In Character: Taylor Vaughan

image

No offense to Regina George, but I’m pretty sure that Taylor Vaughan was the best high-school movie villainess there ever was. (I mean, let that GIF up there remind you of her greatness.) Here, a tribute to the finger-wagging HBIC who was out to prove Rachel Leigh Cook Laney Boggs was not, in fact, all that. —erica

A Milly gown ready to make a scene at prom (and to dance to Fatboy Slim, duh).

All the “In Character” you can take!

Swimfan: 19 One-Pieces That Are Full-Blown Rockin’

One-pieces—or maillots, as the fancy girls call them—can be really freakin’ hot. Just ask Bo Derek, Farrah Fawcett, or Yasmin Bleeth (‘member her?). These are the ones—by up-and-coming designers we love—that we’re itching to stash in our beach bags. —erica

This Zinke one-piece, with it tiny little ruffle, is an ode to the swimsuit you wore with your diaper in the baby pool. —erica

Next Level: Shocking Pink

image

Pink can be a tough color to wear—which is why we suggest you just GO THERE, opting for the loudest, most flashy hue in the family. —erica

LEVEL I: Offset by camo, the bright cording of this Bluma Project bracelet is your classic POC (pop of color, guys). 

LEVEL II: As you can see, these magenta Wood Wood jeans look rad with black. 

LEVEL III: Lizzie Fortunato tassel earrings? Suddenly any dress looks waaay more fun.

LEVEL IV: Giejo mixes colors and patterns like a boss, and the vaguely athletic striping on this swimsuit keeps the Barbie color in check.

Get more “Next Level!” You’ll be happy that you did.

Of a Kind

Erica and I are pretty unequivocal about our favorite section of L.A.: Santa Monica. We’re not even beachy girls, but there’s something about walking along the sand all the way up to Venice that makes for the perfect getaway from the hustle of the city. (For the record, this is also how I feel about uptown/Central Park). So here’s my oceanside outfit, appropriately based in black, because it’s true what they say about being able to spot New Yorkers in Los Angeles by the color (or lack thereof) of their wardrobes. —claire

+ Acne sandals
+ Steven Alan hat
Norma Kamali swimsuit
+ Ace & Jig dress (made for Of a Kind)
Dannijo friendship bracelets

It’s L.A. month. More on that here.
