With pearl earrings, a pencil skirt, her grandmother’s ring, and a Southern drawl that slips out every so often, Smith Sinrod is a girl you’d happily take home to your parents.
In this video, the creator of By Smith explains her tried-and-true look. For those of you in New York, we filmed in one of our favorite spots, the alley leading to Freemans. For more information, go to bysmithcollection.com.

What would you wear every day if you could? (And you can’t say pajamas, because that’s a given.)
That’s the question we’re asking in our new series, My Favorite Outfit. In each video, the most stylish designers/boutique owners/cool people we know show us the clothing they currently dig head to toe.
In our first videos, we have three NYC-based heavy hitters: jewelry wunderkinds Lizzie and Kathryn Fortunato (above), Owen boutique owner Phillip Salem, and fashion designer Rachel Antonoff. Tomorrow, we’ll have Smith Sinrod of By Smith clothing.
Since it’s Fashion Week, we asked them to show us what they’re wearing for the shows.
We didn’t even have to tell them no sleepwear.
To see what our own editors are wearing this week, plus show coverage and giveaways, check out our Fashion Week Dossier.
We knew and loved Rachel Antonoff way back when she had brown hair. Now, nearly 50 years later, we feel the same.
Kidding. It’s been only seven years, and her artificially gray/blue locks are — how do the kids say it? — mad dope. That’s why we turned to her for the second video in our new series, My Favorite Outfit, in which our fashionable friends and idols show us their preferred getups.
For more information on Antonoff, go to rachelantonoff.com.
Spend one minute in Phillip Salem’s Meatpacking store, Owen, and your wallet will happily surrender (every item blurs the line between want and need, especially a certain Wayne leather tank).
Salem, who does all the buying, has impeccable taste. That’s why we chose him to kick off our latest video series, My Favorite Outfit. From Acne leather pants to Super sunglasses, he presents the ensemble he’d like to wear every day of Fashion Week.
For more information on Owen, go to owennyc.com.
How is it that Rafa can play a grueling three-and-a-half-hour match on Monday and walk directly out of it looking like someone we’d like to marry?
We’ll skip to the short answer: his hair. Which is why, for today’s video, we went to the stylist who gave him those locks, Julien Farel, to see if he could bestow the same sweat-proof allure on our beauty editor, Jennifer Jackson.
Farel, who has been the official U.S. Open stylist for seven years (his pop-up salon is next to the player’s gym at Arthur Ashe), opts for a braided ponytail with minimal product. We adore the guaranteed-to-stay-put look.
You might even call it love.

In recent months, donuts and their fans have gone a little bit crazy. See: cronuts.
Bypass three-hour waits and pay homage to the original by making your own old-fashioned cake donuts (no special tools required). In today’s video, Colicchio & Sons pastry chef Stephen Collucci — whose donut bible Glazed, Filled, Sugared & Dipped came out yesterday — teaches you how.
The best part of this recipe is that it’s customizable. We covered our creations in pistachio- and lavender-infused sugars, but Nutella was a thought (it always is).
Go wild. Glazed, Filled, Sugared & Dipped is available at amazon.com, $13.50. To stay sweet, check out our videos on making peanut butter pops, ginger cookies, and profiteroles.
Here’s the thing about lunch: It’s not breakfast (the most important meal of the day), it’s not dinner (the most important family time of the day), and five out of seven times it arrives in a brown paper bag. Bo-ring.
Make the midday meal fresh (and healthy) with a few simple tricks.
Keep an apple from turning brown by cutting it up and putting it back together with a rubber band (yes, it really works). Flatten a regular sandwich to roll and slice like sushi. Employ cookie cutters on the main course. And finish the meal with a special parent-approved treat.
We’ve got more parenting tricks of the trade. Learn to master the morning routine and turn a bored-nothing-to-do afternoon into a backyard wonderland.
We never expected to be envious about a life-size porcelain monkey hanging from someone’s ceiling. (Those teeth!)
Yet the moment we stepped into Vena Cava co-designer Lisa Mayock’s inimitable Williamsburg apartment, we wanted everything in sight — primate included.
In today’s Inside Story video, Mayock gives us a tour of the space she shares with her husband, Jeff Halmos of Shipley & Halmos, from ceramic-hand displays to the surplus of space agey triangles.
After watching, if you’re like us, you’ll want to scour eBay for awesomely weird collections to call your own.
We’re not monkeying around.
For information about Mayock’s company, go to venacava.com. To see how more fashion heavy hitters live, check out Lela Rose’s urban mansion in Tribeca, Kaelen Haworth’s East Village loft, and Hillary Taymour’s Brooklyn pad.
In today’s installment of Currently Coveting, chief correspondent Suchin Pak shows three of her favorite works of art, all by under-the-radar creatives. From a kitschy cat and mouse to a literal interpretation of “I heart you,” your walls are set.

