It’s tough to get excited about most iPhone cases, but this Mansi Shah one is another story. —erica
Stuff We Love
Cranberry sounds so…early aughts. And maroon has a certain team spirit vibe. But beet? Now that feels right for fall—maybe paired with outwear in a nice goat cheese or sherry vinegar. (I know–ha, ha.) —erica
Dontcha think these suckers, from The Palatines, would make the ideal first-day-of-school shoes? —erica

8 Newsletters That We Cannot WAIT to Open
We know—you’re probably trying to clean out your inbox, to find that always-elusive unsubscribe button. But hold up for just one minute ‘cause there are actually a handful of newsletters that we think you should absolutely, without-a-doubt be getting and (how about this?) reading. They’re stuffed with smarty-pants tips and intel that will make you feel savvier, more informed, and just generally less daunted by all the things—well, at least that’s the effect they’ve had on us. —erica
This is like magic: It ensures you have all the news (like, hard news about Ukraine, ebola, Pope Francis) that you need to start each day. We feel like we owe the girls who masterminded this a thank-you note.
+ Ann Friedman
Not only does Ann Friedman write all kinds of things we love (for New York mag, The Hairpin, and Elle), but she also puts together a beyond-brilliant Friday rundown of all of the stuff on the internet you want to know about but don’t yet.
+ The Business of Fashion
Our go-to for fashion news, from the breaking stuff to longer, thoughtful features and interviews…
+ Uncommon Update
…And the other source we turn to daily to make sure we know what’s up in the sartorial realm.
This site, which sells limited-edition prints, is the one that inspired ours, so obviously we’re diehards. And once you start reading the stories behind its art, you will be too.
+ Lauren in the Afternoon
IRL, we’re always asking Lauren Sherman what she’s into and what she’s contemplating, so we were stoked when she started delivering a digest of her weekly reading and writing to our inboxes.
+ Now I Know
Do you love lifelong-learning? Do you heart knowing obscure things about equally random topics? Sign up.
+ A Series of Tubes
This is, like, the chillest beauty newsletter imaginable. Amanda Mattos just gets it.
Um, no, it is not too late in the season for this Thomas Sires jumper. Because how thrilled will you be to be able to toss it on with a blazer in October and to not have to shave your legs? —erica
If you’re never seen Justified, you probably don’t truly understand the appeal of Timothy Olyphant. But give this show three episodes, and, well, you’ll be right there with me—100% chance. —erica
A signature cowboy hat by Goorin Bros. that is worth getting into a bar brawl over.
Motif of this No.6 dress: the Catskills. —erica
If your tan game is as weak as mine, the only way to bring summer into the fall is by literally carrying it with you. Let this candelabra, by The Dreslyn, take over your dining table, or hang a garland, c/o Jamali Garden, by your window to distract you when the leaves start to turn. Salty air (unfortunately) not included. —alex ronan
