Can you tell what’s happening with this adorable Rachel Rose top? Those are little balls of white silk sewn onto the navy backdrop—yes, very knot-ical. —erica

Class Action: See What Went Down at Our Make Like a Designer Workshops on Saturday

On Saturday, we hosted a trio of designer-led, make-something-way-cool workshops at Sunday Suppers in Williamsburg, and, you guys, THEY WERE SO FUN. You know what we couldn’t believe? How creative the attendees were—that blew our minds all damn day. Just check it out. —erica

image

The Sunday Suppers space, in South Willamsburg, feels kind of like a secret—a gleaming white oasis in an industrial-looking building on Kent Ave.

image

The first class: Caroline Z. Hurley teaches us how to block-print linen scarves. After sketching out shapes, everyone cut stamps out of linoleum and got busy with the paint.

image

Those stars! SO GOOD. Pale pink ones were added later…

image

Round two: Erin Considine shows us how to braid bracelets. And these are not the sort you made at sleep-away camp: They require kumihimo braiding disks and some real concentration.

image

After the bracelets were constructed, they got a dye job, c/o the all-natural plant-fueled tints Erin simmered on-site.

image

The last class of the day was led by Rachel Rose, who showed everyone how to paint silk tees. (Magic tool: an eyedropper!) Here she is giving a little design guidance.

image

Yes, from white tees to this in two hours. Stunning, right?!

image

Oh, and all day long we ate and ate food from Karen Mordechai’s majorly slick kitchen.

image

Just some quiche and concord grapes and the best (homemade) plum jam you’ve ever had.

Check out what else is happening at Sunday Suppers here!

Next Level: Mint

I don’t know what it is, but minty green always seems to have more ‘tude to me than your average pastel—the whole range of which are all over the goddamn place right now. Here’s how to work the ice-cream-y hue. —erica

LEVEL I: Toss this camel-and-mint braided Rag & Bone belt over a striped tank dress, and all of a sudden you’ve got a look.

LEVEL II: The breezy silk top Rachel Rose made us is hand-painted—so it nails the also-popular watercolor note, too.

LEVEL III: The cut of these A.L.C. pants is so business-y. With tortoiseshell glasses, you’d immediately feel 43% more like Jenna Lyons.

LEVEL IV: Basta Surf gives the tankini a (much needed) makeover, in a color that looks surprising good on un-sun-kissed skin.

Lovin’ “Next Level?” Get yo’ self some more.

Alumni Sunday: Isabella Mint Silk Tee by Rachel Rose

About this time last year, Rachel Rose made her first silken edition for us, and it flew. Now girlfriend is back, this time playing in pastels and polka dots—a combination that just feels so right. And though the hand-painted motif on this breezy little tee is bold, it’s not so out-there that you can’t pair it with a snakeskin-stamped mini or that patterned denim that’s popping up everywhere. —erica
