In Character: Gina from Empire Records

image

image

image

When you were in high school, you probably knew girls like Gina. She was trouble—but the fun kind. She loved attention. She was witty (“Well, ‘Sinead O’Rebellion.’ Shock me, shock me, shock me with that deviant behavior.”). She was a big ol’ pile of sass. And her whole 1995 look? So not shocking: It feels very right now. —erica

Little silk shorts from Equipment—because Rex Manning Day.

Rachel Comey clogs ready to take the stage for a "Save the Empire" performance.

An orange Unison apron—worn on its own, duh.

Weather Vain: Toronto, Canada - 72 and Clear

image

The Toronto International Film Festival is underway! Here’s what to wear if you’re exploring the town SLASH watching movies all day. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ A surprisingly comfy By Malene Birger skirt—because elastic waistbands make theater seats a whole lot better.

+ Garrett Leight shades, so you get mistaken for a celebrity.

+ The sort of bracelet, by Giantlion, that you should pack for every trip.

+ A tote from The Stowe with plenty of room for chocolate-y snacks c/o Soma.

+ Loose and breezy—this Organic by John Patrick shirt is totally cool with you gorging on Campagnolo's wild mushroom pappardelle.

+ Rachel Comey mules that can handle a little shopping on Ossington Ave.

More of this “Weather Vain” thing! Lots more!

Next Level: Off-the-Shoulder Dresses

image

This look: Very Princess Di…and Vivian Ward. Here, four ways to make it look all modern and hip. —erica

LEVEL I: Halston's take is as classic as they come (and a little Funny Face, no?).

LEVEL II: Is there such a thing as a let’s-run-away-and-get-married dress? If so, Kenzo made it.

LEVEL III: Rachel Comey does belted AND velvet in the best way ever.

LEVEL IV: Ok, this Christopher Kane version is pretty throw-back. And equally major.

You want more of this, don’t you? Come on.

Next Level: Silk Trenches

image

Is it obvious that we’re dreaming of warmer (drier) weather? That would allow us to wear not just a trenchcoat but a SILK one? Cause we’ve been spying these ‘round the internets, and we’re feeling them for sure. —erica

LEVEL I: Doesn’t get more classic than this—you’d have this Thom Browne one for decades.

LEVEL II: This Rachel Comey sucker would even look good layered under a heavier wool coat (in other words: you can wear it now).

LEVEL III: This blue. And why is this Adam Lippes take making me think of Tilda Swinton?

LEVEL IV: From Wood Wood—very sunshine, lollipops.

All the “Next Level” you can handle!
