The Weekend Guide

inca boots!

Tread softly.

Inca Boots
Casual-cool footwear made in the mountains of Peru and imported by two guys from Austin, Texas. The suede shoes have lambskin lining, traditional Peruvian accents, and come in two heights and colors.
Why: Despite Tom Brady’s new (and confusing) spokesmanship, Uggs are fugly.
Where: Online at incaboots.com.

Pink Clouds Vintage
Fancy-schmancy designer wear (Chanel, DVF, Lanvin, Chloé) that comes to you already cleaned and repaired from ecofriendly dry cleaner The Laundry Stork.
Why: Now you don’t have to spend weeks searching for the perfect purple leopard-print YSL coat from the ’80s.
Where: Online at pinkclouds.com.

Vegan Brand V Bar Tube
What: No basket? No problem. Store what you need for a ride in a jaunty water-resistant cotton canvas bag ($50), complete with a reflective Scotchlite stripe for safe travels.
Why: Velcro it to any type of handlebars, even the mustache-shaped, upside-down-U kind.
Where: Online at rivbike.com.

Clara and Mr. Tiffany
Susan Vreeland’s historic letter-based novel ($14) about the life of a young woman living and working in New York City at the turn of the 20th century sheds light on a contribution to American decorative art that went unrecognized for more than 100 years.
Why: You’ll never look at a Tiffany lamp or window the same way.
Where: Online at amazon.com.

BaubleBar Jewelry
Legitimately affordable necklaces, earrings, and bracelets helpfully sorted by type (statement, delicate) or style (bangle, cuff) with enough variety to satisfy your inner Elizabeth Taylor.
Why: Stand out from the wedding party clones with a gold snake link necklace or spend a quiet evening on the ranch in the wishbone pendant.
Where: Online at baublebar.com.
