What We’re Wearing: Upper Arm Cuff
I wanted to add a new fun piece of jewelry to my wardrobe. I was inspired by how the ear cuff really took off, but the style just isn’t for me. I’m a bracelet kind of girl. And I’ve worn them every which way—I did the arm party when that was happening, sometimes I’ll do one on each arm, and other times I’ll slide on one statement-making cuff. But I wanted something new. I had an ah-ha moment when I came across a photo of Kate Moss wearing an upper arm cuff. And then off I went on my e-commerce search.
I stumbled upon this Nasty Gal piece and immediately placed an order. But when it arrived, it was a bit too perfect for my taste. So I twisted it around and played with it until it looked just right. (There were a few panicky moments when I thought I ruined it.)  You’d never know, right?

What We’re Wearing: Aglit Italy Soft-Leather Shoelaces
Since sneakers have gone luxe, from slip-ons to hidden wedges in everything from calf-hair to silk, we’ve been contentedly mumbling about our fashionably happy feet. But one element of the shoe’s design seems to still be largely ignored: the humble shoelace.
Enter Aglit Italy, the N.Y.C. “luxury laces” company that just might change everything. While copyediting InStyle’s July “Kickin’ It” story (on page 104; the issue is available now on newsstands and for digital download), freelancer Anne Egli happened to be sporting a pair of these next-level laces in a coppery color that popped against her metallic kicks .
"My friend Tarik Baker is cornering a niche market," she says. "These are the ultimate accessory for sneakerheads." She says she punches up all of her kicks using one of the many color, texture, and finish combinations (including suede), possible on the site. Even the aglets (those are the tips that stop the ends from fraying) can be upgraded to a nickel or gold plate. “And I already have my eyes on another pair—fiery red!”
Just in: Aglit’s next East Coast pop-up store in New York’s Chinatown on June 28 will feature a hot new release—black leather fat laces.

What We Wore to the 2014 Governors Ball Musical Festival
This past weekend, I spent three days filled with sunshine and great bands at New York City’s big music festival, Governors Ball!
It was my second time attending, and it was just as fantastic as I remembered. Since I wasn’t a first-timer, I knew a bit more of what to expect, which meant plenty of sunscreen and a great hat. I based my outfit on my recently purchased straw fedora from Club Monaco, which I paired with a high-waisted white skirt I bought two years ago from Madewell and a black crop top from H&M.
Once I stashed my essentials in my go-to Kate Spade cross-body bag, I was ready to dance, hands free! It was a great weekend, and I can’t wait until next year, but until then I’ll be repeating this gem of summer wisdom that Frank Turner imparted during his performance: “Let’s do simple things in the sunshine.”

What We’re Wearing in the Rain: Marc Jacobs x Native Boots
The fashion industry has been hit with resort 2015 previews (collections that fall between fall and spring), which means back-to-back market appointments for weeks on end. There’s a lot of legwork, for sure, but even more so when there’s a torrential downpour outside. What’s a fashion editor to do?
InStyle Market Director Wendy Wallace’s go-to shoes for those dreadful rainy days are these too-cool Marc Jacobs x Native boots (a collab that launched several years ago), singing their praises for “not looking like regular rain boots.” 
She wore them with black coated J Brand jeans (joking that they repel water. “Just wear all plastic,” she drily advises on how to stay dry), and a casual-chic heather gray tee. As for her purse, she always goes for a cross-body style, leaving her hands free to hold an umbrella and coffee (or, her kid’s hand for school drop-offs). Chic rain-proof fashion has never been easier!

What We Wore: Tony Awards Edition!
The Tony Awards are the Super Bowl of Broadway, and as a superfan, I count down to watching the ceremony every June. Luckily, I get to actually attend—last night’s show marked my third time going.
In 2012, I chose a short dress (that I can’t even remember), and last year, I wore a long black gown with sleeves that restricted movement (I couldn’t even lift my arms). But I’ve learned. In a true Goldilocks moment, this midi-length color-block BCBG Max Azria dress and J.Crew earrings from Net-A-Porter combo was just right. It was flexible enough to let me walk across town to Radio City Music Hall (through the Puerto Rican Day Parade, mind you!), professional enough to interview the stars on the red carpet (including Lena Hall, Tony Goldwyn, Zach Braff, Fantasia, and more) before the show, and fancy enough to go inside Radio City Music Hall and join the hoity-toity guests to watch the main event.
As for the main event? It was incredible. Hugh Jackman was so lovable, Audra McDonald got an emotional standing ovation for her record-breaking win, and (my favorite) Neil Patrick Harris performed a number from Hedwig and the Angry Inch!

Scripted necklaces have come a long way since the famous "Carrie" nameplate on Sex and the City. Currently trending at the InStyle office—three unique pieces that spell chic (and their owners’ names).
From top:
Angelique Serrano (InStyle Beauty Director): Hers (dotted with a heart, no less!) was customized through the bending and shaping of wires.
Jennifer Ferrise (InStyle Assistant Editor): Now this is a one-of-a-kind necklace—given as a bridesmaid gift, her name was molded from her actual signature.
Sarah Balch (InStyle.com Associate Photo Editor): The more traditional one out of the bunch—hers is from the online personalization jewelry site Onecklace.com.
