Weather Vain: New Orleans, Louisiana - 84 and Clear

image

Y’all, it’s getting hot in NOLA. Here’s how to spend the day before the steaminess of summer fully sets in. —erica

Illesteva sunglasses as classic as a Pimm’s cup at Napoleon House.

+ A Gryson bag that matches a powdered-sugar-dredged beignet.

+ Cutoffs by Mother ideal for bopping around the Bywater.

+ The sort of Collina Strada tank that can handle the heat (and at least attempt to hide any sweat stains).

Faris earrings—a perf tribute to bananas foster, no?

+ These sandals from Vince = down for dinner on the porch at Boucherie.

It’s “Weather Vain” central! Right here!

Couple Up: Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson

image

It was pretty hard not to feel invested in Nick and Jessica—thanks for that, MTV. Here is, after three seasons and three years of marriage, what we’re left with. —erica

Nick Lachey: A ball chain necklace by Giles & Brother, a fur collar Patrik Ervell leather jacket, and a Vince zip-up sweater.

Jessica Simpson: Silver hoops from Melissa Joy Manning, a pink leopard Dinou top, and a sparkly Tom Binns bracelet.

Weather Vain: Long Island City, New York - 28 and Clear

Not sure if you’ve noticed, but it’s officially winter—at least in and around NYC. Here’s how to bundle up and look good in LIC. —erica

Clockwise from top left:

+ The kind of bag—from Thomas IV—that won’t fall off the shoulder of an overstuffed down coat.

+ Ilse Jacobsen boots that are ready to attack snowy icy streets.

+ Gloves from Saturday that’ll warm up your paws faster than a ginormous coffee from Sweetleaf.

+ A 3.1 Phillip Lim sweater that’s alllll about protecting your neck.

+ Easy but cool—this Lizzie Fortunato necklace wants to have dinner (mussels! crepes!) at Cafe Triskell.

+ Some leatha for your legs, from Vince—to help deal with any windiness on the walk to the Q train.

+ Stripes! Because those are good for ANY weather. Care of Jonathan Simkhai.

Way more “Weather Vain” if you click this way.

In Character: Felicity Shagwell

"Get in my belly," "Mini-me, you complete me,” "I’m dead sexy"—there’s no forgetting Austin Powers. Or Heather Graham prancing around all long legs, big hair, and doe eyes. This is how she rocked it as a CIA agent who went to great lengths to place that tracking device. —erica

image

A crocheted Viva Vena! dress that matches the beam of that GD laser…and Fat Bastard’s back hair.

The sort of Parker romper that’s still hot in 1999.

Vince over-the-knee boots, ideal for a jaunt to Dr. Evil’s moon base.

Filtered: That’s a Wrap

It’s barely been scarf weather in NYC (well, until today), but yesterday I busted out our Symmetry Goods edition—and shocked myself with how much I liked it with a faux fur jacket from Thomas Sires. I mean, who knew. The rest of the get-up: J.Crew baseball tee, Vince pants, Thomas IV bag (for Of a Kind), and Gap boots that are as comfy as sneakers. —erica

In Character: Jerri Blank

Jerri Blank was both a TV thief and the scene-stealer, and her wardrobe speaks to that cracked-out brand of kook that Amy Sedaris knows best. To really embody the character, turn to synthetic materials and truly unfortunate shades of brown. —erica

A Nicole Trunfio necklace that speaks to her Aramapu roots.

A turtleneck sweater from Vince that perfectly frames her ever-changing hairstyle.

High-waisted, wide-leg pants by Apiece Apart reminiscent of the decade when she first attempted high school, before she became a boozer, a user, and a loser.
