On their own, the three materials that make up these Kora bangles are pretty rad—horn (a byproduct of the food industry), recycled brass, and pretty pastel leather—but when they come together…WHOA. Soft and hard, slick and rough—all kinds of magic. —erica

Weather Vain: Phoenix, Arizona

Right about now is the perfect time to be in Arizona, no? I mean, I don’t actually know this, but it seems right: The days are warm but not hot, and the nights call for a jacket. Here’s what I’d wear in my little Phoenix fantasy world. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ This easy, breezy Edun dress is pretty much all-season around these parts, with thin sweater or woven scarf tossed on top when necessary.

+ Keep it simple with a slim cork wristlet from Rag & Bone. Pairs nicely with a glass or three of wine at Postino.

+ You gots to have your shades, man, and this Raen pair is Hunter S. Thompson loud but still supremely classic.

+ Kora's leather-wrapped horn bangles can hang in Scottsdale.

+ This beige suede jacket from Alexander Wang wards off the desert chill during your long-ass wait at Pizzeria Bianco.

+ Yes, they are spike earrings, but Gretchen Jones knows how to make them a surprise.

+ Because K. Jacques knows you need a POC (pop of color, duh).

This Kora bangle is like the anti-tennis bracelet: On top of its dope design, it’s made of recycled brass cast in Kenya and conflict-free diamonds. —erica

This Kora necklace (made from sustainable materials) features a bow. See it? It might help to use the Magic Eye skills you acquired way back when. —erica
