The Weekend Guide

peg and awl!

Home is where the art is.

PERUSE
Peg and Awl
What:
The Philadelphia-based husband-and-wife team embrace a postmod world with an eye to vintage. We’ve long been fans of their bags, and they’ve now expanded their wares to include kitchen, office, and garden goods.
Why:
A reclaimed oak iPad easel ($50), antique miniature book necklace ($42), and apothecary spice rack ($100).
Where:
Available at pegandawlbuilt.com.

SHOP
Erin Fetherston
What:
One of fashion’s more beloved upstarts launches an online boutique full of ethereal wrap dresses, tunics, and cardigans.
Why: The embellished ruffle wrap dress ($345) and bow-back cardigan ($225) are garden party hits in any zip code.
Where:
Available at erinfetherston.com.

MUSE
Tivoli Radio
What:
The midcentury radio brand’s new vintage-screened smartphone app (free) channels news and music feeds from around the world.
Why:
Flit from Monte Carlo jazz to BBC World Radio with the swipe — or tap — of a finger.
Where:
Available at itunes.com.

ALTER
eShakti
What:
Affordable dresses customized to your height, length preference (short, above the knee, or midcalf), and favored neckline (halter, wide, tie up, or spaghetti straps).
Why:
The chambray retro frock ($60), caftan maxi ($60), and sunny garden shift ($65) have endless potential.
Where:
Available at eshakti.com.

GIFT
Betabrand Sock Insurance
What:
The ingenious company promises its patterned socks last a year. Buy a pair ($13), and if holes appear, simply upload a funny picture to its Facebook wall and receive a new pair.
Why:
Your poor, unfortunate soles will thank you.
Where:
Available at betabrand.com.