In an informal editors’ poll on which one type of makeup they’d take to a deserted island, concealer, bronzer, and mascara topped the list. Eyeliner/shadow was nowhere to be found.
Until now. Ever since Pixi makeup artist Amanda Bell showed us how to do a subdued, bronzed smoky eye, we feel naked without it.
The look doesn’t scream “I’m going to da club”; it’s versatile enough for pretty much anything (we like it for summer, but we’ll definitely wear it into winter). Even better, it takes only a thin pencil, a thick one, a blending brush, mascara, and about two minutes.
We think you’ll find it indispensable.
Endless Silky Eye pen in Cafe Gold, available at pixibeauty.com, $15; Lid Last Shadow pen in Bronze Brilliance, available at pixibeauty.com, $18; Large Lash mascara in Bold Black, available at pixibeauty.com, $18; Natural Brow Duo, available at pixibeauty.com, $18.
We’re at that point in summer when we don’t want to buy new clothes, because fall isn’t far off. But we’re sick of everything we’ve worn the past four months. Here’s a solution: accessories. In today’s Currently Coveting, SuChin Pak has kanga-inspired brooches, statement necklaces, and dainty headbands that make the rest of your outfit feel new.
This week’s picks are available at winkandflip.com, camcicamca.com, and etsy.com.

You know when you find out a leading man is barely old enough to vote and then feel weird/gross that you fancied someone so young? The good news is that actor Miles Teller is 26.
Prepare for him to get even handsomer when you watch DailyCandy correspondent SuChin Pak’s interview, in which she finds out his thoughts on sex scenes, his hidden talents, and how often he visits f*ckyeahmilesteller.tumblr.com.

We all googled her following The Descendants three years ago (yes, she really was Marissa Cooper’s little sister in The O.C. for a season). These days, after scoring roles in The Spectacular Now and Divergent, Shailene Woodley needs no introduction.
DC correspondent SuChin Pak sat down with the 21-year-old starlet for today’s 5 Questions to get the scoop on her ideal warm-weather rendezvous, what her childhood was like, and her favorite inspirational quote.

There’s a difficult decision we face almost daily at this job: Do we tell the world about hidden gems or keep them to ourselves (to ensure we always get a seat)?
Just kidding. We always tell you guys everything. But if we were going to hide something, it’d be Bikinis, a Barcelona-inspired hole-in-the-wall cafe that’s been flying under the radar in Alphabet City for months.
In today’s video, we catch up with co-owner Karina Correa and get her to tell us the Bikinis story, from how the bikini sandwich (a gluten-free take on a croque monsieur) got its name to why she decided to open a restaurant after ten years in fashion design.
At the end of the interview, she even tells us the secret to life.
Clearly, the cat’s out of the bag now.
Bikinis, 56 Avenue C, between 4th and 5th Streets, Alphabet City (212-777-2277 or eatbikinis.com).
Anyone who thinks it’s hard to keep up with the Kardashians has never parented a 4-year-old.
One minute she’s shooting down a slide, the next she’s crawling in the sand. Wait, did you see where she went?
But we’ve found a way to keep tabs on your littles at least for a while. Turn everyday flip-flops into an afternoon of fun by gluing foam cutouts in the shape of footprints to the bottoms of their shoes. Then let them run wild — stomping down the beach, making water prints on the driveway.
Leaving tracks wherever they go.
It’s warm out there. Break the heat wave with a backyard bubble party and a scavenger hunt on ice.
You might be wondering, “How could a drinks table get better? There’s already alcohol on it.” In this video, see how Karen Mordechai of Sunday Suppers created a beverage station that quenches your desire for eye candy as much as your thirst.
