This weekend i learned a lot of life lessons. some of them big, some of them small, some of them silly.

1. be wary of air b and b. we used it this weekend and ended up in an awful railroad apartment with tons of random people(we ended up staying at a friends). we are trying to battle it out for a refund, but are very surprised at how sketchy the site can be.

2. NYFW is not my cup of tea. as a girl who loves vintage (but appreciates designer clothing) i was shocked at the consumerism and the flashiness of it all. fashion is supposed to be fun, and it just wasn't. i have to wonder if everyone feels that way, or if some are so wrapped up in it that they don't.

3. we live in NY. i'm sorry, but it's still so surreal. everyone was counting down their days/ hours/ minutes feeling bummed about having to go home. it was exciting to not have to leave NY!

4. red hook is awesome. we would totally live there.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

  1. Yep! You're a lucky girl, I can't wait to move to NYC this Fall, so that I don't have to count hours/ days/ etc when I need to go back home.
    I'm sorry to hear about your bad experience with Airbnb, so far I've heard people only praising it, but I guess as it became very popular way of renting a place for smaller bucks than it's case when staying at hotels, then of course lots of scammers got on the "ride" too...

  4. there are some things that I don't love about Fashion Week as well...like the sense of entitlement from people. I love fashion week b/c I love seeing what the designers have up their sleeves but its some of the people that attend the shows that take the joy out of it. Also it truly has become a circus. People show up just to be seen and have their pictures taken.

    Anyway I love your whole look!! And Red Hook is great! Did you go anywhere in particular? I love the winery on the waterfront as well as Baked and Brooklyn Crab.

  5. I don't get to see the real NYFW since I've never even been to New York, but from this side of the week, I can definitely sense a lot of that negativity. It's one of the reasons why I don't think I could ever make fashion my LIFE yknow? It would suck out all the fun of it first of all, but a lot of people in that line of work get really really deluded, and for solid reasons, but at quite the cost.

    Really digging your outfit! I love the hat and boots, and I'm glad you had a backup place to stay. I've only used air bnb once but I had a good experience.

  7. Totally agree that fashion should be fun. But I can see how people who make it their entire living could be negative/ultra consumer-y about it. At least you experienced some of fashion week. I really like the outfit you wore here with the double plaids. So cute.

  9. I totally agree with point #2 and I feel my dislike of fashion week grow more and more as it continues to happen. It's all just so fake which I'm really not that into. Love the outfit of course :)

  10. OMG! I love our picture! Please send me the high-res one we want to print it. We don't have a lot of pictures together. ;)
    I agree with you on Fashion Week, what a disappointment! For girls like us that our passionate about style is definitely not the place to be.
