Scout Society: Of a Kind's Claire Mazur and Erica Cerulo

Choice words with the limited edition-loving duo

Meet Scout Society members Claire Mazur and Erica Cerulo.

How do you pay the rent?
We’re the founders of Of a Kind, where we sell the pieces and tell the stories of emerging fashion designers. [12]

How else do you fill your days?
Erica:
Cooking and hanging with my bunny, Patsy Stone (named for the Ab Fab character, as if I had to tell you.) [2] God, I wish I was more interesting.
Claire:
Going for a run around my hood every morning to catch some pretty views and clear my head before the workday and finding time to hang with my friends. [9]

Who are you following these days and why?
Erica:
@annieleelarson — A knitwear designer who always tells a good color story. [3]
@helenr — A cool Saveur editor who takes really enticing food pics. [8]
@ohjoystudio — Who has the cutest baby (toddler?) on the whole Internet. [6]

Claire:
@frommetoyou — Our photographer, Jamie Beck, for the adventure envy.
@snoopdogg — For the laughs. I mean … [7]
@roanzone — And finally, my main squeeze, for the rich assortment of pictures featuring him with various rap personalities (and the ATL twins). [11]

Let’s get Scouting. A self-portrait?
Erica: Milestone — upgrading to a diamond nose ring.
Claire: In Minneapolis hanging out at the Walker Art Center with Yayoi Kusama’s “The Passing Winter.” [10]

Your morning coffee?

Erica: PG Tips tea with almond milk in a Russ & Daughters mug. I know what you’re thinking: baller.

Your significant other, lover, or BFF?
Erica: The boy and his shiny new hat! [4]
Claire: Here he is carrying his nephew around in a plastic carton meant for storing shoes. I chose him because I knew he’d make a responsible parent one day. [1]

What was the last thing you bought?
Erica: Okay, this was a gift, but a matte black cream and sugar set from Michele Varian.
Claire: A camel-colored wool coat by Céline for 70 percent off — pictured here in the dressing room during deliberation period. It pays to have a Jewish mother who drags you out of bed at 7 a.m. on December 26th to hit the department stores.

Your “special” place?
Erica: My nightstand! That Vogue cover was designed by Salvador Dalí. Amaze, right?
Claire: My living room — these Dutch cabinets were in my grandparents’ apartment on the Upper East Side when I was growing up. [5] I love that now I have them in my own New York apartment.

What one photo do you refuse to delete from your phone and why?
Claire:
This is my spectacular Grandma Shirley. She has no filter between her brain and her mouth and is always chatting animatedly. You can get a taste of it via Twitter at @panicles.
