: Yah, there’s a lot happening here. But this Kenzo sitch goes so well with black tights, black tops, black boots…

It’s “Next Level” madness!

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure this Kaelen number is what the expression “LIKE WHOA” was created for? —erica

Next Level: Statement Shearling

Shearling rarely gets the chance to be the star of the show, but these coats really go there. Here, four ways to rock it in a serious way. —erica

LEVEL I: Meet material-blocking: shearling on top, tweed on the bottom, courtesy of Kaelen.

LEVEL II: Forget shearling lining. This R13 denim sitch is about turning things inside-out.

LEVEL III: Aside from the cuffs, which create a full-blown Samantha Parkington effect, this To Be Adored coat is super straight-forward.

LEVEL IV: BAM. The collar of this Preen Line number is detachable, just in case you ever want to tone things down. Not that you ever should.

Do a deep dive into the “Next Level” archives!

I’m sure that Kaelen came up with a great name for this dress, but I’m going to call him Mohawk anyway. —erica
